For those of you who want to visit the World Jamboree:
Below is the official visitors information. There is an attractive
programme offered each day where visitors can participate in several
activities. A visitors festival and arena show is on every day at the
main arena in the afternoon.
Visit the World Jamboree
The World Jamboree is open for day visitors from 3 to 9 August
(inclusive) from 10 to 17 hours. (10 am to 5 pm) Due to the large
number of visitors anticipated, tickets will be sold in advance and
visits are limited to one day. The World Jamboree takes place at
Dronten, in the Province of Flevoland. In the area there will be
ample signs indicating the way. Parking is situated some distance
from the site, and there will be shuttle service to the main
entrance. Pets are not allowed. Entry tickets are available from
April onwards. The price for tickets purchased in advance is:
Adults: NLG 20; youths up to and including 17 years of age NLG 12.50;
children up to and including the age of 4 are admitted free of
charge. There is a booking cost of NLG 3 per ticket. The number of
tickets for each day is limited, and they may not be available at the
gate. We advise visitors to buy tickets in advance. Please contact
the Jamboree Visitors Booking Office to order your tickets:

Direct train connections from Amsterdam Central Station and from
Schiphol Airport railway station will take you to Lelystad. From
there, take the special Jamboree bus service to the site.
Alternative: travel to Harderwijk railway station (from Amsterdam via
Hilversum and Amersfoort). Board the Jamboree bus there. If you want
to do it the Dutch way, rent a bicycle at Harderwijk station for a
day and cycle to the site (about 15 km, 1 hour).
Please be advised that all accomodation like camp sites and hotels
anywhere near the site is fully booked by now. If you need
accomodation, ask for assistance at the same address as above.
There is a limited possibility to take part in IRC sessions with
Jamboree participants. If you are interested contact our Computer
Activity Centre, Edwin van der Elst (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
Visits by radio:
The Jamboree has an amateur radio station, PA6WSJ, which can be
contacted via short-wave and the digital packet-radio network. I can
send more details if you want them.
Have a safe journey and welcome to the Netherlands!
See you there.
