Join the Sanjamb 2021 team!

Sanjamb 2021 will be held from 15 to 23 December 2021 and the planning has already started!

This Sanjamb (South African National Jamboree) is expected to be much larger than the successful 2017 event and requires a strong management team, a huge amount of planning, and a suitable venue.

We are expecting this event to attract at least 2500 Scouts and 500 staff for 8 days of adventure, fun and a fantastic Scouting experience!

Gavin Penkin – as part of his role as National Coordinator Vision 2031 – is the Chair: Sanjamb and thus Sanjamb 2021. We are now starting to recruit the management team, who can be from any Region. Once a venue is selected more people from the host Region and other Regions will be appointed to fill all the other roles.
