OneCamp 2023

OneCamp 2023 (planning name) in a new initiative of Scouts WA that will provide a unique major event experience for members across all sections from Joey Scouts to Rover Scouts.

Planning for our new major event is gaining momentum and we’re now recruiting enthusiastic Scouting people to join our Design Squad and Event Team. Both youth members and adult members are encouraged to get involved.

Join our Design Squad

We’re searching for youth members with a passion for Scouting to be the voice of youth members on the Event Team to craft an authentically youth-led major event.

As a member of the Design Squad, you’ll work in a diverse team of young people to decide on the future pathway for major Scout events in Western Australia. You will represent young people involved with Scouts WA to ensure our brand-new major event is a huge success!

You will work collaboratively with the Deputy Event Director (Youth) and other Design Squad members to craft key elements of OneCamp 2023. Support will be provided to help you grow into this role and develop the required skills.

Check out these benefits of joining the Design Squad:

  • Design the biggest Scout camp in WA.
  • Develop your leadership and teamwork skills.
  • Learn about event management.
  • Make new friends from across Scouts WA.
  • Have fun testing activities you create!
  • Receive a limited-edition Design Squad shirt!

Join our Event Team

The Event Team is responsible for overall leadership of OneCamp 2023, with the goal of providing an authentic and memorable major event experience for all Scouts WA members. It’s a big challenge but with a great team leading the way we’ll get the job done and have some fun along the way.

This is a unique opportunity to be involved at the ‘ground floor’ and help shape our new major event right from its inception. Joining the team is a great way to gain new skills, meet new people and help to craft an awesome event for all Western Australian Scouts.

Our Event Team will have a strong focus on the Youth Leading, Adult Supporting concept. Each team will be led by two Directors working collaboratively – one position available to a youth member aged 16-25, and one non-age specific. Support will be provided to help all team members grow into their role and develop the required skills.

We are currently recruiting Directors across five teams: Program, Operations, Catering, Marketing and Hub. There are also opportunities for two Deputy Event Directors, and a Risk and Safety Lead.

Further positions will be made available as OneCamp 2023 takes shape over the next year.
