Shaping The Future

The Programme Team are busy organising a whole raft of activities and entertainment to make sure all of our participants, including adults, have a great time at BrumJam 2020.

In keeping with our theme of ‘Shaping the Future’ our 6 days of daytime activities will challenge participants and give them the opportunity to develop skills and attributes to help them shape their own future.  Each participant will be able to experience new activities as well as some of your old favourites.  The Programme has been split into 6 areas or attributes with every participant at the Jamboree getting the opportunity to take part in every zone.




This day will be onsite and we will be packing this day with all sorts of activities and challenges where the only limits will be your own imagination!



Test and improve your confidence by taking on the adrenaline high wires of Blackwell Adventure mixed in with more ‘down to earth’ activities.

Everyone will get the chance to take part in 4 different activities throughout the day. They should get one adrenaline activity in the morning and one in the afternoon and one more sedate in the morning and one in the afternoon. The activities could include Zip Wires, Create Stacking, 3G Swing, Climbing, Abseiling, Karts, Tree Trek, Archery, Grass Sleds and Swimming etc.



You will need great communication when you will be competing as part of a team against the rest of your subcamp to conquer the ‘It’s a Knockout’ Challenge and be crowned Team Champions!

This will be located off site but only a short walk to our other facility at Pikes Pool Camp Site. It will be a full day of fun and laughter using a whole range of inflatable’s. with a bit of foam and water added to the mix!.



You will be spending a day really getting to know the other members of your subcamp with the BrumJam Big Breakfast, competitions and more, all taking place and organised on your own subcamp by your subcamp leaders.



As the name suggests, you will need to show courage to take full advantage of a full day at Alton Towers theme park where you will have the day to experience as many rides as possible including the all action rides- The Wicker Man, Galactica, The Smiler, Rita, Nemesis, Oblivion and Air, before returning to the site at the end of the day.



The wetter the better as we take you on an adventure to a local watersports centre.  Our coaches will leave early in the morning to take you to where our fully trained staff will make sure you have a great time on the water with everyone getting to take part in two activities from the following: Sailing, canoeing, Wind Surfing, Stand-up Paddle Boards, kayaking, and rowing.


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.

Camping Kit

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.

Fire Safety

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.

If you want help with something please tell us what you are trying to achieve and we can then find a solution. If you have concerns please come and speak to us at the Info Centre (based in The Hub) or complete a feedback card and we will try to fix things as we go.


A basic selection of tools to do some simple repairs. An adjustable spanner, a few screwdrivers, WD40 and Gaffer tape can fix most things.


For all members, adults and young people your national uniform should be worn for arrival at site, for the opening ceremony and for departure on the last day. For the closing ceremony please wear your sub-camp colours – green, red or yellow (or blue for Staff). When travelling off-site please ensure that you have your sub- camp neckerchief on.

Evening Entertainment

If you still have the energy then each evening we will have a range of evening entertainment. There will be an opening and closing ceremony and disco’s/bands, cinema, camp fires, theme nights. For those that like to wind down in the evenings, we will have separate areas for adults to recharge their batteries and a quieter zone for those who want to sit back, relax and chill during the evenings.
