The main purpose of the support team is to do everything possible to protect all Swiss participants on the way to, during the camp and on the way back from the World Scout Jamboree 2019. During the camp, the participants of the Swiss contingent should receive proper medical care. In addition to this, we provide prevention and safety for the Swiss Contingent. In case of an emergency or crises the support team is managing the crises committee.
Troop Care-Givers (TB)
We are a team of nine highly motivated people from nine different cantons in Switzerland. As responsibles for the Troop Care for all the participants, we support them before, during and after the Jamboree.
We keep our troops up to date and we are open for their requests, questions and problems always. Furthermore we are the connecting point between the troops and the Swiss Contingent Management Team (CMT). During the Jamboree, we will visit the troops every day and we will make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. Should there be any obstacles to be tackled, we will be the first to be contacted by the troops and we will provide assistance.

International Service Team (IST)
We are responsible for all needs and concerns of Swiss IST’s. We ensure the contact between the head of the delegation, Jamboree management and the IST’s and do our best that the IST can come back with many great memories from the Jamboree.
We are the ones who are responsible for all the translations and official Newsletters. Furthermore, we also keep you and your loved ones at home up to date on our website, Facebook and Instagram. Additionally, we create the merchandise such as our contingent-scarf, scout-shirt and much more. Last but not least, we are responsible to create a Photobook in the end.
Logistics are a very important part of the contingent. Getting all the necessary materials to the camp, organizing the pre- and after-trips for the whole contingent and most importantly arranging the travel to get all or Scouts safely to the campsite and back home are our main responsibilities.
You can imagine that the organization, logistics and administration of such an adventure are not cheap. All of our contingent members pay quite a lot of money to make it all happen. This is where we come in. We keep close track of all our spending and do our best to underperform on our budget. We also try to get sponsors aboard to lower the cost for each member of our contingent. After all, we have a big responsibility towards our participants to use their money as careful and effective as possible.
