Get involved in the 2016 Avon Jamboree!

Added 04/02/2015 test

In May 2016, over 3000 young people from across Avon will be gathering for a weekend of adventure at the 2016 County Jamboree. The event will run from Friday 27th to Monday 30th May at The Windmill Fisheries Showground, Westerleigh Road, BS37 8QZ

Have Your Say!

We want every young person in Avon Scouts to have their say about how the event is run, and the first thing we need to know is what Theme you want for the weekend?
Previous county Jamboree themes have been "Four Seasons" and "Ton of Fun", we're looking for an exciting theme, and a badge to go with it, for the 2016 Jamboree.
Please download and print the template below and ask the young people in your group to fill it in with their ideas!
The winning entry from each section will enjoy being a "VIP-for-a-day" at the Jamboree! The closing date for entries is Friday 23rd May
Watch out for more ways to get involved over the coming months!
