International Scouting has been a big part of the programme for some time. The first world Scout Jamboree was held in London in 1920, It was after that, that our founder Baden Powell had a dream about a place where all Scouts from all over the world could meet: and have a permanent mini jamboree. His dream came true and now we have an international Scout Centre which is located in Kandersteg, Switzerland.
Scouts in our County get the opportunity to partake in many exciting International adventures and we're looking at ways to increase these opportunities too.
Future adventures are in the planning and preparation phase, here are the one's we already know about:
Applications will be opening soon for roles at the World Scout Moot to be held in Dublin during the Summer of 2021.
We're already talking about a big County trip, somewhere in Europe - there'll be more to come on this as soon as we've sorted out the outline information!
A copy of the Visits Abroad form which is required by The Scout Association for all International trips can be found here
The International section of The Scout Association maintains a list of exciting International opportunities, it can be found here
