Blair Atholl 2020 BA History

Welcome to the Blair Atholl Jamborette

The Blair Atholl Jamborette is Scottish Scouting's premier international event. 

It brings together over 1,000 Explorer Scouts and Leaders from all over the world for a 10 day camp in picturesque highland Perthshire.

Every 2 years since 1946 the tranquil grounds of Blair Castle have been transformed with participants from all over the world coming together to camp and share in fun, friendship, and a massive range of adventurous activities and challenges.

Around 1700 Scouts and adults took part in the 2018 camp during which Scottish Scouts representing every District and Region in the country were paired with fellow scouts from as far afield as Japan, Ecuador and Canada. The camp continues to grow in popularity but numbers are capped so as to maintain the sense of community and friendship that the Jamborette has delivered for many years.

Overseas visitors to the camp are treated as the guests of the Scottish Scouts.  All that's required is personal kit and a sense of adventure, everything else is supplied for you. The Scottish Scouts and their overseas guests camp in joint patrols on subcamps, working together to ensure high camping standards under the watchful eye of the subcamp leader teams.

After the camp the Blair Atholl experience continues with a period of up to 5 days home hospitality with the friends made at the camp.
