Scout and guide shops
The Danish scout and guide associations bring their own shops with camp equipment, uniforms etc. The shops also sell Jamboree merchandise - t-shirts, cups and much else.
Ice cream, candy and hot dogs
At the neighbourhood squares as well as other places throughout the Jamboree site there will be hot dog stands, ice cream shops and minimarkets with a wide range of sweets. The hot dog stands and the ice cream shops will be moved around at different places of the Jamboree so that everybody will have a chance to visit them.
Cultural cafes at the neighbourhood squares
The vision of Jamboree Denmark 2012 is that we will change the world, meet each other, and develop ourselves. We want to use the Jamboree to make the world smaller, to get to know each other better across national and cultural boarders. The cultural cafes will help spread this message.
At all neighbourhood squares as well as at the Central Jamboree Square there will be cultural cafes. The cafes will have names like Bhutan – Marahan – Solvang – Europa – Route 66, and they will have different themes accordingly. They will offer many types of take-away food and a wide range of other types of food.
They will be open from 6.30am offering coffee, breakfast rolls and warm cinnamon rolls. It will also be possible to buy lunch, dinner, pancakes, cake and much more throughout the day, and from 21pm it will be possible to buy beer or wine for persons aged 18+ at some of the cafes. Other cultural cafes do not sell alcohol, but non-alcoholic beer or wine instead.
At some of the cultural cafes there will be a ‘youth area’ where participants under 18 years can meet up. Keep an eye out for the opening hours of these areas!
The cultural cafes will be the place to meet family and friends and enjoy the atmosphere with the group and meet new friends. There will surely be plenty of life and good vibes all day in the cafe areas.
The cultural cafes will also be where the international guests will have the possibility of showing how they do Scouting and Guiding and how it will be to visit their home country. There will be films, music, entertainment, talks, and an Internet area. For that we need your help! We would like to encourage you to bring something that can tell the other Jamboree participants about you. There will be room for exhibitions, games, songs, dances etc. it is all up to you. When you know what will be your contribution, please write an email to email@example.com, and we will make sure that there is a space and a timeslot for your contribution. You can also contact us on this email address if you have any questions.
Every neighbourhood square will have a minimarket selling crisps, toothbrushes, washing powder, plastic bags, flour, yeast etc. At the Central Jamboree Square there will be a big supermarket where you can buy most of the things that you may need. If you cannot find what you are looking for, make sure to ask the supermarket staff; they may be able to help get it for you.
