25th World Scout Jamboree

          The World Scout Jamboree takes place every four years, each time hosted by a different country. The 25th World Scout Jamboree is being organised by South Korea and will take place in SaeManGeum, Jeollabuk-do, South Korea from the 1 to the 12 August 2023. More than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather in Korea.

          Thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will be there, and will call themselves the UK Contingent. The UK Contingent will be made up by a number of Units each containing 36 young people and 4 leaders. Cleveland Scouts have been allocated two patrols and will join with two patrols from Central Yorkshire to create a unit. This means that Cleveland Scouts have been allocated 18 young people places and two leader places.  

          Please note, to be an eligible youth participant, you must have been born between 22 July 2005 and 31 July 2009. This is because young people must be between the ages of 14-17years old on 22nd July 2023.

          The cost of the Jamboree has not yet been quoted and interested parties will be informed as soon as this figure is announced. The cost will be paid in installments like previous jamborees.

          Please pass on this information to any interested members so that they are given the information and opportunity to attend this event. The cost of the Jamboree should not inhibit members from applying as funding and grants etc. may be available. A young person only gets one opportunity to attend a World Jamboree as a participant.

          Interested parties for young person orleadership places should send their details to clevelandscoutsinternational@gmail.comby noon on Monday 1st November 2021.
