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:
