Pilot’s Handbook

We are here to assist with any questions and issues you have, some of the services provided include:


Want to form a link with a group from the UK attending Chamboree? This is an easy way to build a relationship with a UK Group, or gain support for equipment and catering. We will endeavour to put you in touch with a Group who wants to form an international relationship before the event.

Days Out

The Jamboree programme will be full of activities to fill your week. However, should you wish to make alternative arrangements to travel to Chester, Manchester, Liverpool, London, or another tourist location, our team will be happy to help you make the best arrangements.


If you’re interested in extending your trip to the UK by staying with host families or by using Scout or Guide headquarters, we will try to arrange this.

Visa Applications

If you require a visa to enter the UK, and need support from the Jamboree to gain that visa, We can provide a letter of intent to the Visa Issuing authority to support your application.

Food Purchase

We will arrange a transport method to a nearby supermarket, and will help you with your food needs.
