The Atlanta Area Council is seeking girls from local Scouts BSA troops or Venturing crews who are interested in attending the Blair Atholl Patrol Jamborette in Scotland in July 2024.
The boys patrol is already full, and now they need to find some ladies!
Come explore castles and see where Braveheart came alive. Camp for ten days on the grounds of Blair Castle in a blended Scottish-American patrol in one of six international subcamps. 500 Scottish Explorer Scouts will camp alongside Scouts from around the world, working as a dual patrol of 12, in one of six subcamps. The Atlanta Contingent will consist of approximately two American patrols (6 boys, 6 girls).
Make friends with scouts from around the world. Attend a cèilidh and a country fair. Enjoy Fish ‘n Chips, Haggis, Neeps & Tatties, Stovies, and other Scottish foods and wash it all down with some Irn Bru.
