1st Sylvan Lake Scouts
We took a unit from 15th New West (RIP) to CJ'97 via air from YVR to YWG, then bus from YWG to Thunder Bay. For 10 participants (2 Scouters + 8 youth) we had one loaded pack each plus a single duffle for extra tarps, ropes, poles (11 pieces total). It comes down to planning, prep, gear selection, and PRACTICE ahead of time, to pull off a light-weight jamboree ("... Wise in the use of all resources"). It sparked an internal challenge to get lighter and lighter. Upon arrival, while other units waited hours (literally) for transport to their sub-camp, we "backpacked" it in the 1 to 2km to our farthest placed sub-camp. Just my 2 cents.

For hardware you may purchase a cargo safe bin that you can padlock (Lowes). Make sure that your items have no room to move around in the bin! This can also be checked in or use the soft duffle method above. Make sure that weight is under the air lines limit or you will pay extra. Also note that no pressurized items are allowed and to make your stoves flight safe. When you land you can get propane or fuel from the jamboree as these items are not allowed to fly.
If you are packing more than ten person's worth of gear, you are packing too much! Good luck.
