From the 6th to the 13th of July in 2013, there will be a memorable National Scout Jamboree in Stavanger with the aim to host 15 000 scouts from Norway and abroad. We're thinking BIG, and look forward to present a week packed with experiences, spectacular nature, good food and a lot of new friends.
Stavanger is located in an area called North-Jæren, in the County of Rogaland. The city is the 4th largest in Norway, and you can get here by bus, plane, boat, train, car or even by bike if you're up for it. Rogaland is known as the food county of Norway, and with good reason. It has good access to a variety of foods and short distances will provide the Scouts with fresh, healthy and exclusive world class raw materials to cook with. Mmmm!
The National Scout Jamboree will be located on fields close to the sea. The area is most known from the Battle in Hafrsfjord, where Harald Hårfagre ("Fairhair") put several small kings out of action. This was the start of the unification of Norway in the year 872. The camp site has mostly flat areas, and is located in one of the largest urbanisations in Stavanger. The city centre of Stavanger, airport and railwaystation are only 15 minutes away.
