Gear Decision Time

Now is a good time to:

  • Make decision on whether to hire gear as cheaper option rather than transporting
  • Registration should be completed for scouts, leaders
  • Publish the estimated fee and transport costs

This list below is not an exhaustive list but it does cover the major items of equipment that need to be considered when planning the campsite.

Start with the Site design
Pull up your last Group Jamboree site plan. For the 22nd Jamboree the site size will be approx. the same as the previous one, around 700 sqm. At this stage you may not know the shape of your site. The following topics will affect the design:

  • The size, type and number of tents used for the Patrols and adults, include the female/male split.
  • If using a container for transporting gear, where on the site will you put it and which way will the doors open?
  • What are you using for the dining shelter? A marquee or a large tent?

Plan for 1m spacing between sleeping tents, 1.5m from site Boundary. Tents must be 3m away from Marquees, store or kitchen tents. This will be confirmed less than 12 months out from the start of the Jamboree.
