sweden jamboree 2007, same campsite for 2011

eye of sweden for simply scouting 2011

scout leader, gear up for next world jamboree as IST

jamboree from the eyes of a leader part 2

The scout leader should BELIEVE in the ideas of the jamboree...he/she should BELIEVE that a World Scout Jamboree holds plenty of educational and experiential lessons for the scouts which is beneficial for the growth of the scout in terms of training ?

What does this mean ?

In simple words, you believe that for the amount of money the scout is going to pay, its more than worth terms of education and experience lah!

There are some things scout training can only take so much...i.e. badgework etc etc. Scouts may get bored or even not motivated enough to do the logs and finish tests...

But throw in a jamboree (any jamboree lah..but better if WSJ), and the Scout gets a breath of fresh air and gives new meaning to scouting.

The WSJ widens the scout’s horizons...rather than he/she views scouting on troop/district/state level with usual activities....

Let the scout experience INTERNATIONAL experience. Different cultures. Different activities. A WSJ is a place where a scout is free to mingle with other scouts without fear of prejudice or discrimination.

(tips by FOARGECAP AT hotmail DOT com @2008. DIS. PL4)

jamboree from the eyes of a leader part 1

To successfully promote the 2011WSJ, scout leaders need to take proactive action to promote to their own respective troop scout boys. No amount of publicity or promotion from the national contingent or state/district will be as good as the boys’ own scoutmaster telling them about the 2011WSJ.

What factors make it easier to get boys motivated to go 2011WSJ and work towards it ?

The Scout leader:

a. Went to a WSJ before as a boy

b. Went to a WSJ before as a leader

c. Went to a national jamboree before

d. Has positive experiences from any of the above.

What might be a problem is, not all scout leaders have the chance to do go to a WSJ when they were younger or even go to a WSJ before ! Why ?

a. Not enough publicity/promotion reach them for previous world jamboree

b. Even if enough promotion motivate them, they are not guided on how to plan and go (finances are the most important factor here)

So....the key thing is to get the scout leader motivated about the jamboree! Not necessary to go lah. The scout leader may have commitments with :

a. Work

b. Family

when u believe in world scout jamboree 2011

again.... why go jamborees part 3

Besides, its nice to have the badges to show off to share with other scouts of the world your achievement.

Stay motivated

Yes, the jamboree is a long time from now 3 years ?
But the main challenge is FINANCES.

Its not going to be easy to stay motivated, but if and when you do, it will come easier.

You will have parents/friends/relatives who MAY discourage you...
“14 days = RM 8000! Where got worth it..”
“Go Malaysian jamboree enough laa...”

So..the key thing is always ask yourself
(this of course is a topic for a different discussion)

When you found that answer, remind yourself everyday.

Tips: Put up posters of the 2011 WSJ (as far as we know, promotional material is just out fresh from oven).. visual reminders on your wall

Talk to people who have been to the WSJ before. Well, if they give you bad impressions...chances are..the problem might be them. 95% of scouts who have been to the WSJ described it as a life changing experience. For the better, of course.

If can, ask them to show you their WSJ photos or badges or souvenirs.

Search and read of WSJ history (this may be boring to some people)... Like here:

Be the best scout you can be. This doesn’t need further description.

Foragecap is a 2 times world jamboree participant, for more information, u can direct email to foragecap AT hotmail DOT com

(tips by FORAGECAP @2008. DIS, PL4)

again.... why go jamborees part 2


A lot of the activities in a WSJ are really challenging. Its a good idea to finish up your scout badges to the highest level (King Scout of course).


Badgework teaches you character and skill.
Skills especially needed to function in a jamboree.

When a scout is going a jamboree, he/she is expected to having a good standard of skill i.e. he/she is capable of setting up a stable tent (that doesn’t collapse or leak rain), cook good delicious meals (decent isn’t good enough..thats why we have TUKANG MASAK tests), and even some basic pioneering.

And chances are, the Malaysian Contingent will set a standard i.e. Seniro Scout should complete 5 seniro badges before going to jamboree... please don’t chase badges ONLY to go jofr jamboree i.e. in 2011, you are form 5, then only you start doing JAYADIRI and so on so forth...

(tips by FORAGECAP @2008. DIS, PL4)

again.... why go jamborees part 1

Do you know why you want to go to the World Scout Jamboree ?

Ok, let’s say you know all the details i.e. the date, the place etc etc
The question is what should you do ... NOW


Jamboree is not cheap. The Jamboree (camp) fee for last World Scout Jamboree was nearly RM 4000. Add to this your airflight (referring to last year’s WSJ flight from Malaysia-UK) is around RM 4000 also.

this time, its in Sweden. And no direct flight there.

Let’s put the estimate to be RM 8000 for now. (will most probably be more)

We haven’t included pocket money for souvenirs. Don’t worry you won’t starve there as food is provided (included in your jamboree fee)

Save UP!

How to save up ? There’s some good tips by a scout leader here at this site :

Its a start. So Start now.

world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 7

Where is the Jamboree?
The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will take place on the fields of Rinkaby, outside the town of Kristianstad in the very south of Sweden. The closest major town with a large international airport is Copenhagen in Denmark. Rinkaby is only one and a half hours by coach or train from Kastrup airport.

The Jamboree has three entry points:
Copenhagen airport, Kastrup, Denmark
Kristianstad railroad station
The onsite Jamboree coachstation

The Jamboree organisers will offer transport from any of the above entry points to the Jamboree site.

Jamboree site
We have a beautiful Jamboree site with natural surroundings and excellent facilities. The site has already been tested twice for camps with over 20 000 participants. Just imagine the 22nd World Scout Jamboree here…

world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 6

Jamboree fee
Registration fees for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree are tiered in a system based on the Gross National Income (GNI) per capita of each country(the same criteria as for membership fees to WOSM). There are four levels of registration fee, as follows:

Category A 1625 SEK *
Category B 3250 SEK *
Category C 4875 SEK *
Category D 6500 SEK *
* All fees are charged in Swedish Kroner (SEK)

National Scout Organisations can confirm their category with the Jamboree Office.

The Jamboree fee for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree applies for participants, unit leaders, members of the Contingent Management Team and International Service Team.

Information about how to pay and the payment schedules will be distributed in a later Bulletin.

Operation One World
Scouts from every country in the world should have the chance to come to the 22nd World Scout Jamboree. To help Scouts who have economic difficulties to participate in the Jamboree, a solidarity fund has been established, called Operation One World. Operation One World will ensure that all fund recipients have everything they need to fully participate in the event.

Fundraising for Operation One World has already begun, and several large target donors have been identified. National Scout Organisations are also essential to the success of the Operation. Contributions to Operation One World can be through direct financial donations or through helping participants from a specific part of the world. Contingents are encouraged to think about how they can expand any existing partnerships they have to include participation at the Jamboree.

Home Hospitality
The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will offer a Home Hospitality concept (family or Scout-house stay) in Sweden, Norway, Denmark or Finland. It will be possible for Contingents to apply for 3-4 days Home Hospitality before or after the Jamboree. A separate fee will apply to participants in the Home Hospitality programme. Details will be presented later.

Following the demand for our Simply Scouting garments at the 21st World Scout Jamboree in the UK, we have prepared our first collection of Jamboree profile products. From July 2008 it is possible to buy these items from our web shop. The collection includes t-shirts, sweaters, softshell jackets, daypacks, badges and many other items. The outdoor garments are all manufactured by Haglöfs, a quality Swedish outdoor clothing brand.

The webshop can be found at:

world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 5

Participants and unit leaders
Participants at 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. As has been the case for previous World Scout Jamborees, the Scout unit size is 36 young people and 4 adult leaders. The unit should be organised into 4 patrols of 9 young people.

If your Contingent does not have enough patrols to form a complete unit, you will be joined with patrols from other countries to form a unit. Each patrol in a combined unit must provide one adult leader.

International Service Team
An estimated 8 000 staff are needed to run the Jamboree, and these will come from countries all around the world. Being a staff member is an exciting opportunity where you can make a contribution to the young people of the world today.

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). Members of the IST should be able to speak English and/or French and be prepared to take on any task needed to create the Jamboree. IST must arrive on site 25 July 2011 and can leave 8 August 2011.

Jamboree Planning Team
Those involved with planning and preparing for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree are included in the Jamboree Planning Team. The Jamboree Planning Team is an international team and information on how to apply will be distributed later. All members of the Jamboree Planning Team must be active Scouts and have the approval of their National Scout Organisations.

Pre-registration for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree is already possible. This is an important planning tool for the Jamboree Executive Team as it helps us to estimate the likely size of the Jamboree at an early stage. Pre-registration does not guarantee a Contingent places, nor does it commit you to a Contingent size.
Please fill in the form found in Appendix II: Pre-registration Form.

Appointment of Head of Contingent
Every National Contingent to the World Scout Jamboree must have a leader who is responsible for the Contingent. The Head of Contingent is appointed by the National Scout Organisation and is the contact person for the Jamboree Office.

It is important for us to make contact with Heads of Contingents as soon as possible. Please fill in the Appointment of Head of Contingent Form, found in Appendix I, and send it back to the Jamboree Office.

world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 4

All Scouts participating in the 22nd World Scout Jamboree must be registered members of a National Scout Organisation that is recognised by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM). If your country has several Associations, you will need to come together in one Contingent.

Members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) may take part in the 22nd World Scout Jamboree under the conditions agreed between WOSM and WAGGGS as follows:
For Scout and Guide National Organisations (those that are members of both WOSM and WAGGGS – “SAGNOs”), invitations to the World Scout Jamborees are addressed not only to WOSM registered members but also to those registered with WAGGGS.

Youth and adults of National Girl Guide/Girl Scout Organisations (members of WAGGGS only) may attend the event with the agreement of the WOSM organisation in their country. Girl Guides/Girl Scouts attending must join the Contingent from the respective National Scout Organisation.

Participation from a single National Scout Organisation must not exceed 10% of the total expected number of participants agreed by the World Scout Committee. For the 22nd World Scout Jamboree, Contingents may not exceed 4000, including youth participants, unit leaders, IST members and Contingent Management Teams (CMT)

Contingent Management Teams
Each National Contingent has the possibility of bringing a support team of adult leaders – a Contingent Management Team (CMT). Contingent Management Teams will camp and eat in the Adult Town at the 22nd World Scout Jamboree.

Each Contingent is limited in the number of adults they may bring on their Contingent Management Team, depending on the number of young people in the Contingent.

world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 3

The Jamboree Programme

The Jamboree programme encompasses everything at the World Scout Jamboree.
The Scouts will experience the 22nd World Scout Jamboree through five areas:
subcamp life, module activities, common areas, arena events and Camp in Camp.

Subcamp Life
Subcamps are the homes of the Scouts at the Jamboree. This is where most of the everyday camp life takes place; sleeping, cooking, cleaning etc. At the World Scout Jamboree, Scouts will have the tools to create their own home and plenty of time for subcamp life. The close environment of a subcamp makes it easier to get to know new friends from other countries and to build genuine understanding of each other. At the 22nd World Scout Jamboree all subcamps will have their own place to “hang around” with a small café, campfire circle, unscheduled activities, etc. Subcamp life makes it possible for each Scout to influence and create his or her own Jamboree experience.

Module Activities
The module activities aim to give the Scouts knowledge and tools relevant to the needs of young people in the world today. Here, National Scout Organisations, non-governmental organisations and others gather their expertise to make fun, educational and challenging activities.

The module activities will include programme focusing on sharing of cultures, the environment,
sustainable development, social engagement, global development issues, respect for oneself and for others, health, community development, peace and much more. The activities will use the patrol as an important entity and aim at being very active.

Common Areas
Everything outside the subcamps and scheduled activity areas are Common Areas; common to share for everyone at the Jamboree. Common Areas are designed to facilitate meetings and there will be, for example, cafés, unscheduled activities, exhibitions and also specific space for spiritual programme and religious practise.

Arena Events
At the 22nd World Scout Jamboree there will be three big arena events: the Opening Ceremony, a major event in the middle of the Jamboree, and the Closing Ceremony. These are events where the audience members are not merely spectators but play an important interactive part.

Camp in Camp
For a few days, 100-200 Scouts will take part in a smaller camp away from the main camp area. This “Camp in Camp” will give each and every one of the participating Scouts a chance to experience nature and small scale camping, Swedish style. This will be an opportunity for getting to know a smaller group of new friends.

world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 2

Within the idea of Simply Scouting, there are three key concepts for the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden: meetings, nature and solidarity.

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree is organised to encourage meetings: meetings across cultures, characters, interests, religions, countries, continents and more. Everything at the Jamboree will take this into consideration; from module activities to subcamp life, from small camp fires to huge arena events. As well as the programme, the actual Jamboree site will be designed to create meeting places and the Jamboree schedule will include plenty of time for spontaneous meetings.

A World Scout Jamboree in Sweden means being close to nature. Outdoor life is very accessible in Sweden and it is an important part of Swedish culture. For Swedish Scouting, the challenge of living outdoors with nature is also a tool in the Scout method. Closeness to nature also reveals the vulnerability of our environment. Wherever possible across the Jamboree, we will demonstrate sustainable environmental practice. The programme will especially focus on giving young people tools to take action for the environment.

Solidarity means being a part of the global Scout Movement. At the Jamboree, we all share values and common goals: the development of young people for life.

Solidarity means recognising connections between peoples and how dependent we are on each other. The Jamboree will emphasise the common responsibility we have to our world and to each other.

Solidarity encompasses how we treat other people, and includes respect, equal rights and peace. At the World Scout Jamboree, all are equal, independent of any personal characteristics or background. These issues will also be explored in many of the Jamboree activities.

world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 1

Simply Scouting

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree Sweden 2011 is Simply Scouting. Scouting in all its variety, from all across the world. Nothing more, nothing less.

The World Scout Jamboree mirrors the Scout world. All the diversity and knowledge from different Scout cultures around the world is gathered in one place. The event is inspiring and contributes to the development of the Scout movement.

Scouting delivers the answers to the needs of young people and this Jamboree is simply scouting. The 22nd World Scout Jamboree offers a modern programme that lives up to the challenges young people meet in today’s society. Scouts will leave with new tools to take action in their local and wider community.

The Scout method is a fundamental element of Simply Scouting. The Scout method and our common Scout values are the building stones for everything we do. We work in small groups, we trust young people to create their own experiences and learn from those experiences and we provide value-based leadership that is attentive and supportive.

All parts of the Jamboree experience are Simply Scouting and all are equally important. The 22nd World Scout Jamboree is a camp where spontaneous meetings are as valuable as the scheduled activities. Everyday elements of camp life - building, cooking and singing at a camp fire - all challenge Scouts to develop new skills and to meet, connect and work towards international understanding.

What is a bulletin?

The purpose of the World Scout Jamboree Bulletins is to provide National Scout Organisations with all the information they need, at the right time, to help prepare for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree. We have planned Bulletins once or twice a year throughout the lead-up to the Jamboree.

The Bulletins will be sent out through ScoutPak and our expectation is that you will then distribute the information to your members. Where Heads of Contingents have been appointed, we will also send the Bulletins directly to them.

In addition to the Bulletins there are several other ways to find information, the website being the main one.

When the participants leave the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden they will be able to say:
  • I’ve had the best two weeks of my l ife!
  • I’m proud to be me and to be a Scout
  • I ’ve learnt so much about people and
  • cultures from all over the world
  • I want to make a difference in the world
  • today and I feel ready to take action
