Volunteer Team

ScotJam 2022 returns to Scout Adventures Lochgoilhead this summer for two awesome weeks of adventures and outdoor activities for Cubs & Scouts.

  • ScotJam for Cubs – Monday 11th to Friday 15th July 2022
  • ScotJam for Scouts – Saturday 16th to Saturday 23rd July 2022

We have participants attending ScotJam from most Regions in Scotland. Most of these participants are attending as individuals, but there are also some attending as part of a Pack, Troop or Unit contingent.

Adult Volunteers are crucial to delivery of ScotJam 2022. We are currently recruiting Adult Volunteers to join the volunteer team for ScotJam 2022. Below is an outline of the roles that we are recruiting for.

  • Pastoral
    A group of leaders, formed into small teams, usually pairs, who supervise and care for the participants, particularly at mealtimes, during the night, and when not supervised on activities. Each team is assigned an accommodation building, and the team are present in the building overnight. Each accommodation building sleeps between 14 and 20 participants.
  • Extended Care
    This team is responsible for secondary response to any health, wellbeing or first aid involving a participant. They work with the centre staff, admin team and pastoral team to provide support. This may include arranging and accompanying participants who are required to go off site for treatment; supervising and helping to care for a young person who is unable to take part in an activity session; providing an additional adult to ensure a ‘1 to 1’ is avoided.
  • Evening Programme
    The team is responsible for managing and/or coordinating the delivery of the late evening programme – after the centre’s early evening programme. Evening programme activities may include: a campfire, wide games, a cinema night, a disco, etc.

ScotJam is an amazing experience for everybody, participants, staff and volunteers. It exemplifies what we do best in Scouting, providing amazing, adventurous experiences and bring people together who would otherwise not have an opportunity to meet.
