Daily Activities

The daily activities run two sessions a day for six days of the Jamborette - Wednesday through Friday of the first week, then Monday through Wednesday of the second week. Some activities run all day, but most often the Scouts can choose two activities to take part in each day. They collect sticky badges in their guidebooks at each activity, and when a Scout has collected sufficient stickies, he or she earns the "White Cockade" patch.

Climbing Wall

After climbing up, the Scouts abseil down (that's "rappel" to Americans)

Scouts are instructed in proper use of climbing harnesses and ropes

Scouts can also climb this giant rope ladder

Scouts could talk to other Scouts via ham radio at the Amateur Radio setup.

Amateur Radio Station GB0BAJ was in contact with stations around the world for four days of the Jamborette.
