A successful Jamboree requires support from thousands of Leaders filling many different roles.

Jamboree Organisers are seeking suitably qualified Activity Leaders to support the youth program. If a line leader role doesn’t appeal, why not help deliver one of the fantastic activities planned for AJ2019!

Opportunities are open to Leaders from any section – you don’t need to be a Scout Section Leader.

There are currently opportunities available in the following activity teams:

  • Woodhouse (offsite)
  • Metro Mania (offsite)
  • Water activities (offsite)
  • Bang! – archery / shooting (offsite)
  • Adventurous activities (onsite)
  • TechHaus (onsite)
  • Trades (onsite)

Interested? Identify your preferences in your online application, or contact Cory Hawkless, Program Director in South Australia by emailing cory@hawkless.id.au or call 0413 414 460 to discuss the opportunities available.

Woodhouse Adventure (Offsite)

Patrols at AJ2019 will spend an overnight activity at the famous Woodhouse Activity Centre where they’ll focus on activities like pioneering, navigation, camping, lightweight cooking and problems solving. The obstacle course on Woody’s Challenge Hill is a major fun feature of Woodhouse, and one of the best of its kind in Australia! Scouts at AJ2019 will crawl, climb, swing and slide their way up the hill, but the biggest challenge is in the Scout’s ability to work as a team and show leadership skills. Here’s your opportunity to be part of the ‘permanent’ Woodhouse AJ2019 activity team to keep this epic activity rolling. Up to 1300 Scouts on-site at Woodhouse at any one time!

Metro Mania (Offsite)

Heading offsite for a half day activity to the local Sporting Shooters Association range at Monarto is set to be a highlight for the Scouts. This activity is well supported by the local Sporting Shooters Association but AJ2019 still need a few more Leaders at this activity. Skills or qualifications in firearms or Archery would be greatly appreciated.

Water Activities (Offsite)

AJ2019 has secured an AMAZING water activities location right on the waterfront of the Wellington Marina at Wellington East on the Murray River South Australia with unrestricted access to a wonderful privately owned area of the Murray River real-estate. This site has lush green grass, substantial onsite facilities, and most importantly lots of water access with little/no other water traffic. Scouts SA are seeking leaders with Scouts Australia recognised certifications in all things water activities including Bronze Medallion, power/sail/kayak or canoe charge certificates.

Bang! – Archery / Shooting (Offsite)

Heading offsite for a half day activity to the local Sporting Shooters Association range at Monarto is set to be a highlight for the Scouts. This activity is well supported by the local Sporting Shooters Association but AJ2019 still need a few more Leaders at this activity. Skills or qualifications in firearms or Archery would be greatly appreciated.

Adventurous Activities (Onsite)

Rock climbing, abseiling, crate stacking, Flying foxes, haystack climb, water traps and all things adventurous and adrenalin. This site needs a lot of support from service leaders, particularly those with Scouts Australia recognised qualifications in the ClimbingAbseiling space.

TechHaus (Onsite)

Appealing to the inner nerd in most 11-14 year olds, the Technology house will provide exciting demonstrations from local universities, defence, and industry. Scouts will see cutting edge robotics, computer programming, drone construction and flying, Virtual and Augmented reality, radio communications and lots of other tech stuff. At this activity AJ2019 need quite a few Leaders on hand to ensure that little fingers don’t go where they shouldn’t and to help facilitate some of the hands-on activities like programming and drone school. If you are a bit of a nerd, this is the site for you.

Trades (Onsite)

The trades activity site will have a number of hands on ‘come and try’ type activities that will provide a taste for of a number of trades and each site will teach the Scouts a little something that they’ll be able to apply when they get home. To run this site AJ2019 need a good handful of experienced trades people across various trade disciplines, so if you have been in the {INSERT TRADE HERE} game for ages or are just a really experienced handy person that know your way around a shed – this is the site for you!
