      Equipment & Activity Store – A Home Away From Home

      2024 is shaping up to be a big year for Scouts Queensland with lots of major events culminating in the hosting of the 26th Australian Jamboree in January 2025.

      The Branch Equipment & Activity Store provides pivotal support to all of the major events and the Jamboree, as well as many other smaller events and activities through the provision of equipment hire.

      A very small team of volunteers support the store working on-site at Baden-Powell Park Campsite every Thursday. This team upkeep, sort, repair, replace and generally volunteer many hours of work each year to ensure that Scouts Queensland has equipment available to support its activities.

      We are on the hunt for new volunteers to help out in this very busy year for the store. If you can volunteer a few hours a month, one day a week or one day a month, we would welcome your contribution! Whilst an induction would need to be done with the current team, you can offer to volunteer on other days if Thursdays do not suit you.

      For more information about the Branch Equipment & Activity Store please email Branch Commissioner Trevor Taylor at bc.store@scoutsqld.com.au and he will gladly provide you with more information.
