AJ2013 Souvenir DVD
The final cut for the DVD should be arriving to us for approval by the end of next week, therefore at this stage I would allow another few weeks after that for the AJ2013 to be in your mailboxes.
Thanks for your patience and understanding, whilst every effort was made to get this to you as fast as possible unfortunately my health issues and work commitments have stalled things more than we had expected.
AJ2013 Marketing and Communications Director
It is a sign that all things must come to an end!
Where to from here?
So you loved AJ2013? Want to do this sort of an event again? So what are my options?
Goodbye from AJ2013
Over the past ten days we have experienced together the 23rd
Australian Jamboree, seeing the smiles on the Scouts faces indicates to me they have had a great time. I have spoken to many Scouts and not one has indicated they did not enjoy the Jamboree.
I would like to thank all the Scouts for their behaviour on the offsite Activities, we have received many positive comments from the public, and you have all been great ambassadors to the Scout Movement
To all the Leaders and Volunteers huge thanks, many of you have worked double shifts and have not complained, I have received many comments that we are here for the Scouts and seeing them enjoying the Jamboree is what it is all about.
Finally I wish you all a safe journey home and will hopefully see you again in the future at either a Scouting Event or somewhere in this great Nation we have
Enjoy your Scouting
Pieter Van Der Kamp (Smokey)
Chief Director AJ2013
As we come to the close of the AJ2013 I believe we have lived up to our theme of Dream it, Live it. As I have moved around the camping grounds, the mall and the activities off site I have met so many scouts, leaders and volunteers that have shown me how you have all been living by your Scout Promise and Law.
As you pack up over the next few days and on your return home remember those who have worked so hard to make this Jamboree so successful and assisted you all participate in such a great event. I am proud to be the Camp Chief and can say wholeheartedly that you have enhanced the profile of Scouting in Maryborough and in Queensland as well as in your home state or country by such great behaviour.
I wish you all a safe journey home and hope that you all have very happy memories and new friendships from AJ2013. Maybe our paths will cross again in the future so please reintroduce yourselves to me if that happens.
Good Scouting and have fun sharing you experiences and memories on your return home.
Mrs Kirsty Brown OAM
Chief Commissioner of Scouts Queenlands and AJ2013 Camp Chief.
Goodbye from Fraser Coast Council
On behalf of Council and the Fraser Coast Community, I would like to congratulate everyone involved in the 2013 Australian Scout Jamboree.
The jamboree was the first large scale youth event that we have hosted here on the Fraser Coast, and the site of the Maryborough Showgrounds transformed into a virtual ‘scout city’ truly had to be seen to be believed.
In addition, it was a real privilege to see so many scouts, scout leaders and volunteers, enjoying all the Fraser Coast has to offer, from the brilliant blue water of Hervey Bay to the beautiful, heritage streetscapes of Maryborough.
While our region is no doubt reaping the benefits of the 2013 Australian Scout Jamboree, the feedback I have received from all parts of the Fraser Coast community has been nothing short of overwhelming.
On behalf of the entire region I congratulate all the participants at AJ2013 and extend a warm welcome for you to return.
Now you have experienced our little piece of paradise, why not make your next holiday on the Fraser Coast.

I look forward to seeing you again soon.
