Scholarship: Azerbaijan Wonderland Scout Camp 2014

The Scout Association of Australia, in conjunction with the Asia-Pacific Scout Region is offering one scholarship to an 18+ member to attend the 2014 Azerbaijan Wonderland Scout Camp in Lerik, Azerbaijan as a member of the International Service Team.

This scholarship covers 50% of the economy airfare Australia – Azerbaijan, and event cost PLUS an additional EUR600 subsidy from the Asia-Pacific Region towards these costs.

Activities on the camp include pioneering, water activities, as well as hiking to a medieval village. Lerik is in southern Azerbaijan, located in the Talysh mountains close to the Iranian border.

More information about the event is available by contacting the Assistant International Commissioner, Andrew Cooper on int.assistantcomm@scouts.com.au.

  • 18+ member of Scouts Australia.
  • An outstanding ambassador of Scouts Australia.
  • Representative of a wide range of Scouting experiences.
