Jamboree on the Air and Jamboree on the Internet (JOTA-JOTI) are a fun and exciting annual experience for all young people in Scouts and Guides. It is a "travel-free" Jamboree that takes place wherever you are in the world. The theme for this year is Together for a Better World.

This page represents the proposed plans for Garigal District Scouts, Northern Beaches District Scouts and the local Girl Guide groups that participate in our annual JOTA/JOTI event. You should check with your local activities team to find out what's planned in your district and region.

Photos from previous camps can be viewed on the Photo pages. See the menus above.

Weekend Activities

The following activities are planned for the sessions across the weekend:

See this page for the full weekend programme. The page is designed to be printed directly from your browser.

Scouts and Guides are combined into mixed groups for the activities. Each group is given a coloured wrist band which identifies the activity for each session.

By participating in the weekend programme Scouts can work towards a Special Interest Area in STEM. Guides will be able to cover many areas from the Science and Technology Challenge Badge.


Registration will be using the Sydney North Region Event booking system. Costs will be announced closer to the event when we have determined the exact programme. When this is ready we will add a link here and notify leaders.

Groups that turn up on the weekend without a booking will be turned away.

Camping Arrangements

The location will be Terrey Hills Public School in Cooyong Ave, Terrey Hills. This has proved to be a popular site within walking distance to the Radio Club and Terrey Hills Scout Hall. We will camp on the sports oval and use some of the school buildings for our activities.

Scouts and Guides can move in on Friday from 4.30pm. Closing parade is 12.30 on Sunday with groups packing up and moving out by 2pm.

At least one leader from each unit needs to attend the Leader meeting at 9pm on Friday night in the COLA near the canteen. We will go through the weekend programme, confirm bookings, and hand out the wrist bands.

Camping will be on the school sports oval. Entry is through the gate on Cooyong Ave. When dropping off youth members, the only permitted entry is to enter on foot. No cars are permitted in the school grounds.

On arrival please go to the admin area in the COLA near the camping area for your site allocation and instructions.

Each group will need to take their own garbage home at the end of the camp. Please ensure that no rubbish, tent pegs or other items are left behind.

Vehicle entry to Terrey Hills Public School

There are to be no vehicles driven into the school grounds or onto the sports oval. Trailers may be pushed in and parked on the grass near the campsites. Cars must be parked on the street.


We're looking for adult and Venturer helpers for the computer and electronic kit activities. If you have basic computer skills or can wield a soldering iron and know a resistor from a capacitor then we'd love to have you for a session, a day or the whole weekend.

Cub Scout and Junior Guide Linking Activity

Cub Scouts and Junior Guides who have turned 10 might like to camp with their Scout 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 day visitor programme for Joeys, Cubs and Junior Guides.

JOTI Radio

A live Internet radio station with music, interviews and scout/guide chatter is provided by the Avon Scouts in the UK. Schedules and an audio player are available on the JOTI Radio website.

In the spirit of reconciliation we acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
