The 34th Scottish International Patrol Jamborette held at Blair Castle, Blair Atholl, Perthshire, Scotland.
Overseas Contingents arriving at camp on Tuesday 22nd July. All scouts departed on Friday 1st August and all Staff leaving on Saturday 2nd August. The Scottish Scouts and staff are offering home hospitality after the camp up to Wednesday 6th August.
A Patrol consists of not more than 6 Scouts, including the Patrol Leader. The Scouts can be composed of Scouts from a single Troop, or from several troops. Patrols which include female Scouts are welcome and will be fully integrated into the Camp. An Association may send more than one Patrol. In this case Patrols may form a national contingent or they may travel independently. Each International Patrol will camp with a Scottish Patrol. A Scottish and an overseas patrol operated as one unit. The Scottish Patrol will provide tents and cooking equipment for both patrols. Cooking is done in patrols over wood fires. Dining shelters will be constructed in each patrol site with pioneering timber.
The camp is only open to Scouts 14 years of age or over on 21st July 2014 and under 18 years of age on 1st August 2014. No Scouts out with this range will be accepted for this camp.
Camp Fee 2012
The Camp Fee is set as GBP 250 + Air Fare and Misc Costs.
The Fee includes all food, activities, camp badge and neckerchief. For Scouts from out with Scotland it also covers additional travel costs within Scotland to and from a central meeting point, overnight stays at Scout halls on arrival and before final departure as required to meet your individual needs.
Any additional costs for participation in Home Hospitality will be covered by the overseas camp fees.
Travel Costs for Overseas Scouts
Transport will be provided to the Jamborette from Edinburgh or Glasgow (or Aberdeen for Norwegian or Swedish Scouts only) on Tuesday 18th July after an optional overnight stay in a scout hall.
After the Jamborette, Scouts from Overseas are offered hospitality for up to 5 days in the homes of Scottish Scouts. Exact dates are arranged to suit travel arrangements.
There are a large number of Scottish Staff supporting the event.
The number of overseas adult leaders with each patrol should be limited to the minimum number necessary to supervise the travel. Overseas Leaders will not camp with their Patrols, but will be integrated into the camp staff. Overseas leaders will be expected to work as part of the overall staff team. There is a free staff "cafe" available to chill out with friends after work.
Check out the range of activities on this website. It shows all the activities on offer at the 2010 camp and scouts attending had therefore an idea of their activity choices BEFORE even arriving at camp. This Activity page will be updated for 2012 near the camp date.
