What fundraising do you suggest?

Personal savings and group fundraising are the two primary avenues.

Individually, Scouts can save by various means, like doing odd jobs or selling homemade goods. Group fundraising activities might include community events or sales.

The key is diversifying your fundraising sources. You can raise with Monster Raffle or collecting cans as part of the new Container Deposit Scheme.

More information about fundraising and grants can be found here.

What is the refund policy?

If after making an application, you are unable to attend the Jamboree, you must advise the Victorian Contingent in writing as soon as possible to claim a refund.

  • Claimed before 30th June 2024, the amount paid will be fully refunded.
  • Claimed after 1st July 2024 to 30th September 2024, the amount paid will be refunded less $250.
  • Claimed on or after 1st October 2024, no refund made except in exceptional circumstances, at the sole discretion of the Contingent Leader.

For the avoidance of doubt, any Government requirement placed upon the applicant to attend the Event, which is not met by the applicant, is considered to be a withdrawal for personal reasons, and no refund will be made. Reasonableness of any Government requirement is not a matter for either Scouts Victoria or Scouts Australia to consider.

Do I need spending money at the Jamboree?

The Jamboree provides all essentials, including meals, activities, and transport. However, many Scouts choose to buy additional snacks, gifts, or souvenirs. The suggested daily spending based on AJ2019 advice is $10. Secure storage options will be available for valuables and money.
