As a jobber at Vendelbo Jamboree 2020, we can offer you an enjoyable and fun guiding/scouting experience along with our team of jobbers.
Our jobbers work in one of three committees: Technology and Logistics, Activities and Administration. You can participate as a helper at on pre-jamboree, main-jamboree or on post-jamboree, and you decide when to participate. Of course, we are hoping to get many helping hands during pre-jamboree, as this is the time when we are building the jamboree for real.
Contact email@example.com to hear more about joining the team of jobbers. Here, you can also tell more about which committee you would like to join primarily and which useful skills you have to offer the jamboree. E.g., First Aid, chain saw certificate, driving licence for large vehicles, climbing instructor, languages etc.
Our expectations of jobbers at Vendelbo Jamboree
As a jobber, you will be assigned a committee where you will give your primary tasks. But we are helping each other across the committees, whenever the need arises. So even if you are assigned to one committee, we might need your hands with tasks in other committees as well. We are together in giving our guides and scouts the very best experiences.
You will be given tasks from the chairpersons or from the Jamboree Executive Committee. We expect you to join us in a good mood, openminded and prepared to help with different tasks. You are welcome to bring along your partner/spouse and your children at the Jamboree, but we expect you to be active as a jobber, when “on the job”.
- Pre-Jamboree: Free
- Main-Jamboree: 80 DKK pr. day, and max. 500 DKK for the whole week
- Post-Jamboree: Free
- Jobber children below age 6 participate for free
- Jobber children age 6-12 pay half price pr. day and maximum of 250 DKK for the whole jamboree
(Jobber children = Children of jobbers, who do not live in a camp with a group. All jobber children eat in our jobber canteen).
We will establish a jobber camp, where you can sleep in a cabin in smaller dormitories (with others), in your own tent or in a camping wagon. There will be good toilet and bathing facilities for our jobbers.
Our Lovely Jobber Canteen
All jobbers are welcome to eat in the Jobber Canteen. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. All paying jobber eat for free during Pre- and Post-Jamboree and all paying helpers eat for free during the Main Jamboree. Our jobber cooks have a tradition of cooking well and making sure all jobbers are well taken care of throughout the week.
Outside meal times, the canteen is open to all leaders at the jamboree. There will be plenty of opportunity to spend a cosy and fun time together.
We would like to thank all our jobbers properly. Therefore, we invite all jobbers to a jobber party on Saturday the 1st of August at around 18:00.
In the top of the Jamboree hierarchy, you find our Jamboree Executive Committee whose primary job is to make sure everyone has a fantastic Jamboree experience. This committee is headed by our Jamboree Chiefs who work together with the responsible chairpersons of the jamboree committees.
