Applications have closed.
If you missed out on getting your application submitted in time we are maintaining a waiting list so that we can fill any spots that may become available. This is dependent on a number of factors, including available flights and transfers so it is not as easy as one out, one in. In addition, late applications will not receive the contingent merchandise prior to the Jamboree and may not be camping with their home troops.

If you would like to be considered for a spot with the Queensland Contingent and have not yet completed an application to attend please contact the applications director at: admin@aj.scoutsqld.com.au

You’ll need your personal details, medical information, dietary requirements, emergency contact details and a passport style photo. All sections must be filled in, and the Online Application submitted. You then need to print your application, sign it, get signatures from your Scout Leader and Group Leader/Leader in Charge, scan the signed application to PDF and upload it back to the Jamboree Application system (that’s right, no more sending in paperwork!).

Helpful hints for your application:

  • Photos must be clear, straight on and identify the person

  • Medical details – including medication – need to be up to date. You can change and update these in the AJ2019 application portal in the lead-up to AJ2019
