Do we need a nights away permit?

No. The Jamboree Camp Director nights away permit will cover any groups attending who do not have their own permit – so this is a great opportunity to arrange a camp for your section if you wouldn’t normally get to go away! However, please bear in mind that because of this the Jamboree is not suitable for nights away assessments.

 

Do we need to provide catering?

The catering is for staff only. Participants and leaders will need to bring food and can use local supermarkets.

Will we be able to drive to our site to unload

Vehicles will be not be allowed onto all sites (some maybe accessible) to unload kit and load up at the end. Vehicles will have to packed in the car parks. We will provide trolleys and small off road gators to tow trailers where required, please do not ask us to allow you to drive across the camping area. 

Will there be a badge?

Yes!

What about a necker?

You will be getting your very own camp necker.

 

Will the Jamboree be safe?

There is a dedicated Security Team which will provide 24 hour security on site. There will also be dedicated first aiders (as well as most Scout Leaders being first aid qualified). If anyone would like to see the folders and files full or risk assessments please do get in touch!!

Traffic management will be in place and there will be a parking management team in place.

 

Is the Jamboree just for Dorset Scouts?

Not at all! The Jamboree to be an International Jamboree attracting participants from around the world. There will also be an open day for those who fall outside the core age range.

 

How can we contact the Jamboree site during the event?

During the event, urgent contact with the site should be via Event Control.

For less urgent enquiries please email bookings@jij.org.uk

 

Can we bring 2-way Radios to this event?

Two way radios are a useful tool for running activities and subcamps. However, it is important that their use on site is carefully co-ordinated.

The Scout Association’s Licensed Channels will all be in use over the weekend by the event team, and we therefore ask that you do not bring radios to use those channels.

If you have your own license to use different channels, then this may be possible but please check with the communications team first.

If you would like to bring PMR446 “walkie talkies” (ie the sort you can buy in Argos/Maplin and use without a license), again please check with the event team first as we will need to allocate you a channel. Generally channels will be only allocated to subcamps or activity providers and not to individual groups.

Will participant kit lists be sent out shortly?

Yes - We are working on this and will be out with your welcome pack shortly.

Please can you confirm the Jamboree site address:

Jurassic International Jamboree, Kingston Maurward College, Dorchester, Dorset, DT2 8PY.

Will we be allowed to have food deliveries to the site entrance?

Yes - we will have a section where food deliveries can be dropped, however you are responsible for your own food and the JIJ team will not supervise drop off of food,  just the vehicle doing this for you.

How big a space will be allocated for camping for each group?

In the process of being calculated now, but generally you should have enough room for a mess tent and sleeping tents as well as maintaining a 5m fire break from any cook tent to sleeping accommodation.

Will we get details for the weeks activities and what days we will be doing what?

Full Programme will be published shortly

Will there be showers on site?

Yes - we have three stand alone shower blocks coming in that are a shared facility for all persons on site, there are also facilities for those who have restricted mobility for both showers and toilets.

We will have dedicated containers on site for slops only to be disposed of, all other waste will be disposed of in waste containers on the site.
