Scouts Scotland have formally approved next year’s Jamborette, held in the ground of the castle at Blair Atholl. This year, the West Region Blair Atholl 2024 coordinators will be Blair and Katie Ross and they look forward to working with the district to ensure our young persons going to the Jamborette have the best possible experience.
The region will have a central application process, 1 selection day and 5 training camps. We do not yet know how many patrols West Region are being allocated. (Possibly 10, with hopefully 3 patrols for Greenock and District)
The cost of the Jamborette this year will be up to £650, this includes the Jamborette fee, training day and 5 training camps, transport to and from the Jamborette, and a West Region branded garment. (We hope to reduce this fee).
