Mini Expedition

Mini Expedition

An overnight offsite experience with a specific focus as paddling, sailing, hiking, target sports, or science.

Scouts will choose their Mini Expedition before arriving at OneCamp 2023. Selections can be made on your OneCamp application.

Duration: Two days (overnight)
Location: Offsite  

*Mini expeditions are subject to change due to operational requirements and participant demand.



At Dwellingup Scouts will explore Lane Poole Reserve. This offsite Mini Expedition includes bushwalking trails, swimming in the Murray River, and swinging through the trees at the Dwellingup Treetops Adventure. Treetops Adventure in Dwellingup will let you fly on over 80+ aerial challenges including flying foxes! Scouts will need to bring along their own lightweight tent for this Mini-Expedition.  


Launch your Mini-Expedition on the banks of our Swan Valley campsite as you and your Patrol begin your journey downstream towards Perth city. Paddle for a few hours downstream before arriving at Bayswater Sea Scout Hall for your overnight camp. Enjoy a relaxed evening movie with your mates. Continue paddling next morning till you reach Perth city. Finish your overnight paddle experience with Perth’s ultimate thrill ride – climb up to the 35-metre-high launch platform and ride the 400m zipline back down at up to 75km/hr! Travel back to the OneCamp site by coach ready for dinner with your OneCamp Unit.  


Never been sailing, but always been curious? We’ve got the perfect Mini Expedition for you! Head out to Waylen Bay Sea Scout Hall and tackle a crash course in Aquatics before boating over to the Scouts Water Activity Centre for lunch and an afternoon of sailing skills. There’s the possibility of a sneaky power boat ride to Elizabeth Quay after dinner (weather permitting). Day 2 will involve a day sail over to Pelican Point for lunch, before heading back to Waylen Bay and the OneCamp site by coach ready for dinner with your OneCamp Unit. 


Our How Ridiculous Mini-Expedition is a unique opportunity for Scouts to explore the exciting world of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through hands-on the Edith Cowan University School of Science, tackle problems and build your knowledge in a variety of STEM fields. Combine STEM and bushwalking as your Patrol tackles a geocaching challenge to collect your very own mini STEM kit. Look beyond our world at the Gingin Discovery Centre as you explore the universe after dark. Finish your two day STEM deep dive with a session at Scitech before heading back to the OneCamp site by coach ready for dinner with your OneCamp Unit.  


This challenge puts your skills to the test, as you navigate through various obstacles, both physical and mental. You’ll work with a team to overcome challenges and develop your problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership skills. Whether you’re an experienced Scout or just starting out, the Survivor Challenge is an excellent opportunity to push yourself to new limits, and make lasting memories with your fellow Scouts. Get ready for an adventure you’ll never forget!  


MAC Attack is a must-try for adventurous and thrill-seeking Scouts! This high-speed adventure will take you on scenic trails around Manjedal Adventure Centre. You’ll develop your mountain biking skills and test your endurance on challenging terrain during a half-day mountain biking experience at Langford Park. Back at Manjedal Adventure Centre tackle a huge selection of Vertical activities including abseiling, tunnels, archery, and the climbing wall. Enjoy an outdoor cinema at night before tackling more Vertical activities throughout Day 2. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, MAC Attack is a great way to challenge yourself, bond with fellow Scouts, and enjoy the great outdoors.
