Participate in Chamboree as the excitement builds towards the event. 

We’ve recommended the age range suitability of an activity, but don’t hesitate to check out the activities and their suitability for your programme! To help leaders we’ve provided links to the Scout & Guide badges.

If you’ve got any more ideas to offer, we’d love to hear from you. Share them by email with our programme team.

Don’t forget to send your photos & videos with us @Chamboree #Chambonauts
