Blair Atholl 2014
The 34th Scottish International Patrol Jamborette was held at Blair Castle, Blair Atholl, Perthshire, Scotland.
Scottish Staff arrived on Saturday 19th July, Scottish Scouts arriving on Monday 21st and 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.
The camp is open only to Scouts 14 years of age or over on 21st July 2014 and no older than 17 years of age on 1st August 2014. No Scouts under the age of 14 or 18 years old or over will be accepted for this camp.
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.
There will be an exciting programme of Scouting Activities. For activities see Activities at Blair Atholl. And of course a real opportunity to make new friends.
For Scouts from out with Scotland, only personal camp equipment is required.
Other camping equipment will be provided by the Scottish Patrol who receive a detailed kit list in due course from their local Blair Atholl representative.

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. Further days can be arranged in Scout halls etc. at your expense.
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 that were on offer at the 2012 camp and scouts attending therefore have an idea of their activity choices BEFORE even arriving at camp.
Details of Overseas participants in 2012 can be found under the Jamborette Heading.
The total numbers of Scouts and Leaders who attended the camp in 2012 was 1300.
