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.
