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.
For Groups doing Fundraising, start doing so now.
If the approximate cost of a Scout attending Jamboree is $1500, then it’s only around $25 per week that needs to be raised from now until December!
The Time to Plan document has some helpful hints. Your local Zone team may also be able to assist with fundraising ideas or opportunities.
Zone Scout Leaders join the JLT for another Zoom meeting. Details to come via email.
