Welfare

Who can I approach for discussions at the Jamboree?

Numerous individuals are available for conversations, whether it’s your fellow Scouts, Patrol or Assistant Patrol Leaders, Line Leaders, or even the Jamboree or Contingent welfare teams. The First Aid teams are also at your service. Someone is always around to lend an ear.

What’s AJ2025’s stance on bullying?

AJ2025 upholds Scouting’s firm stance against bullying. Any actions detracting from the harmony of others will initially be addressed by the Jamboree Unit’s Unit Council and Scout Leaders. If the situation calls for it, further measures will be taken.

What precautions are in place when I’m venturing outside the Jamboree?

Protections remain consistent, whether you’re on or off-site. All external activities will be supported by requisite first aid and welfare provisions.

Who’ll be on the lookout for me?

Patrol-based activities ensure you’re always in good company, with your fellow Scouts, Patrol Leader, and Assistant Patrol Leader watching over. Additionally, Line Leaders, Activity, and Service Leaders are present to ensure your well-being.

What if AJ2025 is my inaugural significant departure from family?

Your first major event is a monumental step!

But remember, by the time AJ2025 rolls around, you’ll be well-versed in Scouting. Your previous experiences and camping nights will come in handy. A Jamboree’s unique nature, with its magnitude and duration, offers so many activities that you might occasionally forget about home.

And there’s no shortage of friendly individuals. If ever you’re feeling blue, a plethora of Scouts, Leaders, and other friendly faces are around to cheer you up.

How should I cope if I’m overwhelmed by fatigue?

Your well-being is a priority. Should you ever feel worn out, immediately communicate with your Patrol Leader or any Leader. Perhaps a brief respite in a calm zone or an early bedtime is all you need.

What if I opt out of an activity?

The Jamboree emphasises the Patrol system. If you decide against participating in an activity, the Patrol will rally around to support you. How this support manifests depends on the activity specifics. But rest assured, no one will compel you against your wishes.

Feeling Homesick at AJ2025?

While Scouts are prepared with pre-Jamboree camping experience, homesickness can happen. Support from fellow Scouts and Leaders usually helps. In rare cases, and after all support avenues are explored, a Scout might be sent home. But this is exceptional.

What’s expected of a Patrol Leader at AJ2025?

A Patrol Leader guides their Patrol during activities and duties. They’re a pivotal part of the Unit Council, collaborating with leaders to address concerns and optimize the Jamboree experience. They can be either elected or appointed by Line Leaders, and are often Patrol Leaders in their local Scout Group. An Assistant Patrol Leader supports them.

What if I’m camera-shy?

Always assert your right to privacy. If someone tries to capture you without consent, kindly ask to be excluded or communicate your concerns to your Leaders.
