NIjam 2017

After the great success of the Northern Ireland Jamboree in 2013 we have launched NIjam 2017 to take place in Crawfordsburn Scout Centre from Saturday 29th July to Saturday 5th August 2017. The camp will have a full range of activities from water based to climbing along with day trips to local areas. We hope to give the scouts a truely international experience and will welcome any international groups to visit with us. We will try and accommodate any groups needing to bring camping kit from overseas. We hope to exceed the 2013 numbers and have 1000 campers on site. There will be evening activities for both scouts and leaders with lots to do and new friends to meet. The theme for the Camp is Skills for Life, Friends for Life.
