The safety of all Scouting members is always our highest priority!  

Scouts Australia and the Contingent Management Team look forward to a successful Contingent travelling to New Zealand, however, the current coronavirus pandemic obviously has the potential to have a significant impact on this event. 

In preparation for any Contingent, the Australian International Team obtains the very latest updates and advice from the Event Organising Committee, our Travel Insurer and the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.  

Should official advice ever change in the future, the International Commissioner of Australia will make an informed determination on cancelling Contingent travel to New Zealand when necessary. 

It is a condition of your Contingent application that members of Scouts Australia cannot attend the site of the 23rd New Zealand Jamboree if such a determination is issued, irrespective of whether the Jamboree continues for local members. 

If the Contingent is cancelled (e.g. on medical advice or due to border restrictions), Scouts Australia will provide a refund of all recoverable amounts paid.
