Fancy another international adventure?
We have another adventure of a lifetime just around the corner – the European Jamboree 2020!
A European Jamboree is a European Scouting event for young people aged between 14 and 18 and is a gathering of Scouts and Guides from all over the world for an exciting programme of global development, peace, cultural understanding, adventure, fun and friendship.
The Scout Association has a long history of sending a large number of Units (36 young people and four leaders, divided into four patrols) as part of a UK Contingent to attend Jamborees. Each Contingent has enjoyed a varied and exciting experience.
After a gap of nearly 15 years, since the UK hosted the last European Jamboree in 2005, the upcoming European Scout Jamboree will take place in Poland in July/August 2020. Building on the fantastic programme developed as part of their World Scout Jamboree bids the Scouts and Guides of Poland invite you to join them for 11 days of activities, combining the chance to develop new skills, make new friends from across Europe and experience Poland’s beautiful countryside. Based on its own island close to the city of Gdansk, the purpose built site is within walking distance of beautiful sandy beaches, pine forests and a short bus ride from the bustling city.
Is this experience for me?
We are looking for young people who enjoy having new adventures, meeting new people and enjoy experiencing new places and cultures to join the Unit. Altogether we can take 36 young people with us. Please note you must be born between 26th July 2002 and no later than 2006.
We are also searching for 4 amazing adults to make up our Unit Leadership Team. If you feel you can inspire young people to participate and plan a unique experience then this is for you!
Unlike other Jamborees, we are directly recruiting International Service Team members who will support the Jamboree on site. Working in a wide range of areas, you are what makes the Jamboree run on a daily basis. Without you, nothing would be possible!
Interested? Then why not come along to our information evening on Thursday 25th October 2018 at 6pm in the Nyeri Building, Raywell Park. This is for any adults who are interesting in applying and any young people who are interested in going. We’ll be able to share past experiences of Jamborees and give you a rough cost of how much this one will cost. We’ll also be launching our Adult recruitment process at this night! There might even be some nibbles!
