QUEENSLAND CONTINGENT INFORMATION
24th Australian Jamboree
Cataract Scout Park, Sydney New South Wales
3 – 14 January 2016
Welcome to one of the greatest experiences of your life. A jamboree is a unique event in which you get to camp with your fellow Scouts for 10 days. You will make many new friends, meet up with some old friends and experience new cultures. You will have the opportunity to experience non-stop activity during the day and on into the evening. Don’t let an opportunity pass you by, be prepared to Leap into Adventure.
General Jamboree enquiries can be made to the QLD Contingent. You can email email@example.com or call Qld Branch HQ on 38707000.
I look forward to receiving your application to become a member of the Queensland Contingent and sharing this Jamboree with you.

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL COUNCIL!
Kawana Scouts has recently received from SCRC a grant of $1000 to be put towards the purchase of camping equipment. We were able to purchase 3 new Dune 9 canvas 6-8 person tents, a new 4 burner gas bbq and a 9kg gas bottle. This equipment will be able to be used by all sections and we are very grateful to Council for their assistance. We have now completed our project to update the camping equipment with the purchase of these final few items.
On Monday 15th September 6 Cub Scouts from Kawana Scout Group received their Grey Wolf Award. Congratulations to Alex, Eli, Ella, Hamish, Lauren and Zac – Well done! Being able to present 6 awards at one time is quite a feat and one Kawana is very proud of! (Particularly when we have already had 2 more from the beginning of 2014!) 8 in one year! Fantastic!!
