What is a hack?

A hack is a tech event that is designed to rapidly build, learn, and prototype digital resources like apps and websites, usually with a specific purpose.

Hacking sounds dangerous... is it legal?

Hacking is often thought of in a criminal context, such as IT nerds breaking into CIA databanks like in movies, but that's not the case at all in real life!

Hackers are people who are incredibly skilled information technology specialists who can navigate and manage IT systems. They're also really good at building things really quickly that do really cool things!

You'll get to meet some great hackers at this camp who build things for Scouts Victoria, and other organisations too!

I've already done this course - can I do it again? Is it worth it?

Absolutely! In fact, the more times you do a ScoutHack, the more you retain knowledge and experience! We actively support various development journeys, providing as much resourcing as necessary to get everyone through the course, and also providing sufficient extension options for speedy and advanced participants.
