Welcome to our Youth Camp Chiefs...

Over the past two months, the KIJ Management team have been presented with this amazing group of Young People who will be aged 18-25 during next summers Jamboree. Over the last few weeks we have started to develop them in their roles, and to make their appearance much more visible.

Jack and Laura will head up the team - working closely with Amy, Lucy & Amy as their assistants. Chloe, Jack, Jess & Tommy have been assigned to certain departments working closely with the directorates to help enhance the Youth Shaped development. We hope you will join us in wishing them well in their new roles!

The whole team look forward to working with you to make sure the Jamboree will be an amazing adventure for all. They are 
available to come to your section meetings to show what KIJ is about and to get ideas from your young people to develop the Jamboree experience. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like them to come and see you, or if you have any ideas.

A Change to our Camp Chief

Following Dean Hardings newly appointed role of County Commisioner for Kent, he has had to step back from the Camp Chief role to allow him to support the Jamboree and County. It has been decided that Dean will pass the KIJ Necker back to Andy Trill - Camp Chief from KIJ13 to lead the way. We would like to thank Dean for all the hard work he has put in so far and wish him the best of luck with his new role. Andy with the rest of the Management and Support Team will continue to develop the adventures and activities already in the making.
