Leave of Absence
Victorian Youth Member - Temporary Leave of Absence from aj 2019
Temporary leave for Scouts and Venturers attending the Jamboree is not encouraged however we appreciate that there are sometimes circumstances when this is appropriate. Due to the Jamboree program scouts who leave the site on a temporary basis may jeopardise their opportunity to earn the Jamboree Award. Youth members will not be granted overnight leave. Apart from Troop activities, NO Youth Member will be permitted to leave the Jamboree site without prior written permission from their parents/guardians on the approved form.

Important Message about Stretchers
A gentle reminder to Scouts and parents that all the ‘stuff’ that Scouts take with them to the Jamboree MUST fit inside their 100 litre (approx) roller bag and day pack.
As indicated in the gear list stretchers should NOT be taken unless they fit inside their gear bag. If the Jamboree Troop Leader requests that Scouts do not bring stretchers, this is about accommodating everyone in a tent and 6 – 8 stretchers do not fit comfortably with gear in an auto tent.
