Frequently Asked Questions

Last Updated on Wednesday 15th June 2022 at 4:31pm by Info Centre

Will there be flushing toilets?

Yes! Stithians showground has plenty of toilet blocks – but it wouldn’t be a jamboree without some portaloos would it?!

Will there be less mud this year?

Well it isn’t possible for there to be any more than last time.  Obviously we can’t control the weather, however Stithians Showground has tarmac roadways and areas of hard standing, so it’s definitely less of a worry. Best bring your wellies just in case though!

I’d like to attend as a unit leader. I have young children, can I bring them with me?

Yes you can – they will need to be included in your unit booking numbers. For children under 6 there will be a fee of £15, for children between 6 and 10 the fee is £50.

I’m bringing a unit of Scouts and Explorers (Guides and Rangers), will we be able to camp together?

Yes, we will keep mixed units together on the same subcamp.

Will I be able to choose what role I do if I join as Kernow Crew?

We will ask you for your preferences and try to match you to your preferred role/area. If you have specific skills or qualifications please let us know.

Will there be showers?

Yes! Stithians showground has permanent showers inside the toilet blocks. We will also bring more showers in so there are enough to go around.

Can I amend the numbers I have booked for?

Yes! Once you have booked if you need to amend the numbers you have booked for please send an email to [email protected] and include your unit reference number.

Are units catered for?

No, units will need to cater for themselves. The Jamboree fee does not include any food.

Where can I go shopping for food?

You can find information about food shops on the information for leaders page.
