CJ'07 is now officially over.
See the Jamboree Photo Memories (over 2,000 and counting!)

The following information remains available as a reference for future canadian jamboree organizers and participants. I hope that our experience will go on to help others as they prepare for what is nothing short of an adventure of a lifetime!

Water - Essential to Life

Water, who needs it? We all do. But how do we know if we are drinking enough?

Please go over the following with your scout before CJ:

Your Personal First Aid Kit

Here are some suggestions for making your own small personal first aid kit:

* Check, these items are often found on your pocket knife.

The unit will also have a more complete first aid kit. Anything requiring attention beyond first aid will be dealt with by on-site paramedics.

Sunday Visits - July 29

Family members can visit CJ'07 participants on Sunday July 29 in the morning only. As there is absolutely no parking at Camp Tamaracouta, all visitors are asked to go to Ski Mont Olympia (the same place all units must go to on arrival) to meet up with our mascot Toucs, and get picked up by our shuttle bus.

(See directions to Ski Mont Olympia below)

The bus departs from Ski Mont Olympia at 8:30 am sharp!

Cost of bus and parking of car: FREE

Toucs, our friendly mascot, will come and greet you at the parking lot and ride the bus with you back to camp, asking you to sign our sign-in sheet.

It is a 20-minute bus ride so you should be with your loved ones at Camp Tamaracouta by 9 am.

Onsite, you will visit with your family member and they can show you around. Bring some money to eat at the canteens or buy souvenirs in our trading post during your visit.

The bus will leave the camp at 1 pm (13h00) to bring visitors back to the parking lot of Ski Mont Olympia.

Right now we expect to fill one bus (48 seats). Please indicate to us if you are coming to visit by sending an email to tbeaulieu@scouts.ca so we can plan for the right number of visitors. (And please tell the participant/your child/spouse you are coming to facilitate your reunion! We will not be able to locate them as it is “free time”.)

Please note that we cannot accept visitors to the Jamboree at any other time during the week as there is NO parking on site.

Thank you for supporting scouting in our centennial year! We look forward to your visit on Sunday.
