Scotland Jamborette 2018

This is an announcement for preliminary interest by any Scout/Venturer who would like to join the Maryland Contingent going to the 2018 Blair Atholl Scottish International Scout Jamboree. This signup is not a guarantee of acceptance into the Contingent. Scout interviews will be conducted by trip leaders. You must be between 14-17 yrs. old and Star rank by the time the Jamboree starts. 
 
The tentative dates for the trip are from July 9 to August 2, 2018. Final dates and fees for the Jamboree have not been set by the Scottish Scout Association but traditionally are the last 2 weeks of July. Our contingent will tour Iceland prior to going to the Jamboree, and the scouts will go on a 4-5 day home stay with a Scottish        scout family after the Jamboree is over. 
 
The Jamboree takes place on the grounds of Blair Castle in Blair Atholl, Perthshire, Scotland and has 1,100 scout participants from 15-20 countries. Scouts will merge into patrols with an international mix and participate in the 12 days of scouting activities and international friendship building. 
 
Our contingent will consist of 12 Scouts/Venturers (two patrols of 6) and 5 adults and is estimated to cost about $2,800 - $3,000 for the entire  3 1/2  weeks. Airfare will of course be the biggest expense and determine the final cost. We will have many fundraisers to ease the hit on your pocketbooks.
 
Contingent planning meetings will start in February of 2017.
