Blair Atholl Welcomes Back Scouts for First Time in Four Years

Blair Atholl is set to welcome Scouts from across the world for the first International Jamborette in four years. 

Over 500 Scottish Scouts will arrive on Monday July 18th and set up tents for their overseas counterparts who will be in Highland Perthshire from Tuesday.

Once everyone is settled in, activities will get underway with the event set to last for 10 days. 

Camp Chief Colin Peters said: “It’s really exciting to be able to return to Blair Atholl after four years. 

“Our camp in 2020 was held virtually but nothing beats being outdoors in such a picturesque place in Highland Perthshire overlooked by Blair Castle.

“What’s really exciting is we’ve got over 500 Scottish Explorer Scouts camping alongside over 300 Scouts from around the world.

“They’ve come from as far away as Japan, Canada, Namibia and from across Europe and they’re working together in teams, enjoying activities, cooking, camping and looking after each other.

The camp has ran every two years since 1946 with this event marking the 38th time it has been held.

Peters added: “It takes a massive team of volunteers over 400 adults from Scotland and around the world but they do it because they know this is a fantastic opportunity and young people get so much benefit from it. 

“We thank them for their support.”

There are a range of activities on from The Great Blair Bake Off to mountain biking, water rafting and bubble football.
