Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI) and Jamboree on the Air (JOTA)

JotaThe Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) is a virtual global camp. It is held every year in the third full weekend of October together with JOTI.  Scouts meet on the “air” with the help of radio amateurs. The first JOTA was held in 1957 and has been a big success ever since. The last years the availability and possiblities of internet make JOTI more suitable for the core objective of the event: let scouts meet and do things together. Amateur radio remains a very fascinating hobby, which will arouse interest of many scouts. Because of the need of specialized knowledge and equipment the JOTA can only be organized with the help of radio amateurs. Your National JOTA Coordinator will be able to tell you how to find a radio amateur.

Are you planning to a Scouting Visit Abroad  ?

If you are planning a Visit Abroad yourselves there have been some recent changes. There is a new 2-part process to ensure that each trip receives as much help & support they need in order to run their adventure! One of the big changes is now that any member of the Scout Association who undertakes a trip abroad must complete the new process. Even if it is just one adult.

What is the process ?

StageAction/Information

2At the very start of your planning complete Part A of the Visit Abroad form and sent it to your relevant Commissioner (DC/CC). This will allow them to identify training/support needs and also grant outline approval to continue
3Your relevant commissioner will then notify you and the ACCI of their approval to continue planning or their reasons for rejection
