The Jamboree Patrol (JP) is an integral part of the organisation for the 21st New Zealand Scout Jamboree. Building on the success of the Jamboree Patrols at previous New Zealand Jamborees this Jamboree will be the most involved yet and ensure that NZJ21 is truly a Jamboree by Scouts for Scouts. The JP consists of 13 scout and venture aged youth who are active participants in Scouting in the Nelson and Marlborough regions. This JP features a diverse range of individuals and for the first time has representatives from Air, Sea and Land Scouts. They are ably led by the Assistant Youth Services Directors, Nic Clemett and Cody Sage.

Prior to the Jamboree the JP will be working closely with the Jamboree management team to ensure a fun filled and action packed 10 days come December 2016. The JP is directly involved in determining the Jamboree menu and providing feedback and signing off on particular aspects of the Jamboree programme including activities, opening and closing ceremonies and most importantly the Jamboree Patrol Day.

Once at Jamboree the JP take part in all the activities with their patrols during day and at night they lead the patrol leaders council. By running these meetings they are able to get direct feedback from the senior scouts about how they feel Jamboree is going. The JP is then responsible for ensuring that this youth perspective is adequately conveyed to the Jamboree Management Team.

The Jamboree Patrol is absolutely amped about going to the 21st New Zealand Scout Jamboree and can’t wait to see you there. Read on to meet the members of the Jamboree Patrol….

I am 13 years old and I have 3 sisters and a brother. I have been in scouts for two years. People often make that mistake that I’m nice and quiet but sometimes I can be really fun wild and crazy. I am looking forward the Jamboree 2017. It’s going to be awesome!!

I enjoy playing sports such as running and road cycling. I prefer individual sports although I enjoy both. I chose to come to Jamboree because I went to regatta which was really cool and all the people there told me Jamboree was as well. I joined the Jamboree Patrol because I enjoy leading and it was a great opportunity to be involved in organising a Jamboree!

Amelia Law
My name is Amelia (Allie) Rose Law from Wakefield, Nelson. I am in year nine and attend Garin College. For a sport I play football for the 1st XI school team as a goalie and defence. I first started in Scouting as a Pippin when I was six years old. When I reached Guides, I decided to give Scouts a try instead. I have been a Scout for four years now and follow in a family of Scouting. I have one younger brother who is a Scout in the same troop as myself.  My father is the Wakefield Group Leader, and mum is the Wakefield Pippin and Brownie Leader, who is soon to be a warranted Kea leader. Nana was a Kea Leader for many years and is still involved with the Baden­ Powell Guild.

I enjoy the challenge of being a Scout and the feeling of belonging it gives me. With a personality that does not sit still or stay quiet for long, I am not afraid of taking on leadership. 
Attending the 2012 - 2013 Feilding Jamboree, experiencing the greatest ten days of full on activities and socialising, I thought was hard to top.
Being a part of the Jamboree Patrol is an awesome opportunity and I can’t wait to see the end result. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and growing in my role within the Jamboree Patrol.
