All about Stradbroke Cup

 A Scout section camping event run over the Easter weekend at several venues around Victoria.

The Stradbroke Cup is a camping assessment with the highest achievers becoming co-holders of the Cup. However, there is an extensive program of activities available at all venues. Most Stradbroke Cup venues will allow Troops to arrive from Thursday evening. This is a perfect way for Scouts to satisfy the "four nights under canvas continuously" requirement for a Jamboree or extended camp. The whole event is an opportunity for Scout Troops and Patrols to have an enjoyable camping experience and experience the fellowship of a large combined camp. Contact: your ARC Scouts.

Stradbroke Cup is a major event  on the Scout calendar.

Follow the links below for the Assessors sheets and other resources. Note there are no Assessors Notes this year as we believe the sheets should stand alone.

Peter and Frank's Review Presentation



The Stradbroke “Challenge” Cup was offered to the Association by His Excellency, The Earl of Stradbroke, after he was farewelled, by a march-past of Scouts at the end of his term of office of Governor of Victoria in 1926.


The Cup was first competed for a Gilwell Park in 1933 when it was awarded for certain specific sections of the Cohen Shield which, at the time, was a combined camping and scoutcraft competition.


These specific activities were Ambulance, Pioneering, Signalling and Mapping/Hiking.


In 1937 the Stradbroke Cup was awarded for the ‘camping’ part of the Cohen Shield competition only, and it eventually became a separate camping award.


Until 1967 the competition was held at Gilwell Park each year, but since then Troops camping at other approved venues have also taken part.


In 1971 the competition was further extended in country areas and was held in eight different locations.


Until 1952 a straight out points system was used to select the winning troop, but after that year an ‘achievement of standard’ system was used, and troops whose camping was assessed as “A” grade became Co-holders of the Cup each year.


In 1974 it was decided to place as much emphasis as possible on the Patrol aspect of camping and to award pennants to patrols for “A”, “B”, and “C” grade standards, instead of to Troops. For a Troop to become a Co-holder of the Cup, each of its patrols (and Troop H.Q.) had to achieve the “A” grade camping standard.


In 1976 the patrol camping standards were changed, in name, from “A”, “B”, and “C” to Gold, Silver, and Bronze.


The Cup itself is held at Headquarters and is made available to “Co-holders” for display purposes when required, during the year.
