The Jamboree Preparation Camp is a vital part of the Jamboree experience where our Scouts can get together with the rest of the Scouts in our Jamboree Troop. On this camp we will be forming the Patrols and selecting Patrol Leaders and Assistant Patrol Leaders for our Troop. It is an opportunity for the Patrol members to get to know each other so that they can work together to get the most from their Jamboree experience.
Please confirm attendance by emailing Jess Hayes with a completed PIR Form with a copy to Grant Randle.
