The Kent International Jamboree is a week long International camp, held in the heart of Kent every four years. We welcome Scouts and Guides from across the globe to take part in eight days of fun, friends and adventure between the 29th July and 5th August 2017.
All Cubs, Scouts and Explorers who are aged between 10 and 17 on the above dates are entitled to attend.
This is a week-long camp and most of the activities are based on the site. These activities will include things like climbing, air activities such as micro lighting, sub aqua activities, go karting, off road 4x4ing, kayaking, canoeing & sailing together with massive opening and closing ceremonies and onsite entertainment, competitions and workshops. It also gives the young people the chance to come together with thousands of other young people from all over the world in a Scouting environment. There will also be an exciting day out, off-site. Details of this are still to be confirmed by the KIJ team.
The total cost will be £245 per person. Payment can be made in installments. Payment by installment will be made between October 2016 and May 2017, you choose the amount and frequency, as long as it's fully paid by the deadline. This is the maximum cost of the camp. As with 2013 we will be running a full programme of fundraising activities in the lead up to the event in July to reduce the cost per person. The more fundraising you take part in, the less the cost of this fantastic experience becomes.
Fundraising events will be notified through My.SCOUT.
Our programme of fundraising activities will be posted to here as soon as details are confirmed. They are likely to include Bag Packing, a sponsored bike ride (we'll try and keep sponsored events to a minimum!), etc...
All the forms we need completed for the event will appear here.
We'll be building this up over the coming months as we are asked questions!
We'll be hosting an information drop-in session at the hall on Thursday 22nd September, 7pm-8pm, to answer any questions. Booking closes on 30th September.
Coming soon, but will be the usual including sleeping bag and roll mat. Pack light - space is limited!
