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.

Now’s the time to be working together as a Troop. Organise patrols and patrol leaders, get out and have a camp (or several) together. You can design your uniforms and badges at camp, or have them made ready to show everyone. Plan your kitchen setup, make some camp gadgets and get excited for Jamboree!
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.
