22nd WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE


The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will take place from 27 July 7 August 2011 in Kristianstad, Sweden with around 40,000 Scouts expected to attend from around the world.
The Jamboree campsite will be in Rinkaby, outside the town of Kristianstad in the very south of Sweden.

Theme
The theme of the event is ‘Simply Scouting’. Within the idea of ‘Simply Scouting’, there are three key concepts for the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden: meetings, nature and solidarity.

Dates
25 July 2011 IST Arrival Day
27 July 2011 Participant Arrival Day
7 August 2011 Participant Departure Day
8 August 2011 IST Departure Day

Programme
The Jamboree programme encompasses everything at the event. The Scouts will experience the 22nd World Scout Jamboree through five areas: subcamp life, module activities, common areas, arena events and Camp in Camp.

Participation
Participants in the 22nd World Scout Jamboree are young people aged between 14 and 17 years old. They must have been born between 25 July 1993 and 27 July 1997.

International Service Team
An estimated 8,000 staff are needed to run the Jamboree, and these will come from countries all around the world. The International Service Team (IST) will be open to active Scouts aged 18 or over at the start of the Jamboree (born on or before the 24 July 1993).

Operation One World
Scouts from every country in the world should have the chance to come to the 22nd World Scout Jamboree. To help Scouts who have economic difficulties to participate in the Jamboree, a solidarity fund has been established, called Operation One World. Operation One World will ensure that all fund recipients have everything they need to fully participate in the event.
Fundraising for Operation One World has already begun, and several large target donors have been identified. National Scout Organisations are also essential to the success of the Operation. Contributions to Operation One World can be through direct financial donations or through helping participants from a specific part of the world. Contingents are encouraged to think about how they can expand any existing partnerships they have to include participation at the Jamboree.
