SPONSORED BY: Rotary Club of Launceston
This zone is designed to allow all the great clubs that are out there get together and tell parents that you exist and how you operate. We would love for clubs to come along and demonstrate some of the activities you run that would be great fun for kids to try. We imagine clubs such as scouts, guides, rural youth, kid’s clubs, and cadets would be perfect for this zone.
ACTIVITIES YOU'LL FIND IN THE CLUB ZONE:

Scouting offers fun and challenging opportunities to grow through adventure activities and is ideal for young people aged 6 to 25. Groups are divided into five age sections: Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers. Scouts can take part in an extraordinary variety of outdoor activities, from ‘traditional Scouting skills’ such as camping and bushcraft, through to more extreme challenges such as abseiling, overnight hiking, rafting, canoeing, snow activities, rock climbing, sailing… even flying! Scouting encourages leadership development, community service, environmental projects and offers the opportunity to be involved large-scale events such as National and International events as well as service projects in developing countries.
Scouts Tasmania are displaying one of their Patrol Boats and have several hands-on displays and activities which are constructed and run by Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and leaders.
