For parents, Scouts and Contingent Co-ordinators

Information for Overseas Patrols

We will update this page with important information and guidance as soon as it is available, so please check back regularly. We will also email the head of each contingent with new information when we have it.

There are a few places available for Overseas patrols at Blair Atholl 2022. Applications can be made here. Please email blairatholl2022@jamborette.org.uk if you have a specific question.

Fees
The fee for all Youth participants at the 2022 Jamborette is calculated at £350 per person. Adult participant fees are £300. Youth participant fees will be charged on a Patrol basis, the amount being £2,100 per patrol. Patrols should comprise six scouts. In extraordinary circumstances, patrols of 7 may be considered after consultation.

The Fee will cover all catering, activity, and camp facilities costs for the duration of the Jamborette. For the avoidance of doubt, the Fee does not include any travel to and from the Jamborette site at Blair Atholl.

The Jamborette management team will be happy to assist overseas contingents with travel arrangements within Scotland at an additional cost determined by the travel arrangements required.

Payment Schedule
Overseas Contingents
01 November 2021 – Non-Refundable Deposit Payment per Patrol £150.
01 February 2022 – Stage Payment per Patrol £450.
01 April 2022 – Final Balance Payment per Patrol £1,500.
01 April 2022 – Fee Payment per Adult Participant £300.

(Update 24/2/22) We’ll work with contingents who have applied in 2022 to establish a custom payment schedule 

Pre and Post Camp arrangements
Contingents who have attended before will appreciate that in the past we made arrangements for home hospitality after the camp and included travel costs to and from the departure port. This resulted in a greater cost per participant than that paid by Scottish Scouts. As we are unable to arrange Home Hospitality (in the homes of Scottish Scouts due to both COVID and The Scout Association rules) we have made the camp cost exactly the same for Scottish and Overseas Scouts. Should you wish assistance with accommodation after arrival in Scotland, travel to and from the camp or accommodation before departure as we have done in the past, we will endeavor to do our best to help. If you wish to extend your stay in Scotland and seek to spend time with Scottish Scouts (eg in local scout campsite, scout accommodation or while you use hotel accommodation) we can help to identify options. We’re collecting information from contingents on thier travel plans here
