To Jamboree 2018 Participants attending Victoria Contingent Camp on Friday 25-27th May 2018 in Seymour……….
There is a few jamboree participants attending the camp from our unit. Carpooling is going to be our best option as Seymour camp is approximately 160kms one way. I have had a few parents indicate they can car pool a few guides Friday night & a few parents who are available Sunday for car pooling.
I have to pick up Jess early on Sunday due to another girl guide commitment in Moorabbin from 1pm-7pm. I can bring home a few guides if they are willing to leave at 10:30am Sunday (if so, you need to advise the contingent leader in advance).
Please comment here if you can assist with car pooling either Friday or Sunday.

This Sunday Carrum Girl Guides are running egg & bacon stall at Bonbeach Farmers Market – if you can spare an hour to come down & assist we would be greatly appreciated. PR & fundraising are our aim. Being present in the community assist our public profile & raising money towards the 2018 Jamboree (guides who are 10 or above in the year of 2018 – September 2018 in Sydney is International Jamboree – trip of a lifetime! Approximately $1800 to attend!)
Any parents who assist in fundraising between now & Jamboree will be eligible to a fundraising portion (based on contributions to each event).
If you would assist us this weekend please add your name in comments on this blog post so that everyone can see the times so we don’t have everyone turn up at same time!
Myself, Sam & Jan will be there. Guides in attendance are asked to wear uniform plus hat for SunSmart (no sash). Our presence in the community is important to growing our profile.
