Welcome to the 12th Great Lakes Jamboree
The longest continuous running Jambo in Ontario

On behalf of the staff I would like to extend an invitation to all Scouts, Scouters, Guides and Guiders within the World Brotherhood of Scouting and Guiding to attend and be part of this wonderful Jamboree experience.

Great Lakes Jambo

The Dates for this Jamboree are:
July 09 – 17, 2016

Great Lakes Jamboree will be at Camp BEL at Dorchester near London Ontario!

Thanks to feedback from participants last Jambo we have again tweaked the package.
The hike program and canoe programs are back based on feedback and participation levels last year.
Some main on-site villages have also been modified to allow for more hands on time for each youth using the village.
The Brownsea challenge for older youth was well received last Jamboree and has been expanded for 2016.
The new STEM program that was introduced last Jambo was such a hit we have doubled the area for it and added 3 new STEM activities.

We offer a full 5 nights of Subcamp program with 2 nights of camp wide program with special themes!
There are repel towers, climbing wall, archery, rifle ranges, blacksmith forge, Leathercraft, handicraft, Dutch oven cooking, Bruce Trail hikes, canoe, Geocache adventure, macro pioneering, ScoutCraft Skills Village and much more. A Woodbadge Part 1 for Leaders will be offered as well as a separate Leader event area. Special Opening and Closing ceremonies will add to your Jamboree Adventure.

Join Jambo Today!

Cost for the Jamboree is $250 / youth, $115 /leader, plus your troop registration fee of $100.00. ($50 is refunded at the camp if you attend). This includes everything except your food and how you get to the site and home again. We are always looking to maintain the price as low as possible while providing the best activities and experience for your Troop. As a team, we feel this is still the best deal anywhere for your youth in the summer of 2016.

Scouters, I urge you to read and share the details inside of this package with your youth to see how you and your Troop can have a GREAT summer Jamboree experience.

Act Quick! We have a registration limit of 500!
Don't miss out!
