Youth Forums

State Youth Forum

The State Youth Forum is conducted every year in August and draws on scouts from around the state to come together to discuss issues affecting the scout section at a local through to state level. The scouts often also put up ideas for new badges, events and policies. Some of these things over the years have been things like where the scout craft badge and cords should be worn, an easier way to find camp sites, the miniature badges over the scouts left hand pockets and the state wide camp BayJam which over 600 Scouts and Leaders attended in January 2015, and over 1200 Scouts and Leaders attended in January 2018. 2021 will be even bigger – thanks to the input and feedback from our youth forums.

In 2020 the State Youth Forum will be run on 14th-16th August at Eumerella, Anglesea.

Information for the 2020 State Youth Forum will be distributed to those elected to attend by their Region Youth Forums.
