A camporee is a local or regional gathering of Scouting/Guiding units for a period of camping and common activities. Similar to a camporee, a jamboree occurs less often and draws units from the entire nation or world. The Sriram Bajpai Scouts & Guides Association-India and others scouting organisations also promote large camps called "camporees". The camporees are one of the biggest events of interaction between scouts/guides around the world.
A Gang Show is a theatrical performance with a cast of mostly youth members of Scouts and Guides. Adult members of the the movements and parents help out behind the scenes. The aim of the shows is to give young people in Scouting & Guiding the opportunity to develop performance skills and perform in a close to professional theatrical environment. Opportunities are also often afforded to young people to work backstage, in front-of-house roles and as musicians in musical items and in the pit band.
The production teams and cast, all volunteers, participate in many hours of planning, writing, composing, choreographing, building stage scenery/props, making costumes and rehearsing for several months before the actual performances. In order to reach the required performance standard for a Gang Show, a high level of commitment is needed from all involved in the production as well as support from their families. A typical Gang Show would require participants to attend between 15 and 30 rehearsals in preparation for the performances.
In addition some Gang Shows are organised in the manner of a typical Scouting/Guiding activity with the participants perhaps grouped into patrols, or attending special Gang Show camps, away days and activities in order to develop and enhance team cohesion.
Performances take place in theatres, schools, community centers – anywhere with an appropriate level of services for the show to function. Performance runs range from one day up to two weeks, and tickets are available to the general public. In the best examples, Gang Shows are an excellent shop window for the Scout movement.
While a Gang Show is always a performance by 'amateurs', the show attracts costs similar to a professional production, despite the huge amount of volunteer hours put in. Many shows are lucky enough to have the support of local businesses through advertising and sponsorship. Others have to do all the fundraising themselves.
Gang Show format
The format of a Gang Show is essentially a revue or variety show; song, dance and short comedy sketches are the most common items. The number of items varies (commonly ranging between 12 and 25): some are stand-alone; others are a series of songs conforming to a chosen theme, or a running gag.
A typical show will include a big opening number, some comedy sketches, several musical items with a mix of group and solo work, dance numbers and a grand finale sequence. Some of the material is well-known; other material is original to Gang Shows, sometimes even penned by the young people themselves.
The show's format was created by Ralph Reader CBE, the original Gang Show producer, who went on to write much material for Gang Shows, sketches musical numbers and Pageants including the signature tune On the Crest of a Wave. Other "standards" Reader wrote include Strolling, Great Great Game, Gee, It's A Wonderful life, A Touch of Silver, Three Cheers, Show Time, Together, and The Scout Hymn.
An indaba is an important conference held by the izin Duna (principal men) of the Zulu or Xhosa peoples of South Africa. (Such meetings are also practiced by the Swazi, who refer to them using the close cognate indzaba.) These indabas may include only the izin Duna of a particular community or may be held with representatives of other communities.
The term comes from a Zulu language word, meaning "business" or "matter".
The term has found widespread use throughout Southern Africa and often simply means gathering or meeting. It is also used in the Scouting movement.
A number of 'indabas' take place annually in South Africa; these include the design, tourism and "baba" indabas. The Design Indaba is an annual cultural conference held in Cape Town in late February or early March. It has also been referred to as the 'Conference on Creativity'. Design Indaba was established in 1995 and runs alongside a design expo of South African design, a film festival and a series of other workshops, parties and functions, organised by Design Indaba.
The Tourism Indaba is meant as a gathering of all those involved in the African tourism industry. The Tourism Indaba is one of the top three tourism marketing events on the global calendar and the largest in Africa and it attracts thousands of delegates, visitors and media representatives from across the globe. This Indaba takes place in Durban each year.
Since 2006 the 'Baba Indaba' baby and parenting expo has attracted tens of thousands of new parents to exhibitions in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Pretoria, Durban and Bloemfontein. The name 'Baba Indaba' has been derived from the Afrikaans word 'Baba' meaning baby and 'Indaba'

In Scouting, a jamboree is a large gathering of Scouts who rally at a national or international level.
The 1st World Scout Jamboree was held in 1920, and was hosted by the United Kingdom. It was for this jamboree that the founder of scouting, Lord Baden-Powell, wrote the song "ging gang goolie" because it could be sung by anyone. Since then, there have been twenty two World Scout Jamborees, hosted in various countries, generally every four years.
There are also national and continental jamborees held around the world with varying frequency. Many of these events will invite and attract Scouts from overseas.
It is said that the word has several possible origins, ranging from Hindi to Swahili to Native American dialects. It is also said that the word Jamboree is related to corroboree, a term corrupted by the European settlers of Australia from the Aboriginal word caribberie meaning a ceremonial meeting of Aboriginals involving singing and dancing.
Baden-Powell chose the name as rally, meeting and gathering did not fully capture the spirit of this then-new concept. It is said that the name is derived from the Swahili for hello, jambo, as a result of the considerable amount of time he spent in the region. At the first world jamboree at Olympia in 1920, Lord Baden-Powell said "People give different meanings for this word, but from this year on, jamboree will take a specific meaning. It will be associated to the largest gathering of youth that ever took place."
Olave, Lady Baden-Powell, coined the term jamborese to refer to the lingua franca used between Scouts of different languages and cultural habits, that develops when diverse Scouts meet, that fosters friendship and understanding between Scouts of the world. Sometimes the word jamborette is used to denote smaller, either local or international, gatherings.
Girl Guides rarely use the term jamboree for their gatherings. Girl Scouts, however, do use the word.
The Jamboree-on-the-Internet, or JOTI, is an annual Scouting event sponsored by the Various Scouting & Guiding Organizations. This event utilizes the Internet and the numerous devices that are used to get online, from your home computer to iPad tablets, to link Scouts from around the world.
Scouts of any age can take part, from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts and Venturers. Scouts can participate at home with the help of an adult, or they can participate in a Scout group at a councilwide event. JOTI is an economical way of communicating around the world. The event allows Scouts to "meet" other Scouts from around the world through the Internet and share more information than just "Hi." The exchanges can include such information as name, location of event, Scout rank, age, and hobbies. Some exchanges lead to long-lasting friendships. Another great idea is to use JOTI participation to help fulfill a Citizenship in the World or Computers merit badge requirement!
Rover Moot/Ranger Meet
The Rover Moot/Ranger Meet is a gathering of older Scouts/Guides, mainly Rovers /Rangers , ages 16–26. Moots are held every year at various level.
Moot is also a generic term used for a gathering of any size for scouts of this age group. The word "moot" was Old English and originally meant a meeting or assembly.

Lone Scouts are members of the Scout movement who are in isolated areas or otherwise do not participate in a regular Scouting unit or organization. A Lone Scout must meet the membership requirements of the Scouting organization to which they belong and have an adult Scout leader or counselor who may be a parent, guardian, minister, teacher, or another adult. The leader or counselor instructs the boy and reviews all steps of scouting advancement. Lone Scouts can be in the Scout Section or sections for older young people, and in some countries in the Cub section or sections for younger boys. They follow the same program as other Scouts and may advance in the same way as all other Scouts.
Lone Scouts exist in many countries in the world, including Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.
John Hargrave was the inspirator of the Lone Scouts. Hargrave wrote a series of articles for "Lone Scouts", held Lonecraft Camps and wrote Lonecraft, the handbook for Lone Scouts, published in 1913. Hargrave's book referred to individual Lone Scouts and Lone Patrols. Hargrave dedicated his book to naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton, founder of the Woodcraft League. Hargrave was an early boy scout and, in 1917, became Commissioner for Woodcraft and Camping in the Baden-Powell Boy Scouts but Baden-Powell and his organization refused to recognize Hargrave's Lone Scouts and Woodcraft scouting. Hargrave, a Quaker pacifist and medical corps war veteran of the disastrous 1915 Gallipoli Campaign, became increasingly disenchanted with the military dominated leadership and militarism of the Baden-Powell Boy Scouts and in February, 1919, he held a meeting of like-minded scout leaders. In 1920 Hargrave formed the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift and in January 1921 he was expelled from Baden-Powell's organization. Many Lone Scouts disassociated from the Baden-Powell organization, some joined Hargrave's Kibbo Kift while others joined the British Boy Scouts, other National Peace Scouts or remained independent scouts and patrols.
The term "Lone Scout" was later officially adopted by Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts Association.
The Lone Scouts of America were formed in 1915 by William D. Boyce, a Chicago newspaper entrepreneur.
Boys/girls (in the USA) who are eligible to become Lone Scouts include:
- Children of American citizens who live abroad

- Boys/girls in rural communities who live far from a Scouting unit
- Sons/daughters of migrant farmworkers
- Boys/girls who attend night schools or boarding schools

Within Scotland Region Lones is set up as a separate County with all the same rights an privileges of a physical county. A county commissioner is appointed on a 5 year termly basis who in turn supports leaders who are assigned to each Section.
The most poplulous sections are Guides (age 10-16) and the Senior Section (age 14-25). Girls are supported through postal newsletters, email, blog, phonecalls and the opportunity to meet up at an annual gathering.
Additionally Lone Guiding supports peer mentoring for girls working on various Awards and Qualifications- from interest badges to the Queen's Guide Award.
1st Lone Company 1st Lone Company was established in 1912 by Agnes Baden-Powell. The Captain was Nesta G. Maude, the very first Guide to earn the Silver Fish award. Members of this company lived in such diverse places as England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cyprus, Poland and Belgium. They kept in contact by a postal newsletter. There were several patrols, including the Thistle patrol.
There is record of a camp at Eridge, taking tea with Agnes Baden-Powell at her house and visits to Guide Headquarters (at that time located at 116 Victoria Street in London) in the first few years of the company's existence.
United States of America – Girl Scouts of the USA Lones in the USA are called Juliette Girl Scouts, so named after the founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Juliette Gordon Low. They were formerly known as Solo Girl Scouts.
