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 3rd January until Thursday 13th January 2022.
