What is a Jamboree?
The Australian Jamboree (AJ) is a camp which is held every four years by Scouts Australia. The Jamboree is traditionally held in early January and typically runs for ten nights. Each Scouting Branch (State) is the effective host of the Australian Jamboree and takes responsibility for its management. Jamboree activities are a mixture of on-site and off-site activities that seek to challenge the participants and provide a life changing learning experience for Scouts.
The Purpose of a Jamboree is…
to provide young people with an active program which encourages participation and elements of self-directed learning and includes activities that stimulate their physical, intellectual, emotional, social, character and spiritual development singularly and collectively leading to character development; thus assisting the young person to develop the attributes of good character as determined by the Scout Promise and Law.
It should be the culmination of all they have learnt in Scouting.
