Activities, twinning process, and “Venite et vincite!”
You have already received or you will get soon information about your constellation and your bivouac from your green branch national commissioner. With this information, you will know the program you are expected to follow at the respective days of the camp. Please be attentive to that. All details concerning the program and any help for preparing the Eurojam 2014 are found in your “Preparatory Booklet for Unit Leaders”.
There are five activities for which your guides and scouts will be the creators and masters. This means that you must encourage your patrol leaders to bring their creative ideas, their openness and their sociability in order to succeed. The five activities to be prepared by your patrols:
- Venite et laborate! / Come and work! - Twinned technical workshops.
- Venite et gaudete! / Come and rejoice! - Twinned dinner and campfire.
- Venite et cognoscite! / Come and get to know! - Huge exchange day.
- Venite et ludite! / Come and play! - Big games.
- Venite et adiungite! / Come and join! - Optional twinned activites.
Venite et Laborate! Venite et Gaudete!
After March 7th– After having gotten information from the registration team, the green branch national commissioners will send you an e-mail with information about the twinnings of your patrols for Venite et Laborate! (twinning of two patrols) and Venite et Gaudete! (twinning of three patrols). Encourage your patrols to start the twinning rather sooner than later: by letter, by e-mail, by skype, by social networks, etc. Your patrols should prepare a presentation introducing their patrol, their meetings, and/or their games. They should also ask questions and get to know their brothers and sisters from other countries. Do not be afraid of the language barrier as there are so many ways to share emotions and information via visual media as well.
Venite et Adiungite!
From March 1st to 16th– The website (http://quipo.uigse-fse.org) allows you (as unit leaders) to submit your proposals for optional activities, which you have to be decided by your Court of Honour together with your patrol leaders. On March 16th the registration team disables new proposals and modifications.
From March 23rd to April 10th– Your unit can see the proposals and decides in your Court of Honour together with your patrol leaders, which activity you want to join.
On April 15th – After having gotten information from the registration team, you receive an e-mail confirming your twinning for Venite et Adiungite!
Please be aware of your twinning so that you can meet the leaders of the other units at the Unit Leaders’ Camp in May in order to discuss and arrange personally the details of all three activities.
Venite et vincite!
The adventure is about to start! Thousands of scouts are looking forward to the big “Game of the Games”. In total there will be 150 big games prepared by unit leaders like you. The patrols from Europe and North America are called to choose their game afterwards. Be excited who will choose your game! You have already joined a preparation team? Various topics are possible. It is up to you to define it: The Knights of the Round Table seeking for Graal, gold seekers crossing their paths of Wild West, Da Vinci meeting Tolkien's characters will become realities very soon.
By February 28th - In order to let your patrols take part in a well-prepared game of their dreams, we ask those among you, who have recently joined a game team, to provide the first step materials of your game. It should take you no more than three hours to prepare this step (team information - 10 min, pedagogical interest - 1 hour, description - 1 hour). You find the link with more detailed information at:
After March 1st - The games are published on: http://www.eurojam.eu/
On April 15th - The registration process for “Venite et vincite!” is starting. Please note, that the patrols can only choose the game they want to play, if the unit leaders submit their games.
Come and win! Venite et vincite!
