We're welcoming groups from around the world!

Hola, Bonjour, Ciao! We’re planning a fantastic international Jamboree in Durham during the summer of 2020 and would love you to join us. Were in the North East of England, an area of outstanding beauty with a history of mining and farming heritage and our own world heritage site the Durham Cathedral and Castle.

We’ve got a life changing adventure planned for those aged between 10 and 18 years old. Everyone will be immersed in our 7 night, 8 day Jamboree experience that will have a real buzz, a great range of activities and languages from around the world:

  • Join one of our five sub-camp communities which will be your home for the week. Get to know your neighbours and why not even invite them to dinner?
  • Experience the spectacle of our opening and closing ceremonies on our main stage.
  • Take part in 6 days of exciting and adventurous activities – from the very latest attractions from around the UK to the best Scouting activities available. Well also be whisking you off-site for two days for a great off-site adventure.
  • If you’re aged 14-18, your own exclusive and secret programme on the Thursday.
  • A great variety of evening entertainment, from parties, to campfires, to films well have it all!
  • Soak up the atmosphere in the village centre visit the cafe, the shops and the entertainment venues.
