All participants will be camping in self-sufficent unit campsites spaced around the park. Camp sites will be clustered by distrct and section and will allocated by Jamborette HQ ahead of the event. Units should not assume that they will be camping in the same locations as previous years. 

Catering for this event is organsied within the Unit and will be subject to additoinal fees as determined by each unit. Your unit leaders will be able to provide more information on this and the cost will be reflected in the e-permission form that is sent to your e-mail address.

Camping and Catering will be subject to stringant COVID restrictions at all times (See COVID-19 Considerations below).

Activity Bases

Each district/group/unit who wishes to run an activity base should download the attached Activity Plan and Risk Assesment forms from the documents section above. These documents must be filled out and e-mailed back to Jamborette by the closing date.  Make sure that your Risk Assessment includes items that cover how your base will run under COVID-19 restrictions (Think about things like physical distancing, wiping down equipment and surfaces between users, avoiding eating challenges etc). Remember if you get stuck, that is OK, just reach out and ask!

Each Scout section district is asked to provide 2 bases per district if leader numbers allow.

Feeling Safe at Jamborette

Everyone in Scouts, youth and adults alike have the right to feel safe and be protected from abuse. No-one is allowed to threaten you, hurt you, or touch you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe, or afraid.

A Scout is respectful, and this applies to all interactions between all participants, youth and adults at Jamborette.

You do not have to deal with abuse on your own. If you feel unsafe, threatened, or you see/hear something that causes you concern, please speak to a Leader or Rover on an activity. Your concerns will be taken seriously. The information you provide will be shared with people who can support and protect you.

If you don’t know what to do – speak to someone at Jamborette HQ.

If, for any reason, you do not feel the concerns of this nature which you raised at Jamborette have been satisfactorily dealt with, please report your concerns directly to the Child Protection Team at the NSW State Office on 02 9735 9000 or via ChildProtection@nsw.scouts.com.au or your parents.
