Avon Adventure will be taking place from Friday 22nd at 6pm until Monday 25th May 2020 at 4pm. The Jamboree will be held at the North Somerset Showground, The Showground, Wraxall, Bristol, BS48 1NE.

 

 

 

How much will it cost?

 

Full Jamboree Experience

For those attending the whole Jamboree (Friday 22nd – Monday 25th May), the prices are £70 for participants and £30 for leaders and service team.

Mini Jamboree Experience exclusively for Beavers

We are also able to offer shorter Jamboree experiences just for Beavers. These will run from Saturday 23rd May to Sunday 24th May 2020. The price for this is £25 for participants and £15 for leaders. Unfortunately Rainbows are unable to attend the Mini Jamboree Experience as it is over 24 hours from start to finish. This decision has been made to align with the Girlguiding Manual.

Day Visitors

We are offering a Day Visitor option- to come onto the site to get a true Jamboree experience on Saturday 23rd or Sunday 24th May 2020. The price of a Day Visitor participant will be £15 and £5 for leaders. 

 

 

 

How do I pay?

 

An email invoice will be sent out to you upon booking. This invoice will highlight your deposit amount which is 30% of your total cost and your total cost to pay by 31st March 2020.

The invoiced amount can be paid immediately if you choose. We have however designed the staged payment system to make it easier for you to pay in instalments once funds have been collected by your unit.

A reminder email will be sent regularly until the invoice has been paid. This will be automatically generated by the booking system.

Please note, if you are signing up as Service Team in the New Year, full payment will be asked for upon booking. A invoice will be sent to you with a link of where to pay. Unfortunately we do not have the option for staged payments. 

 

 

 

What is the payment schedule?

 

30th September 2019: Bookings Open
10th February 2020: 30% Deposits Due
31st March 2020: Bookings Close and Full Payment Due

 

 

 

What is the breakdown of costs?

 

 

 

 

Is my deposit refundable?

 

No. Deposits are non-refundable.  

 

 

 

Are places limited?

 

Places to the Jamboree are not limited but we encourage you to provisionally book your places onto the camp before the 10th February. We cannot guarantee places for your unit after this date.   

 

 

 

Can I book separately and still share equipment with my group?

 

If you book separately, there is an option to camp with your group or section as we understand equipment may need to be shared. If you wish to do this, please notify us by emailing bookings@avonscouts.org.uk.
