Sydney news

By Halia Liszczynsky

Wiseman's Ferry NSW was the location for Plast Stanytsia Sydney's annual summer camp this year. "Little River", the campsite was home for over 80 plastuny and families from December 26th 2012 through to January 2nd 2013.

The theme for this year's tabir was "Nastupniy Krok" symbolising the next step after 100 years, which was celebrated at last year's UMPZ in Canberra.

Under the capable and experienced leadership of Komandant Lenny Lulka, assisted by Pysar Volodya Shender, Skarbnyk Myron Iwanczuk and Bunchuzhniy Julian Grodzicky the camp flowed from day to day with many exciting activities for campers of all ages.

The Little River campsite is a favourite of Sydney's plastuny, and it's easy to see why. Once you cross the Hawkesbury River on the Webb's Creek Ferry, you enter a picturesque, rugged valley populated by a variety of Australian wildlife, which is simply breathtaking in its verdant beauty.

Webb's Creek, which runs through the campsite only a few metres from tents, provided welcome relief from the heat for campers as the days wore on.
