This year the Scout and Explorer Summer Camp will be the Essex International Jamboree, based just outside Chelmsford.
The format is very different from our normal camps and we will be camping alongside up to 10,000 Scouts and Guides from across Britain and around the world. The emphasis is on activities, and on this occasion the leaders will do all the cooking while the Scouts go off and enjoy themselves doing various activities. These activities are on the purpose-built site and run by trained staff who are generally leaders from other groups all over the country. There is much more of a festival atmosphere to the camp with activities laid on every evening as well as during the day.
Full details will be issued nearer the time.
A balance of approx £150-£175 will also be required (final amount will depend on fundraising activities.
