Register as a staff member

The Haarlem Jamborette wouldn’t be possible without the effort and dedication of many volunteers.

In several teams, these people work before, during and after the camp, organising activities for the participants, working behind the scenes in one of the supporting teams or helping with setting up the camp and taking it down again. Many members of staff from previous camps will agree that it’s hard work, but also a lot of fun, not to mention the lifelong friends that you will make!

Because we want to limit the amount of staff members, it won’t be possible to work as a part-time staff member. This means that we expect you to be available during the whole camp, including a few days before the opening ceremony and the day after the closing ceremony. Therefore, for members of staff the camp dates are from Friday 26th July up to Wednesday 7th August inclusive.

If you have children that you would like to bring with you to the camp, you will be able to bring these to the Jambo Kids Club during the times the activities are running. Here, they will be entertained by certified staff members. This will give you the opportunity to do your own work without any worries.

Every day, the team in the staff restaurant prepares breakfast, lunch and dinner for you, so there is no need for you to cook for yourself. Tea and coffee are also provided.

Camp fee staff

For staff members, the camp fee for the Jamborette is €125,-. Children of staff members pay a reduced fee. For this fee you get the following:

  • A place for your tent
  • Meals, coffee and tea
  • Camp scarf
  • 2 Camp t-shirts
  • Jambo mug
  • Final party

Your registration will only be final after applying for and submitting a Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag (VOG – CRB check) to the organisation. You can apply for this for free through Scouting Nederland. If you already have a VOG registered in Scouts Online, you will be able to use this one for the Jamborette too under certain conditions. You will get more information about this in the summer of 2018.
