Large events and contingents banner

Scouts Australia receives many invitations to events around the world. When sufficient expressions of interest are received, a contingent is established. Information about applications and deadlines can be found by contacting the nominated Contingent Leader or by contacting the International Office.

Other events that Scouts Australia has received an invitation to attend are listed as Upcoming Events. If you're interested in attending, you must contact the International Office who will collate expressions of interest from around Australia, and make provision for a contingent to be established, or for an individual to attend on their own.

Don't forget that you can also plan your own overseas adventure - but where there is an international event hosted by another National Scout Association, a contingent must be coordinated through the International Office.
