Scouts are invited to attend OneCamp 2023 for eight nights from Tuesday 11 April till Wednesday 19 April 2023. A coach will collect metropolitan Scouts from designated pick-up points across Perth on Tuesday morning and return them to the same point on Wednesday afternoon. Travel for Scouts based in regional Western Australia may be on Monday 10 April 2023 and Thursday 20 April 2023.
