How does the weather affect the activities?
Please note that we are unable to pre-order the weather!!! Our wet-weather programme will be same as the dry programme so please be prepared and dress for the conditions!! We only stop if there is a compromise to safety. We will all have a fantastic camp whatever the weather!
Items to bring to BrumJam
We are not going to list everything that you need to bring to BrumJam as you are all experienced campers so you won’t find a full kit list here. You all know to bring tents, marquees, catering equipment, tables and chairs etc. Hopefully this information will help you to prepare your Group for the Camp.
All equipment should be checked before departure for the jamboree – it’s amazing how many groups forget the poles or pegs for the marquee or patrol tents! And it’s a good idea to bring some boundary rope and stakes to mark out your pitch and entrance.
BrumJam will be having a main camp flag break every morning at 09.00 on Upper Paddock. We will fly a flag for each Country represented on BrumJam. You are welcome to attend however please be aware of activity departure times. The best days to attend are when you are doing The Imagination Zone or The Confidence Zone which are both based on site.
If you have a Scout Group /Troop or Girl Guide Unit ‘’carrying type’’ flag on a pole then please bring it to the opening ceremony.
Please bring a fire blanket, fire bucket and fire extinguisher for your kitchen area.
Radio Station @ BrumJam
Please bring a portable radio as we will be broadcasting live each day with music, news and updates so if you have a radio bring it to listen at your sub-camp. Tune in at 87.7FM!
Sense Of Humour & Patience
Please remember to pack a sense of humour and some patience. BrumJam will be a busy and tiring week for everybody. We are all volunteers and we all want to have a great time on BrumJam. There
will be busy times especially during arrivals and the first few days of activities while everybody settles in.
