Bigger and better ScotJAM returns for 2018

Bigger and better ScotJAM returns for 2018

15 September 2017

ScotJAM, our Scottish summer jamboree, is returning to Scout Adventures Lochgoilhead in summer 2018!

We’re promising even more adventure, fun and challenges next year with a five-day camp for Cubs, followed by a seven-day event for the Scout Section.  

Dates for the diary

The dates for each event will be:

ScotJAM for Cubs – Monday 16 July – Friday 20 July

ScotJAM for Scouts – Saturday 21 July – Saturday 28 July

Both events will be held at Lochgoilhead and bookings from Cub Packs, Scout Troops, or individual Cubs or Scouts are all welcome.  

What you can expect?

Each event will promise lots of fun, opportunities and challenges, and the chance to achieve an arm full of badges.

ScotJAM 2017's Cubs were kept active with non-stop adventure day and night, including lots of water sports, bushcraft, archery, abseiling rock climbing, hill walking, water slide, campfire, disco and loads more! So, you can expect more of the same next year.

Last year’s sell-out Cubs event was a huge success. One parent commented:

“I was nervous about sending my young man away as it was his first time away alone. He came back grinning from ear to ear declaring he wants to do it again.”

Participants stay in Lochgoilhead’s cosy dormitory accommodation and are provided with three nutritious but child-friendly meals a day. An experienced staff and volunteer team look after all young people throughout their stay.

Booking

Booking will open in late October, so look out for more details soon.

If you’d like to be emailed when booking opens and to be kept informed more generally about ScotJAM, please email connect@scouts.scot and we’ll add your name to the list.

Can you help?

We’re also looking for volunteers to be part of the ScotJAM staff team.
