The famous Auchengillan Jamboree is back for 2013! It's never to early to book this in your diary so read on for more information.

Auchengillan Jamboree 2013 is an International camp for members of the Scout and Guide movements.

We aim to build on the success of AJ09 by bringing young people together from all over the world for a week of fun, friendship and outdoor activities.

Location

Auchengillan is a well-established 120 acre International Outdoor Centre in Stirlingshire.

It is lightly wooded and set amongst farmland with panoramic views of the surrounding hills and lochs, including Loch Lomond and yet is only a few miles from the centre of Glasgow.
