For four days, the Jamboree brought together 117 young men and women from 12 to 18 years of age to hike, learn survival and life skills, meet new friends, and share information between Scout groups in the country.

The programme was led by 32 Scout leaders and supplemented by CCF staff. Reinwaldt and Vera Dorgeloh handled logistics for the Jamboree. Most Scouts came from the north, and the rest came mostly from Tsumeb and Windhoek.
