Joey Scouts

Joey Scouts are invited to attend OneCamp 2023 for two nights from Monday 17 April till Wednesday 19 April 2023. A coach will collect metropolitan Joey Scouts from designated pick-up points across Perth on Monday morning and return them to the same point on Wednesday afternoon. Travel for Joey Scouts based in regional Western Australia may be on Sunday 16 April 2023 and Thursday 20 April 2023.

Joey 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
