Pacific Jamboree 2024 announces expanded Participant capacity and the reopening of Participant registration
Due to the overwhelming demand for Participant registrations at Pacific Jamboree 2024, the Camp Chair and Organizing Committee are excited to announce additional registration capacity for Participant Patrols. With this added capacity comes a fourth Participant Subcamp.
The PJ 2024 Organizing Committee was overwhelmed with the fantastic response to registration and has since been working hard behind the scenes organizing everything to make the jamboree a success. The committee realized many Scouts from across BC, Canada, and the world were disappointed when they were unable to secure a spot, and the waitlist quickly grew. After some careful deliberation and additional planning, the decision was made to open a fourth Participant Subcamp to allow additional Scouts to attend PJ 2024.
Registration will reopen on February 1, 2024, at pacificjamboree.ca. A total of 50 Patrol spaces, or 500 individual spaces, will be made available. When either maximum is reached, registration will close, and a limited waitlist may be formed.
Patrols currently on the waitlist will be contacted by the PJ 2024 registration team with the next steps in completing their Patrol’s registration.
Please note, this registration opening is for new Patrols only. All requests to add members to existing patrols will be denied.
Be sure to keep an eye on pacificjamboree.ca for the latest information and to access the registration portal.
Behind the scenes, the PJ 2024 Organizing Committee and all departments are working quickly and efficiently to bring all aspects of the jamboree together. This includes the Program team working to increase capacity for the additional Participants.
The PJ 2024 Organizing Committee appreciates the incredible interest in the jamboree and appreciates your continued patience as we work through this unprecedented Pacific Jamboree growth.
Questions regarding the additional Patrol spaces can be directed to the PJ 2024 Camp Chair, Andrew Dallas at email@example.com.
Reminder – If you have youth members in your patrol still registered in Cubs, please note that those youth need to be registered in Troop by April 1st 2024. (All participants must be at least 11 by July 6, 2024).
Cubs working on their Seeonee Award can finish the final requirements while registered with Troop.
It is important that all members of a Jamboree patrol, including those currently in Cubs, have the opportunity to spend time together as a patrol in settings that will allow them to practice camping skills and team building prior to the Jamboree.

Participant Registration for PJ 2024 is now closed!
Participant Registration is now closed for Pacific Jamboree 2024!
The response for PJ 2024 has been unprecedented and participant spaces reached capacity in a record time. More than 2200 participants will congregate at Camp Barnard next July.
This record-breaking registration rush has also maxed out the registration waitlist. No further participant waitlist registrations will be accepted. As cancellations and patrol adjustments happen over the next days and weeks, some participant patrols will be contacted and moved from the waitlist in order of registration. Unfortunately, the registration team cannot tell you where you sit on the waitlist and if/when you may move to the registered list. Patrols on the waitlist may remove their interest at any time, and if any payments have been made, will receive a full refund.
If your patrol is registered (i.e. you did not receive notice you’re on the waitlist), please be patient as our registration team works diligently to fine-tune the process, reviewing your forms and confirming your patrol number. In the meantime, please ensure all of your youth and Scouters have entered their health and contact information correctly. Also, ensure Scouters have uploaded an appropriate photograph and have completed all training requirements.
Offers of Service (OOS) registration remains open with many roles to be filled across the jamboree. Registration confirmations will be sent in due course.
The PJ 2024 registration team appreciates your continued patience.
