NIjam 2017

Plans are well underway for NIJam 2017. This camp promises to be a fun filled event to offer both Scouts and Explorer Scouts an opportunity to make new friends, gain new experiences and learn new skills. This camp will be run in Crawfordsburn between  July 29th– 6th August 2017.

Staff, Work and Play
We have limited number of staff places and explorer work and play places and we anticipate that these will fill very fast. The deadline for returning the expression of interest form with your deposit is 25th March 2016. We wish to do some staff and explorer job training over the next 12 months so applications are now open for both. We have already over 50 dedicated staff working on delivering this camp. Everyone working on site will need to apply as NIjam staff including myself as camp chief.

Provisional group booking is also open at his stage to allow an expression of interest from group both local and international with final numbers required later in the year. Final registration will only be confirmed with group final numbers and deposit for each Scout/Leader but groups that have returned and early group booking form with approx numbers at his stage will get priority.

For more information on NIJam 2017 visit either our facebook book page NIJam 2017 or our website.
