Does the jamboree have a theme?
The theme for Jamboree22 is sustainability, defined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The jamboree will be an exciting journey where the participants can explore their own ways to make the world a better place. Sustainability will be a theme affecting everything we do, both what we do and how we do it. Together we strive towards making the first climate positive jamboree ever.
Are international participants welcome?
Yes!
Can I be a volunteer camp staff?
For those 18 years and older we offer a wide range of volunteer camp staff tasks. As camp staff you will be part of a patrol and assigned to one or many different tasks during the week. In your registration you will have the possibility to list your interest for different areas of work. Registration for camp staff is individual and separated from the scout group registration. We expect the registration to open during mid-autumn 2020 and close on April 30th, 2022. As international camp staff you are expected to communicate in English. The participant fee for camp staff is 1500 SEK. (Lower if you also join the build-up before the camp and/or the take-down afterwards)
Where will the jamboree be located?
Norra Åsum, just outside the city Kristianstad in Skåne, the most southern part of Sweden. The camp site is close to where the World Scout Jamboree was held in 2011 and offer a lovely variety of open fields, forest and groves.
How is "Norra Åsum" pronounced?
Something like "Nora Awesome".
How do we get there?
As a part of our sustainability focus we highly recommend everyone who can to come by train. There are several daily direct trains from Copenhagen to Kristianstad C and from there a bus line takes you all the way to the camp site.
When do we register?
The online registration will open during mid-autumn 2020 and close on January 31st 2022 for scout groups and on April 30th 2022 for camp staff. More information about the registration and details needed will be included in the coming Bulletins. Make sure to register for the Bulletins in the contact form on our website.
Will we get a Swedish host group to camp with?
All international scout groups will be paired with a Swedish host scout group well in advance so that you can make contact and prepare your practical arrangements for the camp. You and your host group will camp together and hopefully they can support you with some of the camp equipment needed etc.
Which languages will be used?
The primary language at the jamboree will be Swedish but relevant practical information and activity instructions will be available also in English. Almost all Swedish people above 13 speak English so there will always be someone to ask if needed. Your host scout group will also be able to help you with any information or communication needed.
What can we do if we want to stay longer in Sweden?
If you want to extend your adventure and stay a bit longer in the region, both we and our partners at Region Skåne are happy to help you with recommendations and information. Please have a look at www.visitskane.com.
