Adventure (OAS badges and more)

Adventure in Scouts

Scouts provides adventurous activities locally at the group level with trained leaders, and for some specialities, through other Scout centres and outside centres.

Scouts adventure training courses are available for Scouts 14 years and older, and detailed in the Scouts Qld training calendar. See the Welcome page for access details for external Scout resources. USI (Unique Student Identifier) required (USI.gov.au).

Outdoor Adventure Skills requirements

There is a compact book and introduction here, and progressively the lower stages are being loaded onto this website.

Further information/training:

  • Bushwalking skills (includes first aid skills)

  • Scout Central e-learning. Log on to Scout Central, look for e-learning and online electives. Log in details are your member number and date of birth in six digit format, or use the "forgot password" link that will use your primary email address when you first joined scouts.

  • Cycle skills

  • Canoe skills

Gear lists

  • These are our standard gear lists, often with explanation - the camp organisers may provide a custom list specific for each camp.

  • From 2021, Scouts are asked to purchase/provide from home:

  • For Scout camps (age 11+): cloth plate “dilly” bag – you are likely to have the other required camp items at home.

  • For camps, when age 12, each Scout is encouraged to own and care for their own tent, such as this 3 person Coleman 3CV, that we have used in SJW Scouts since 2010. SJW Scouts has some tents to borrow. Large tents are not suitable as too difficult for Scouts to erect or too bulky to transport.

  • A hike tent is an alternative, being lighter but requiring more care. See our bushwalking gear recommendations for tents, sleeping bag and mat, and boots/shoes/clothes in this page.
