Gear List

We have broken the packing list into two sections – gear for your day bag which will be taken onboard the aircraft, and gear that will be packed into your Contingent travel bag.

Stretchers will be provided by the New Zealand Jamboree.

This is a recommended list and assumes Scouts hand wash their clothes during the Jamboree.

Clearly label all your belongings with your name, Contingent and Unit number. Lost property will only find its way back to you if it is named. For example, K. Smith AUS 1201
