Use this calendar to help plan your Jamboree journey. Keep updated with pages from Time to Plan and events held by the Jamboree Management Team.
Allow 18 at least months – The timeline for preparing to go to a Jamboree needs to be about 18 months. The prime driver is the fundraising and 12 months or less is simply not enough time to allow the project to proceed with minimal stress for the team involved.
Everyone gets a copy – Get parents and leaders, including the Patrol Leaders, involved in creating the timeline. The better they understand it and take ownership of it, the more committed they will be to the project.

By now you should be able to pass on final costs to parents so everyone can start to make the final push towards Jamboree.
By now you should be able to:
- Make full and final payments to Jamboree
- Start organising and locating the gear
- Publish and issue the Troop handbook
- Hold your final pre-Jamboree camp over a weekend
Don’t forget the Time to Plan document has more details on gear and consumables you will need.
Just one month to go! By now there is already members of the Jamboree Management Team on site preparing everything for your arrival. Sites have to be marked out, marquees need to go up, equipment has to arrive and be stored, structures have to be built, it’s nothing but activity all the way until Scouts arrive.
Before the group separates for the holidays it’s good to have done these:
- Hand out badges, uniform items etc.
- Purchase consumables (non-food).
- Pack the container (if any) and despatch it.
