A few weeks before the Camp begins, Sections will be assigned a number of camp sites based on numbers of participants and Scouters registered. PLEASE NOTE: Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers will typically be in different areas of the campsite so sharing resources between Sections will be, at best, challenging. Every Section/Patrol should be self-contained. However, if this is a issue for groups due to sharing camping resources, every effort will be made to help. Please communicate any such requests as soon as possible to the organizing committee.
There are picnic tables on each site. A rake and shovel would be good items to bring along. Groups are permitted to rake and groom their sites, but not cut down trees.
Please remember that cargo/camper trailers cannot be kept on campsites. They will be parked in the large parking lot for the duration of the Jamboree.
Though there will be opportunity for gear drop off at the site on Thursday. Beginning Friday, vehicles with camp gear will not be permitted to drive directly to their campsite. Equipment may be dropped off on the road by the Supermarket until 1 pm. By 1 pm, all vehicles are required to be off the camp roads and in the parking lot. All youth and Scouters should be prepared to carry their gear at least a half kilometer from the parking lot should the need arise. A limited number of hand carts are available to move gear, however, for convenience, groups may bring their own carts/wagons.
Gear lists for Sections, patrols/lairs are posted on the Jamboree Web site under separate headings.
No vehicles will be allowed on the inner roads past the parking lot. An exception will be made for if you arrive before 12pm on the Friday. Two hand carts are available to ferry your gear if needed.
Offers of Service will be prompted to pay at the time of registration. We will only be accepting credit card payments through PayPal (no PayPal account creation is necessary). Please contact us if you had an issue.
All other registration fees will emailed to group commissioners on April 31st, May 31st, and June 24th. Invoices can be paid through PayPal (no PayPal account creation is necessary).

May 31st to June 24th: Full refund less a $50 administrative fee.
After June 24th: No refunds will be given.
Cabins are only available to Offers of Service, providing space is available.

The following note to Group Commissioners went out in February:
Are you looking to book bus transportation to and from Camp Nor-Wes for PJ’19?
(Friday, July 5 and Monday, July 8)
Groups must arrange their own transportation; however, you can pair up with other groups to ensure your bus is as full as possible. Exact arrival and departing times to/from Camp Nor’Wes will be provided by Camp Security (roughly arrival at 2 p.m., departure at noon).
Two companies have been contacted for quotes on a 24-seat school bus, max. capacity, 72 passengers (preferably 48 passengers). Note: The quotes are for transportation from the metro area, but this information may be of use to other groups.
Vardy’s Villa Limited (out of Clarenville) has quoted $1,800 plus HST = $2,070. This is the company used for the last two PJs.
(Dennis Vardy, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Bursey’s Taxi & Bus Services has quoted $1,695 plus HST = $1,949.25
(Evan Bursey, email@example.com or 834-5510)
Need a smaller vehicle?
Bursey’s can also provide a 20-24 passenger mini bus for $1,195 plus HST = $1,374.25.
General notes (Both companies)
The bus will stop in Goobies for bathroom break/stretch.
(Just a quick stop, suggest no store purchases to be made to avoid delays).
Passengers are allowed to bring their own allergy-free snacks and Scouters will ensure bus is clean before leaving.
Gear (camp duffle bags, tents) is allowed on the bus, but this will reduce the number of seats available for passengers. Gear will be stored in the back and moving forward, depending on the seats needed.
If your group books a bus, please contact Charles Cook, (firstname.lastname@example.org) to coordinate arrival/departure times on the camp road.
