On Site

The Jamboree is a HUGE activity site, full of adventure, challenges and exciting experiences.

It has a range of different activities, and places to chill out, get food and drinks, swap badges, and entertainment.

AJ2019 Program overview

10 Days might seem like a lifetime, but when you’ve got more to do than you can possibly handle, it’ll go quickly! 21st century Scouting is all about being Youth Led and Adult Supported.

The program for AJ2019 has been carefully crafted to maximise the amount of choice and control Scouts will have over their Jamboree experience. With over 40 unique choices available for the Onsite Activities alone, there’s sure to be something for everyone. You will get to experience everything from getting down and dirty in the mud to flying drones, from dragon boating to catapult and raft building. In additional to this, there are plenty of activities for those who prefer to take things easy and take in the culture and heritage side of South Australia.

But how does all this freedom and choice work?

The Activities program for the Jamboree Award has been put together to give you a wide range of challenges and experiences to make #friends for life. Each troop has been given a program for patrols to attend activities at specific times. Once the Patrol arrives at their activity site, they will then get to chose their own adventure within the activity site.
Challenges are waiting for you.
