Market Day

The Jamboree Market Day is on Saturday 9 January, in conjunction with Super Saturday and aims to help Scouts have fun and meet new people, while running a great Troop stall and compete with other troops to make the most Jam Dollars in their Sub Camp!

Market Day will run in two sessions:

Morning: 9:30am – 11:30am – Even numbered troops will be running stalls and odd numbered troops will be out buying up big!
Afternoon: 2:00pm – 4:00pm – Odd numbered troops will be running their stalls, and even numbered troops will be spending till their heart’s content!

For half of the day your Troop will be running a stall to sell items. For the other half of the day you will be visiting stalls around the site and spending your Jam Dollars. The more money that changes hands the better and the more fun everyone will have, so make sure you get out and spend up big! It is intended that each person spends all their Jam Dollars.

A Market Day mall area will be established and managed in each Sub Camp by the Sub Camp team. Space will be allocated to each troop before the start of the activity. Each Troop will set up their stall ready to start selling at the beginning of their allocated session time.

Jam Dollars will be distributed from the Sub Camp to each Troop on Market Day morning. Market Day is during Future Scout Day so we will have lots of visitors – and the Cubs and Joeys will also have Jam Dollars to spend!
