This is an opportunity to gain experience in sleeping away from home in tents, learn new skills and meet other Joey Scouts from Moonee Valley District.

A full fun program will introduce some new Joey Scout skills, including camping in tents, that’s right… tents!

It is also great preparation for this year’s Kangaree, “Beyond All Limits” which is the major scouting event for the Joey Scout Section.

Please register via the TryBooking link:

CareMonkey invitations will be sent once you’re confirmed as attending.

Parent Helpers are required to assist with catering and running activities, so If your parent/s can help, please ask them to let your Leader know and fill in their availability via the TryBooking form.

Rovers, Venturers and Scouts are also wanted to come and help assist with running activities. If you have a Scouting sibling, ask them to come have fun and help! Or ask your Scout, Venturer and Rover sections.

It is expected that Joey Scouts will have had their breakfast before they arrive to camp.
