We have received our unit allocation for the 2019 World Scout Jamboree. The fantastic news is that we have received the allocation of a full unit. In the summer of 2019, 36 young people and 4 leaders will have the honour of representing our County at the World Scout Jamboree in the Summit Bechtel Reserve, West Virginia, USA.

It is going to be AMAZING!
Who can go?
The opportunity to attend the Jamboree as part of the Humberside Unit is open to all Adult Leaders and all Scouts or Explorer Scouts with dates of birth between 22 July 2001 and 21 July 2005.
Attendance isn’t free but with hard work and dedication, the majority of participants fundraise all of the fee.
In addition there will be further opportunities for adults to attend the Jamboree as part of the International Service Team (IST). Selection for these roles is likely to take place in early 2018.
In the coming days, the County will start the search for the Unit Leadership team. Applicant packs for these roles will be posted on the Facebook page and on our website.
There will be an open evening at Raywell for everybody interested in attending the Jamboree as Unit Leaders, Youth Participants or International Service Team, parents are welcome to attend of course. This event will be held in the Nyeri Building at Raywell on the 8th of June 2017. Please feel free to call in during the evening and have a chat with us, any time between 6.30pm and 9.00pm will be great. During the evening we will also have several presentations from County Members that attended the previous Jamboree.
