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.

The fee for all Youth participants at the 2024 Jamborette is calculated at £450 per person. Adult participant fees are £380. 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. Patrol camping equipment is provided by Scottish Scouts. In 2024 we have reverted to arrangements similar to 2018; the fee does include travel to and from the Jamborette site at Blair Atholl and 1 nights accommodation before and after.

Pre and Post Camp arrangements

The camp cost includes 1 night accommodation on 15th July 2024 near an entry port in Scotland such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, or Aberdeen, onward travel to the camp, travel to the departure port after the camp, and 1 night accommodation near to that destination.

As a camp are unable to arrange Home Hospitality (in the homes of Scottish Scouts due to The Scout Association rules). 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) before or after the camp we can help to identify options. There are Scout Groups around Scotland who are keen to host contingents.
