Each night during the Jamboree we asked one of the international staff into the studio to talk about Scouting in their home country. One of these was Peter Omondi from Kenya. As well as his Scouting Peter is involved in a Peace Project centered around 7-a-side football. We'll be keeping in touch with Peter to see how all this goes....

Held near Chelmsford, the Essex International Janboree is the biggest Scout & Guide event in the UK this year with more than 6,500 young people attending along with their Leaders and almost 2000 staff. Over 100 activities were provided on site to participants who came from 32 countries.
Scout Radio was again on site providing a vibrant and exciting radio station throughout the event from a studio in the “village” at the centre of things. When Scouts and Guides from more than 30 countries arrived JAM FM was already on air and rapidly becoming the soundtrack to the Jamboree.
Using the latest developments in the Scout Radio studio equipment JAM FM broadcast for eight days with live programmes from 6am until midnight. Alongside studio based output were outside broadcasts from all the ac...

Fancy yourself as a DJ or Radio Presenter? Well try The Takeover!
Every day during Run To The Fun between 10am and 12:20pm we offer the opportunity for small groups (around 5) to come together, work with us to plan their show and then broadcast it live on the radio!
Because of demand we normally book slots so head to the radio station to book yours when on site - or you can book in advance by emailing [email protected]
Each session is around 40 minutes long. This involves 20 minutes planning and then your 20 minute show. You can talk about what you're up to on camp, why you love scouts, and even pick your songs!
All shows are recorded and uploaded onto the JamFM website, so you, your friends and your family can listen again afterwards.
Every Takeover presenter will receive a J...
Run to The Fun 3
This year Devon County Scouts are running a week long Jamboree based in Mount Edgecumbe Park just outside Plymouth. All the “normal” activities are on offer (including Jam FM run by Scout Radio!) but also a day with the Royal Navy working at the Disaster School learning how to fight a real fire on a ship and how to stop a ship from sinking!
The Run to The Fun 3 Jamboree runs from 25th July to the 1st August and bookings stay open until the end of February. The South West in summer...it's got to be good hasn’t it?!
Damean Miller is the man in charge of the Activity programme for the Jamboree and he spoke to Scout Radio’s Roger Thorne:

BBC Radio Norfolk and Jam FM 107.2 have completed a simulcast on both stations this morning. BBC Radio Norfolk visited Norjam, the Norfolk Scout & Guide International Jamboree, on the Norfolk Showground as part of their Sunday morning Treasure Quest show.
One of the clues they needed to find was located in the Jam FM studios on site. Jam FM is a RSL radio station for the week long Jamboree run by Scout Radio.
Kayleigh Poacher was presenting the breakfast show on Jam FM while BBC Radio Norfolk’s Kathrine Nash hunted for the clue. For a short time both shows were broadcast on both radio stations.
Martin Steers, Scout Radio Manager, said “it’s great that the BBC and local community organisations are working together in this way. Scout Radio was set up to provide radio stations for lar...
More than 6,500 scouts and guides from around the world arrived in Maidstone for the Kent International Jamboree to the sound of Scout Radio blasting out party tunes around the site to get the action packed week started.
The Scout Radio team had arrived a few days in advance, to set up the studio in a prime location opposite the main stage. After a few weeks of scorching sun we were battling to get pegs in the ground to secure our towering mast, but a few days on and we were battling to keep the wind and rain from inside our studio! Setting up a radio studio in a field has some challenges.
Jam FM was ready for a very busy week, covering every aspect of the fun filled activities both on and off site at Kent International Jamboree, with a playlist of summer anthems and old favourites to k...
Scout Radio were in a prime location to run an FM station at this huge jamboree event, we were in the market square in the centre of the action. Around 10,000 people came together for this international camp and it felt as though Scout Radio spoke to most of them over the week. We were live on air from 7am to midnight every day, speaking to organisers, visitors, participants and playing some lively summer tunes to create a fun filled atmosphere. We also had young people on air creating their own shows, picking the tunes and telling us what it is like to be a Scout or Guide at this amazing event.
Every night Scout Radio broadcast all the action from the main stage, the talent shows, the band performances and the opening and closing ceremonies, which gave all involved an even bigger audienc...
