How big is your world?
JOTA (Jamboree Of The Air) is similar to other jamborees but instead of all
the Scouts and Guides gathering at a single location, there are many stations
around the world with each linked by radio. It is the largest Guiding and
Scouting event worldwide and attracts over half a million participants each
You can look forward to on-site crafts, codes to crack, outdoor games and challenges as well as
ham radios so you can talk to Guides and Scouts at other JOTA stations in
different towns, states or even countries!
The Winston Hills JOTA station is annually visited by over 100 Girl Guides and
their leaders from across Sydney so you can look forward to making some new
friends on site as well as over the airwaves.
