Neither Scouts Canada nor the
World Scouting Organization
would ever put any member
of Scouting in a situation of risk.
Parents
Normally this is a parental concern.
Discuss with parents the nature of a Jamboree,
the unique opportunities it provides and
the very large number of youth and adults
who attend from all corners of the globe.
Ease parental fears and answer all questions
to the best of your ability.
Work
A member of the Area Organizing Committee
should (or arrange for someone to) contact
the youth’s employer (with his or her consent)
and act as an advocate for the youth.
Employers are generally sympathetic to such
requests when they understand the full nature
of the World Jamboree event and the maturity
which often comes as a result of it.
Social Events
Area Organizing Committees might organize
a few social events such as bowling,
roller blading, pizza party or movie night
so that participating youth will get
to know each other.
Camping
Get-to-know-you camps or campfires are
also a good means of mixing. All of these events
are good opportunities to include the parents
of the youth and to have a WSJ
information update session.
