Narrabeen Australia 19-21 October 2018

Life on Land - United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 15

Jamboree on the Air - Jamboree on the Internet (JOTA-JOTI) is a fun and exciting annual experience for all young people in Scouts and Guides using the widest range of technology communication channels to educate, promote cultural awareness, develop tolerance, as well as enhance sharing, collaboration and teamwork, along with building a sense of belonging to the worldwide Scout and Guide Movements. It is a "travel-free" Jamboree that takes place wherever you are in the world.

We're working on an exciting new location, which should reduce costs compared to last year. Watch this space for updates.

The JOTA camp website http://jota.uniq.com.au has lots of JOTA and JOTI related information.

Weekend Activities

The following activities will be done in sessions across the weekend:

By participating in the weekend programme Scouts can earn the Communications Proficiency Badge while Guides will be eligible for the Science and Technology Challenge Badge.

See this page for the full programme.


Cost for camping and activities for the weekend is yet to be determined for participants.

There are no fees for helpers not staying overnight, although each Scout troop or Guide unit must have at least one adult leader with them at all times.

Cub Scout and Junior Guide Linking Activity

Cub Scouts and Junior Guides who have turned 10 might like to camp with their Scout troop or Guide unit for the weekend. This is a short, easy camp for older Cubs and Junior Guides to see if they are ready to step up. The full fee must be paid to participate in the weekend activity.

Note that we are not offering a programme for Joeys, Cubs and Junior Guides.

Vehicle entry to Sydney Lakeside Caravan Park

Please take note of these vehicle entry requirements on Friday evening. This is to avoid a traffic jam inside the caravan park.

When dropping off youth members, the only permitted entry is to park in Walsh St on the northern side of the caravan park and enter on foot via the gateway about 50 metres from the corner of Narrabeen Park Pde.

Leaders, or parents with trailers, may enter via the caravan park main gate off Lake Park Road. Follow the road around, go straight ahead through the roundabout, at the end turn left and go past the toilet block. We are camping on the grassy area north and east of this building.

Please go to the large white tent for your site allocation and instructions.
