Applications for Sydney Jamboree 2018 will close on 31st March, 2018. Full payment for the Jamboree is due at that time for those who apply in March OR the final payment is due for those who have registered and maintained the three partial payments.
Activity (Adventures and Expedition) allocations will be made using a random ballot system and girls will be advised as soon as possible in April 2018. Any girls who choose, and are allocated, an activity which incurs further cost will have the fee added to their invoice at that time.
If you have applied for the Bridge Climb you will be allocated to this activity in addition to your Adventure or Expedition.
Participants who would like to make further payments or more regular payments should log in to their database invoice page, choose ‘additional payment’ and type in the amount being paid in the appropriate place. The database will automatically allocate this payment to your account and show the outstanding figure at the bottom.
