    I would really like to take my Guides to a jamboree next year however due to my job i cannot have the 1st week of August off work, all the ones i have been looking at like Essex, Kent, Poacher, are during this week. Does anyone know of any others that are any other weeks?

    Thanks

    Try one of the Scottish ones, but traditionally it's that week that is Jamboree week.

    I can't think of any for 2017, but I know Norjam 2018 is the week after the normal 'Jamboree' week

    Most large camps in the UK will be around that time, as that is the short period when most if not all schools are on summer break - Scottish schools start autumn term from mid-August onwards.
