Summer is a time for gathering and exploring new things and events. From the music festival scene to your local Farmer’s Market, it seems that everywhere you turn, there are new things to see and do. This is what makes summer so uniquely wonderful - time with family and friends, new adventures that await, and creative things to do that simply aren’t available when the weather cools down.

World Scout Jamboree is one of those unforgettable moments in a child’s life. Those who have the privilege of attending gain such an important new perspective of the world and celebrate the diversity, inclusiveness, and intrigue of the world beyond their hometown.

This year, we were excited to provide portable restrooms for rent for this huge event. The kids were so excited to be a part of something this big, and the adventures never ended during their stay.

Here’s information about this international gathering of adventurous youth and what they experienced during this 12 day event:

“What is a World Scout Jamboree?

The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills.

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will feature the hallmarks of past world jamboree programs, such as the Global Development Village, special sustainability initiatives, and the socialization elements that allow participants to make lifelong friends from around the world.

Unlike any other youth event, the World Scout Jamboree invites you to surround yourself in diverse global cultures by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. The jamboree experience extends beyond your home—and beyond the boundaries of our countries—to create a global adventure that will last a lifetime!

Who Attends the World Scout Jamboree?

The 24th World Scout Jamboree is an official educational event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM). It is specifically designed for young people ages 14 to 17 years old from National Scout Organizations (NSOs), which are members of WOSM. NSOs send approved contingents of youth participants; adult unit leaders; and adult International Service Team members, who are the staff for the jamboree.

The Jamboree Hosts

This 24th World Scout Jamboree is unique because it is a team effort by Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. Our three countries are getting ready to welcome our Scouting friends as family to “Unlock a New World.”

The Theme

Our theme, Unlock a New World, invites you to unlock new adventures, new cultures, and new friendships. The theme was originally designed by youth representatives from our three host countries, also known as the “Dream Team,” who were responsible for presenting the original bid for the 24th World Scout Jamboree. Because our jamboree is being hosted in North America, it will be defined by the cultures found in the “New World” countries of Mexico, Canada, and the USA. This jamboree will provide a different view on the Scouting movement. Holding fast to our traditions of conservation and outdoorsmanship, a jamboree in the New World is a jamboree that embraces the growing trend of leadership development and global citizenship that our movement has cultivated.”

As we learned more about this event and met with the team, we began thinking about portable restrooms for rent that could satisfy their needs.

A SOLUTION WITH PORTABLE RESTROOMS FOR RENT

As the event planners began mapping out this huge international event, they knew that efficient restrooms would be a requirement. This was especially true since this event features a large gathering of youth. When they came to us looking for the perfect solution, we know we had options for them with portable restrooms for rent.

After hearing details about the event size, what restrooms they already had to work with, and more details that helped us narrow down their search, we settled on the 5 Station Calypso, a compact yet efficient unit that would be a perfect addition to their restroom needs. This is one of our portable restrooms for rent that measures 15 feet long with a 150 gallon fresh water tank and 560 gallon waste tank. It easily handles up to 250 guests before needing maintenance.

The entry to each suite is equipped with aluminum hand rails and steps, making it safe and easy to access. Porch lights are set up at each entry as well, ensuring that these restrooms remain accessible no matter what time day or night. Like all of our portable restrooms for rent, this unit is coated with a strong exterior designed to prevent scratches and dents.

As visitors enter the suites, they’ll find a womens suite with three stalls and a mens suite with one stall and one urinal. Each stall is protected by ¾ height privacy walls, and walls are also provided for additional privacy at urinals. The entire portable restroom rental is equipped with non-slip flooring, flushable toilets, and a sink vanity with a shatterproof mirror. 

The entire unit also features air conditioning and heat strips in order to maintain a comfortable interior temperature no matter what outside weather may be like. These strips can easily increase or decrease the temperature of the unit when necessary, ensuring that guests have a comfortable experience.

A final feature of this and many of our portable restrooms for rent is the Smarter Restrooms App. In February of 2017, we launched the Smarter Restrooms App, and this tool has helped our many partners to more effectively run their restroom rentals business. The app, which can be downloaded and used on any smartphone, tablet, or laptop, makes the overall management of restroom fleets convenient and more time effective.

As we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of purchasing restroom rentals with the Smarter Restrooms App feature. Read ahead to discover three key upgrades that the app provides.

  1. Receive Timely Notifications

Each of our restroom rentals comes with water saving flushable toilets, running water from sinks, and sometimes, showers and other amenities. This means that fresh water tank and waste tank levels require careful monitoring.

No need to do this math on your own any longer! The Smarter Restroom App sends the fleet managers alert notifications when waste and freshwater tank levels are 2⁄3 full or empty, causing the unit will be out of service shortly. This is sure to boost productivity, allowing your team to have easy access to the information they need to keep restroom rentals operating smoothly.

  1. All-in-One Control System

Nothing is more important than the experience of your guests. We want to ensure that every user has a comfortable experience in a climate-controlled unit with all the amenities of a brick-and-mortar restroom. This is an easy achievement with the app’s system operations control feature.

The app detects and controls shore power, interior climate temperatures, and up-to-date weather conditions, giving units winter protection from freezing temperatures and keeping things cool when hot. This ensures that restroom rentals fleet managers stay updated from a remote location - they’ll know what changes are needed to the unit and when, which allows for a consistently pleasant restroom experience for guests.

The app also allows for geometric locating, allowing managers to see the exact locations of all portable restroom trailers at all times.

  1. Offsite Unit Management

The most tasking part of operating restroom rentals is basic management. Making the trip back and forth to one or many units takes up valuable time, which can lower efficient customer service. The app addresses this issue as well.

Managers have capabilities to remotely control lights, air conditioning, heating, water heaters, and trailer power. This means managers can operate more restroom trailers off-site, expand their operations, and provide superior service.

Overall, the Smarter Restrooms App was developed to allow businesses who use or own restroom rentals to manage them more effectively. The app allows the management team to get more done in less time, makes fleet operations easier in general, and saves valuable employee time. Now, with the app, you can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor. We’ve made it easy so that your business can provide the best service possible easily, allowing you to grow and prosper.

Overall, the 5 Station Calypso was an ideal solution for the World Scout Jamboree. Of the many portable restrooms for rent that we were able to show their team, they favored this trailer because it was efficient, equipped with all the amenities of a home restroom, adaptable to their needs, and designed with thought. They knew that this restroom solution would be a perfect short-term option for the event and didn’t want to sacrifice quality to save money.

Luckily, with portable restrooms for rent, we were about to supply a perfect restroom solution that was affordable and efficient enough to handle a large volume of young people. As we look forward to helping other companies and organizations in the future, we want to spread the word that anyone looking for a short- or long-term restroom option can find a solution with us. No need to sacrifice quality, and no need to break the bank on another high-end option. Like with World Scout Jamboree, the perfect fit that balances the two comes with portable restrooms for rent. We were happy to introduce the event team to a style of portable restrooms for rent that they didn’t know existed.
