our story

1st City of Camberwell (Melba's Own) Scout Group is one of the oldest Scout Groups in Australia.

In 2008, along with Scouts Australia, we celebrated our 100th Birthday! And in 2018, we celebrated turning 110!

1st City also has an active Group Support Committee and a group of fantastic leaders who teach, entertain and explore the world with our youth. ​

If you are interested in joining please get in touch via email we'd love to share with you the wonderful world of Scouting.


adventure is calling

2020 was the year of hibernation, and the state of Victoria stood still! But now we’re ready for a year of excitement, friendship and adventure. Scouts are making big plans to return to the outdoors and make the most of the opportunities of the world around us. So, come join us as we unleash experiences of a lifetime. Can’t you hear adventure calling? Now is the time to be a Scout!

Scouts Victoria has suspended all membership fees!

Scouts Victoria has suspended all membership fees that are usually paid to Scouts Victoria and Scout Groups across Victoria until March 31 2021.

So that’s nine months of free Scouting! Please tell your friends. It’s a great time to check out Scouting. And it will be even better when the sunshine returns and we’re back in our halls, and outdoors again. Email the group leader, Kara for more information. gl.1stcityofcamberwell@scoutsvictoria.com.au.

We are currently running great programs at home!

We have moved to Scouting @ Home during the current world pandemic. Want to join in? Email the group leader, Kara: gl.1stcityofcamberwell@scoutsvictoria.com.au for more information
