FINDING OUT
ABOUT UPCOMING EVENTS

There are many opportunities for Scouts of all ages throughout the calendar year, and beyond.

There’s nothing quite like planning, and as Scouts, there are no shortage of things happening or coming up. Whether you’re a leader or a parent of a youth member, we all like to get a heads up and be able to plan around things.

Whilst some events do have a short lead time, we are endeavouring to give you at least some kind of idea of when things will be happening or are coming up. This page will be regularly updated.

Our various units meet weekly, during the school term and will return for 2024 in the second week of school.

  • Cubs: Tuesday evenings, 6:30-8pm
  • Joeys: Friday evenings, 6-7pm
  • Scouts: Friday evenings, 7:30-9:30pm
  • Venturers: Friday evenings, 7:30-9:30pm

Some of the events that will be on at some point during 2024 that we do not as yet have dates for, may include:

  • Cub Day Out
  • Bambara District Cub Camp
  • Joey Fun Day
  • Joey Region Camp
  • Tri-District Swimming Carnival
  • Rockschool
