22nd World Scout Jamboree

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will take place in the fields of Rinkaby, Kristianstad, Skåne in southern Sweden in 2011. The jamboree theme will be Simply Scouting. In 2001, a national Jamboree took place here with 26,500 scouts, and another national Jamboree of Sweden, Jiingijamborii was held here from 14-22 July in 2007 for the scouts.

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree lies near the coast on sandy ground surrounded by pine woods. Sandy earth helps rain water run off, and thus there is no risk of any parts of the jamboree camp area being waterlogged for the scouts. The campsite is approximately 1.5 km by 1.5 km. Small areas of forest divide the campsite into smaller fields. The temperature is varying, average day temperature is 22 degrees Celsius, while average night temperature is 17 degrees Celsius. The sun rises at 5 o'clock in the morning (05:00). Sunset is at 9 in the evening (or 21:00). Drinking water is available from wells at the field.

There is already an extensive water and power system in the ground for the scouts, dimensioned with the 2011 World Scout Jamboree in mind. In the southern part of the field there is space for the scout arena with a natural amphitheatre. There are sandy beaches near the camp area for the scouts with sand dunes formed by the wind, creating their own unique landscape. The scouts of the Jamboree in Sweden will have organized shuttle buses to the beach.
