The Essex International Jamboree is one of the biggest jamborees in the UK, we bring together 10,000 Guides and Scouts from all over the world to camp together for a week of fun, discovery and adventure, embracing the spirit of Scouting and Girlguiding.
With over 100 different activities in 30 zones, participants have the unique opportunity to try something new, create lasting memories and make international friendships. In the evening the Jamboree becomes even more vibrant with entertainment including a dance tent, live acts, food outlets and even a cinema!
