The Jamboree camp was divided into five sub-camps. Overseas contingents were distributed over all sub-camps. Each of the five was divided into various contingents and large parties were broken into smaller groups.

On the map of the camp site, sub-camps are distinguished by the use of the figures 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Contingent camps are marked alphabetically, and from the key it is possible to pick out on the map the camping place of any party.
