When can I choose my workshops?
Program announcements and details will gradually unfold over the coming months. About 6 weeks before Jamboree, we invite you to select workshop preferences. We guarantee that everyone will get at least one of their first preferences. Most guests are able to attend all their first preference workshops. When you arrive, you will recieve your workshop program for the weekend.
Are there hot showers? Please say there are!
Yes! There most certainly are hot showers, and toilets close to all the accommodation. Please keep in mind that this is an old scout camp, that has hosted thousands of scouts for many years. The camp also hosts weddings and receptions regularly. It isn't high end sparkling. But we make up for that with mirrorballs, candles, fairy lights and flags.
I am vegan / gluten free / dairy intolerant
No worries! We cater for all dietary requirements, as long as we know about them before hand. You will be asked this information on booking.
I can't pay for my ticket all upfront! Can I still come?
Of course! We know it can be tricky to pay all upfront. We have a deposit + payment plan option to pay for your ticket in installments. Totally fine!
We love kids! We have them too. But this event is designed to be an immersive, creative, reflective unplug and escape. While kids would no doubt LOVE Jamboree, it's definitely intended as an adult experience. With wine :)
We love blokes! Of course! There are blokes at Jamboree every year. Bring your blokes!
Can I bring my own booze?
Why of course! We invite you to BYO booze. We do have a Jamboree General Shop (oh stop it! really?) YES REALLY! The shop has a wine and beer ordering system if you forget (or run out!). The shop also stocks chocolate, sparkling water, pens, plus a load of amazing handmade and independent design goodies, curated by Ms Emma-Lee Crane AKA Milk Thieves. And it has EFTPOS!
Can I come for just one day?
At this stage, tickets are just for the whole dang beautiful weekend.
