Helping us towards a carbon neutral festival 

2nd-9th August 2025

Welcome to Tropical Subcamp!

The equator is where you find tropical countries, mystical and magical, and where many territories remain undiscovered. 


The heat is on for a a colourful and culturally diverse experience. May the spirit of adventure, camaraderie, and discovery in Tropical Subcamp inspire you, and wherever your Festival path carries you, with the many Scouts and Guides from around the world, it will be an unforgettable experience.


Welcome to Tropical Subcamp.


Between the team, we have been on several UK based jamborees, World Scout Jamborees and international trips to Ghana and Kandersteg.

Of all the fantastic things that will be happening at KIJ, we think the thing we are most looking forward to is meeting all of you amazing people who will be joining us for a week of fun and adventure. Waking up in the morning and seeing so many young people (and young at heart of course) having fun and making new friends, is just the best feeling.

The Tropical Subcamp team are busy planning a host of activities for you to enjoy.

Time to kill before going to the main arena?

Then join us for a beach party or maybe an eighties neon night. Maybe just get yourself moving with party dance mania.

Been busy doing the main activities and fancy some time to chill?

Then join us in the activity tent and have a go at leather branding, glass engraving or woggle making – you can never have to many woggles!!


From thrilling challenges to shared meals, storytelling to cultural crafts, there's something for everyone at the Tropical Subcamp.

The Orangutan

All three species are critically endangered according to the IUCN Red List of mammals. They are legally protected from capture, harm or killing in both Malaysia and Indonesia. The Bornean orangutan range has become more fragmented, with few or no apes documented. The largest remaining population is found in the forest around the Sabangau River, but this environment is at risk. The Sumatran orangutan is found only in the northern part of Sumatra, most of the population inhabiting the Leuser Ecosystem. The Tapanuli orangutan is found only in the Batang Toru forest of Sumatra.
At our fesival you will have the opportunity to discover more about endangered species and how as Scouts and Guides we may take action to to help protect animals for future generations.
