Event Description

It's been 50 years since the moon landings so Joey Scout are celebrating with our inaugural ACT Hoporee at Camp Cottermouth with a camping weekend full of space exploration, fun and adventure. We will be going to Launchpad, building rockets at Joey Jet Propulsion Laboratory, learning about Life in Zero-G, building a Moon Base, exploring Mars with rovers and investigating Life on Alien Worlds.

Joey Scouts Camping

Joey Scouts will be camping in tents. They have the option to sleep in a ‘patrol tent’, with other Joeys from their mob, or in a smaller tent with a parent. Each mob will have a specified camp site and all Joeys will camp on their site, regardless of whether they’re in a patrol tent or with a parent.


Online Bookings will OPEN at the end of June and CLOSE on August 8th.

Fees for the event includes camping, food, the cost for all activities, a camp polo shirt and badge.

  • $85 for Joey Scouts
  • $65 for weekend helpers
  • $35 for day helpers

Payments can be in full at the time of booking or in three instalments.

Additional shirts and badges are also available.

 Any Questions? Ask your Joey Leader.

Helpers Wanted

We would love some helpers! We will need assistance with setting up, and packing down Mob campsites, cooking meals and on activities bases. These jobs are suitable for Scouts, Venturers, Rovers and adult helpers and leaders who can incorporate this into service activities, a Milestone Lead or Assist, or a Special Interest Area badge.

Every person over the age of 16 who attends will need to have a Working With Vulnerable People (WWVP) card. All attendees will also be wearing their event polo shirt for identification.

Youth Members should talk to their troop councils and Hoporee organisers about incorporating this into a Milestone Lead or Assist, or a Special Interest Area badge. Some Outdoor Adventure Skills components may also be signed off over the course of the weekend.
