Things To Bring

We thought it might be useful if we posted a list of “Things To Bring”. We have received a lot of useful ideas through the years from some very experienced campers.

  • Lawnchair
  • A Black Sharpie Marker (autographs)
  • Blanket or Tarp for ground cover
  • Flashlights Sun Glasses/Sunscreen/Hat (for the hot and sunny days)
  • Moist Towelettes/Baby Wipes (for your trips to the portable toilets and also great for washing your hands after eating barbecue ribs!)
  • Rain Coat – Warm/Dry Clothes (for the cool evenings or rainy days)
  • Cooler with Drinks and Snacks (no glass containers please)
  • Comfortable Shoes (Havelock Country Jamboree is a very big place and you’ll very likely do a lot of walking)
  • Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc. For when the sun gets to you. (some people also bring Pepto Bismol/Gravol/Visine)
  • Camera and Batteries
  • Food (Be sure you have facilities to cook your food. If you have a generator, most generators have an outlet to plug in an electric frying pan or a hotplate. If you don’t have a generator you can bring a barbecue to use for cooking purposes) Remember we provide rough camping which means no hydro or water hook-ups available. NO OPEN FLAME FIRES are permitted at the Jamboree. For information regarding use of generators or Fires, please see our “Rules” page.
  • First Aid Kit (Just in case of an emergency, it is helpful if you have brought a few things such as bandages, etc.)
  • It is very important to bring a desire to have a great time.
