THE JAMBOREE EXPERIENCE
A Jamboree is a unique experience for both youth and adults alike. It is an event remembered for a lifetime and is often considered the ultimate Scouting experience.
The Jamboree is one of the greatest examples of Scouting’s ability to encourage and promote teamwork, participation, fun, understanding and new challenges. Nothing else we do in Scouting showcases our principles and method better than a Jamboree.
It is via a Jamboree that our youth extend their knowledge of themselves through involvement in an extensive range of challenging activities. Leaders who attend a Jamboree understand that their primary responsibility is looking after the well-being of our youth members.
Experience shows that lifelong friendships develop amongst Scouts and Leaders as a result of attending Jamborees and whilst it is impossible to fully explain why it occurs, it is this that makes a Jamboree truly the ultimate Scouting event.
AJ2022 will run from Monday January 3 until Thursday January 13 2022.
Members of the Victorian Contingent will depart on buses on Sunday January 2 and move in to their Jamboree Troop sites the same day.
The Contingent will depart the Jamboree site early on Friday January 14 and arrive at the ‘drop-off points’ that day, tired but happy.
