Εφορεία Γενικής Εφορείας:

In summer 2022, Scouts of Greece (Soma Hellinon Proskopon - SHP) is organizing the 6th National Explorers Jamboree, in Roumeli; a place not far away from Athens in Central Greece. The Greek Scout Movement is celebrating 20 years Anniversary since the original Elpida Jamboree in Zagori region in 2002. We would like to welcome Scouts from other countries to take part in this celebration and join us in this experience, creating true long-lasting friendships along the way. With EuroJam not taking place this year, we are offering you an opportunity to visit a dream destination, network with other Scouts and experience Scouting at its best. 

Dates and Place  

The 6th National Greek Explorers Jamboree will take place from Wednesday 3nd until Saturday 13th August 2022 close to Mountain Oiti, in Central Greece, just around 215 km from Athens. This is a mountainous area surrounded by beautiful nature. The different teams will have the chance to walk in the 4 different mountains surrounding that area: Gkiona, Oiti, Vardousia and the legendary Parnassos.  The Jamboree arrival day is on Wednesday August 3rd, while the departure is on Saturday August 13th. Please note that on the evening of Monday August 8th, the Opening Ceremony of the Jamboree will take place in the central camp close to Mt. Oiti. If you wish to explore with your group any other parts of Greece, such as Athens or Thessaloniki, before or after the Jamboree, we will gladly assist you to organize it and provide accommodation suggestions at a low cost, in one of our Scout Centers around the country 


Participants for the Jamboree can either be Explorers, between 15 and 18 years old, or adult volunteers that will lead their national delegation. After registration, delegations will be part of a bigger team with other Scouts from Greece and abroad.  

In case some of the adult volunteers of your National Scout Organization are interested in participating only by themselves, we offer the possibility for them to join our Organizing Teams as member of the International Support Team.  

More information about the costs related with each one of the above categories of participation can be found below. 

Cost of Participation 

The participation fee has been arranged to be the lowest possible, to allow as many young people as possible, to participate in this celebration of Scouting and Active Citizenship. The Explorers and adult leaders participating in each Delegation should pay the total amount of €200. In case some individual adult members of your National Scout Organization are interested to participate as members of the International Support Team of Elpida 2022, the cost for them will be €100, as we value their interest in supporting us to make this huge event a reality 

Those amounts include all costs for accommodation, food, souvenirs from the event, and transportation during the event. Please note that transportation from the airport or any other place within to the campsite will not be included on that amount and it is up to the national delegation to arrange their travel accordingly.
