Since 2001, Scouts from all over Victoria have been participating in Survivor-Camps. The 5 day/4 night camps are based off the TV Show SURVIVOR and include a range of physical, mental and endurance type challenges.

The camp is run by James Atkinson, who has worked on both the US and Australian Survivor TV Shows. Currently James is a Challenge Producer on Australian Survivor.

In teams of 6 or 7, scouts compete in a range of challenges including Obstacle Courses, Puzzles, Canoeing, Archery, Quizzes, Food Eating, Sports, Memory, many of which put their scouting skills to the test.

Each year there is one key that opens the treasure chest at the end of the camp. Some famous Survivor winners and hosts have chosen the winning key and recorded a special message to the scouts attending that years camp.
