Today Essex International Jamboree is launching our extra special seasonal competition. We are inviting Groups or individuals from around the world to come up with their own lyrics to the traditional 12 days of Christmas song, but with a camping theme.

Once, you have created your lyrics, video yourself or your group performing it, and post it on our Facebook page or give us a tweet. The best one will get mentioned on Essex International Jamboree You Tube channel and the one that receives the most likes will form a part of a seasonal message. Alternatively you can email your suggested lyrics to and we will post the best on our Facebook page.

For inspiration, take a look at some of the ways the song has been performed on YouTube.
