What is OneCamp

OneCamp is our brand new event concept for Scouts WA, bringing together everyone from Joey Scouts to Rover Scouts to participate in adventurous, fun, challenging and inclusive activities linked to Milestones, Outdoor Adventure Skills and Special Interest Areas.

Our theme for OneCamp 2023 is Eclipse. Western Australia is the best place on the planet to see the total solar eclipse in April 2023! Just as the sun, moon and earth align, OneCamp 2023 – Eclipse will unite our age sections as we share out-of-this-world Scout adventures.

Bringing our One Program vision to life, all participants from Joey Scouts to Rover Scouts will camp together in OneCamp Units, supported by adult Leaders. OneCamp Units will camp together, eat together, tackle activities together, and support wellbeing together. OneCamp Units will be grouped together to form OneCamp Villages.

OneCamp will be held during April 2023 in the Swan Valley, around 30 minutes from Perth City. Expeditions and offsite activities will be held across Western Australia.

Official applications to attend OneCamp 2023 are not yet open. Applications will open later in 2022 and will close in December 2022. The application opening date will be publicised widely through our usual communication channels. In the meantime, you can register your interest and be the first to know when official applications launch.
