22nd World Scout Jamboree Update
The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will take place from 27 July to 7 August 2011 in Kristianstad, Sweden with around 40,000 Scouts expected to attend from around the world.
The theme of the event is 'Simply Scouting'. Within the idea of 'Simply Scouting', there are three key concepts for the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden: meetings, nature and solidarity.
The Jamboree programme encompasses everything at the event. The Scouts will experience the 22nd World Scout Jamboree through five areas: subcamp life, module activities, common areas, arena events and Camp in Camp.
Participants in the 22nd World Scout Jamboree are young people aged between 14 and 17 years old. They must have been born between 25 July 1993 and 27 July 1997.
An estimated 8,000 staff are needed to run the Jamboree, and these will come from countries all around the world. The International Service Team (IST) will be open to active Scouts aged 18 or over at the start of the Jamboree (born on or before the 24 July 1993).
Key information on the 22nd World Scout Jamboree is now available through Bulletin 1 which has been mailed to all NSOs with a comprehensive information kit about the event. Included in the Bulletin is the Appointment of Head of Contingent Form and the Pre-Registration form. NSOs may request electronic versions of the forms by emailing email@example.com.
If you would like further information on the event, please contact your NSO who will have all of the updated information. You can also contact the Jamboree office at the above email address or visit www.worldscoutjamboree.se.
