Jamboree 2015

In 2015 Japan will host the 23rd World Scout Jamboree and Scouts from across the globe will gather to share in the adventure and embrace the 'spirit of unity'.

Travel Places is proud to be the official travel partner for the UK and Canadian contingents and is supporting over 4,000 participants, IST and CMT with their international travel and pre Jamboree programmes.


In total, around 30,000 young people and their leaders will have travelled from across the globe to share this fantastic and unforgettable international experience. Japan is so rich in culture and varied in experiences that with the help and organisation from Travel Places, this Jamboree will be the most memorable yet.

Planning the logistics, accommodation and programme for over 4,000 people is very challenging and delivering this in the Japanese heat must have been a real challenge. Your team were professional and resilient throughout. Travel Places played a part in the success of the Jamboree Experience and your support is appreciated not only by the CMT but by the wider contingent.
Matt Hyde, Chief Executive - The Scout Association
Right from the outset, your creative and lively approach to supporting 130 people in an unfamiliar, African environment was invaluable to myself and the wider project team. During the event itself, I would struggle to fault Travel Places. In a challenging and unfamiliar environment, the support from such knowledgeable and skilled professionals was invaluable. Also crucial, was the rapport that you were able to establish with the contingent members and management team.
Jon Bell, UK Contingents Manager
I wanted to write to you to formally thank you for all your hard work and support over the last year on the Roverway project. I know that at times things were quite tough and you, and your team, often had to respond to late changes and last minute requests. Thank you for your patience, flexibility, advice and support throughout this project. The dedication you showed throughout was incredible. I know I speak for all the members of the Contingent Management Team and the International Office when I say that we could not have delivered the event without you.
Roverway CMT Team
Thank you to Travel Places for your amazing organisation, professionalism and customer service throughout the two year journey – we quite literally couldn’t have done it without you!
Jessica Plumtree, Unit 18 Scout Leader
Working with Travel Places certainly enhanced the experience we had. The staff were helpful and acted in a timely way to any query we had. Whether it was before our departure when they arranged wheelchairs at all of the airports for us, or on our departure from Tokyo when they helped with our overflowing luggage, their help was invaluable. We have begun planning our next adventure with Travel Places – I hope it will be the first of many!
Cath Wright, Unit 48 Scout Leader
