About Jamberee 2002
The theme of the 20th World Scout Jamboree, 2003 Thailand is "Share our World,Share our Cultures". This is a unique opportunity for young people from all around the world to take part in this world event in the Scouting spirit of sharing, living and learning our cultural diversity. The Cross Roads of Culture, one of the 8 modules in this Jamboree, will be a meeting point for youth of the new millenium.
Boys and girls who are eligible to take part in this event are those aged between 14 and 18 years old on 28 December 2002, that is born between 29 December 1984 and 28 December 1988. As with previous Jamborees, the standard troop size will be 36 youths plus 4 adult leaders. Troops should be organised into four patrols of 9 young people. Contingents which do not have enough patrols to form a full troop will be joined with patrols from other countries to form a troop. You will need to provide one adult leader for each of your patrols in such a combined troop. Service Staff are young adults from 18 to 30 willing to undertake a service task allocated by the Jamboree Organising Committee. Service Staff who have been accepted by the National Scout Association of Thailand may be included in the national contingent. Applications must be made in advance to the NSOT. Contingent Headquarters Staff are adult leaders needed to support the contingent. They are requested not to camp nor eat with the troop or patrol as the World Scout Jamboree is a youth event.
