Participants should be careful with their belongings at the Jamboree. Remember that the excitement of the Jamboree will distract you from your regular routine, so make a habit of checking your daypack and pockets for your most important belongings, whenever you move from one location to another. You do not want to leave items behind at a camp, action center, trading shop, arena show, exhibit area, or anywhere else.
Participants should label all their gear, clothing, and expensive personal items such as phones, cameras, and other digital devices with their name and Jamboree unit number. This will make it easier for items to be returned to their owners. Take particular care with items like eyeglasses, which may be difficult or impossible to mark with your name and unit. If possible, take a picture of your Jamboree ID with your phone, tablets, and/or camera, and make it your lock screen image. This may help us return your device if we are able to see this photo when turning on the device.
Each day, the Lost & Found Office can be found near the bus stop at the Summit Center, with a smaller satellite station located at each base camp HQ. The office hours are from 09:00 to 17:00. Participants looking for lost items may come to this center to look for their item. Due to high traffic, there will also be a short-term Lost and Found near Scott Summit Center; nothing will be stored here for more than 12 hours.
The main Lost and Found will be open from 09:00 to 18:00 every day of the Jamboree. Scott Summit Center Lost and Found will be open from 09:00 to 18:00 every day of the Jamboree.
Expensive items like electronics will require verification and a signature for release.
