Fee Information

The jamboree fee includes the 23rd World Scout Jamboree registration fee, pre-jamboree in HONG KONG for unit leader and youth participants (breakfasts are included; lunch and dinner are not), jamboree kit, contingent and unit equipment, all meals during the jamboree, accommodation, activities, flights and ground transportation between the date of departure from selected points in Canada and Japan jamboree site.

Travel insurance is required but it is not included in the jamboree fee because individuals tend to have them through their personal insurance or as an employee benefit. If you do not have travel insurance, we will provide you with the option to purchase one before we book your airline tickets.
