Pre-Jamboree Tour

A short 2-3 day pre-tour designed to encourage friendships and connection would be organised before the Jamboree. This provides an opportunity for the Contingent to gather at a suitable location in New Zealand before departing for the Jamboree and arriving onsite as a group. This will involve a full day of patrol-based activities to support Patrol bonding. The pre-tour would be compulsory for all Contingent members.  

The pre-tour will run from Thursday 28 December 2023 to Saturday 30 December 2023. Depending on departure location from Australia, some Contingent members may depart Australia on Wednesday 27 December 2023. 

Venturer Scouts will travel to the Jamboree site on 28 December 2023, before the main Australian Contingent is due to arrive. This is to enable Venturer Scouts to undertake a site induction.


The Jamboree will run from Saturday 30 December 2023 till Sunday 7 January 2024.
