Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts are invited to attend OneCamp 2023 for four nights from Saturday 15 April till Wednesday 19 April 2023. A coach will collect metropolitan Cub Scouts from designated pick-up points across Perth on Saturday morning and return them to the same point on Wednesday afternoon. Travel for Cub Scouts based in regional Western Australia may be on Friday 14 April 2023 and Thursday 20 April 2023.  

Cub Scouts will camp in a OneCamp Unit, consisting of other youth members and adult Leaders from their Scout Group and at least one other Scout Group. Discover more about OneCamp Units here.
