Scout Shows in Victoria
Shows can be experienced from June to October as hundreds of Victorian Scouts (and Guides) benefit from the training provided by Scout Shows - thousands of others enjoy the performances. Scout Shows are a small part of the overall youth program but offer a unique experience and training opportunities in an exciting environment. The shows develop confidence, teamwork, self-discipline, personal organisation, and lots more. They offer an outlet for the creativity of youth members and provide a tremendous public showcase for Scouting.

Anzac Day - April 25
Each year, Groups are invited to attend events for Anzac Day, both locally and within the Melbourne CBD. For information on local events, please contact your local RSL. The main Anzac Day service is held on April 25 each year regardless of the day of the week.
The Melbourne CBD service is broken down into three separate events: the Dawn Service, the Commemorative March and the Commemoration Service. Participation within the Melbourne event is optional; however those participating are required to adhere to the requirements of uniform presentation, behaviour expectations and our safety framework. There are specific roles set aside for Venturers, Rovers and Leaders to volunteer for outside of the usual banner carrying.
Free public transport is available for all Scouts, Guides and ADF Cadets on the day as long as they are in the prescribed uniform. The event starts from 6am (Dawn Service) and concludes with the commemorative Service which begins by 12.30pm.
Groups or Sections wishing to use this for the ‘Their Service, Our Heritage’ must complete the appropriate number of requirements based on the Section (two for Joeys/Cubs, three for all others). Leaders must meet the requirements of their respective Section.
In order to allow for a proper record of members attending, it is a requirement of the event that all members register via the website. This includes all members who are participating as banner carriers, service personnel or onlookers. The Scout Admin team at Federation Square will be able to assist you on the day with most questions.
Further information regarding uniform, service roles and TSOH resources can be found by contacting the team via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
JOTA/JOTI - October
Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) and Jamboree On The Internet (JOTI) is an annual event in which around 500,000 Scouts and Guides from all over the world make contact with each other by means of amateur radio and the internet.
