Who attends?

Participants are Explorer Scouts (14-17 during the event). They camp with a unit and enjoy the full international Jamboree experience

Adult Unit Leaders lead patrols of Explorer Scouts travelling to and camping at the event, helping young people safely enjoy the jamboree

Adult International Service Team members usually arrange their own travel to the event. They support the organisers to operate the site and jamboree activities

How trips from UK are managed

More than 50 UK Scout Counties, plus Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland plan their own unique trips to the event. Each micro-contingent has a European Jamboree "Point Of Contact" volunteer.
