How do I raise money to pay the fees?

Fundraising is a major part of the Jamboree experience.

Start with a simple plan and a fundraising target in mind. Then gather together as many Scouting friends from your Unit as you can that are interested in attending. Organise a gathering to discuss ideas for fundraising.

It’s a good idea to try and share the load. It’s a lot easier to save the money if you are supporting each other, setting and reaching goals and swapping ideas.

Put some fundraising activities into the calendar. One per term makes all the difference! Below is a list of ideas to get you started:

  • Bunning BBQs
  • Monster Scout raffle
  • Flyer deliveries for local businesses
  • Chocolates
  • Sell Christmas trees
  • Raffle a trailer of firewood
  • Car wash
  • Garage/Car boot sale
  • Trivia night
  • Phone Book Deliveries
