What is a Jamboree?
The Australian Jamboree (AJ) is a camp that is held every three years by Scouts Australia and is the largest event on the Australian Scouting calendar. It regularly attracts around 10,000 Scouts, Venturer Scout helpers and Leaders. The 26th Australian Jamboree ‘AJ2025’, will be held in Maryborough Queensland and runs from the 6th to the 15th of January 2025.
The Purpose of a Jamboree is…
to provide young people with an active program that encourages participation and elements of self-directed learning and includes activities that stimulate their physical, intellectual, emotional, social, character and spiritual development singularly and collectively leading to character development; thus assisting the young person to develop the attributes of good character as determined by the Scout Promise and Law. It should be the culmination of all they have learnt in Scouting.
