Welcome

UNITED KINGDOM CONTINGENT 

The United Kingdom Contingent represent the UK at three international events. Follow our adventures on Twitter @ukcontingent!

WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE: The last Jamboree took place in Japan 2015, and saw 35,000 Scouts from all over the World join together. The next Jamboree will be taking place at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virgina, USA in 2019. For the first time it will be jointly hosted by three countries: Canada, Mexico and the USA. #WSJ24

ROVERWAY: In August 2016, members of Scouts and Girlguiding from all over the UK entered France at 7 different locations and discovered French culture and community, as well as working with other young people aged 16-22 from across Europe before coming together for a huge celebration outside Paris! The next Roverway takes place in The Netherlands in 2018 under the theme “Opposites attract”. #RoverwayUK

WORLD SCOUT MOOT: The next event we’re looking forward to! The Moot is aimed at members of the Scout Network, aged 18-25. In 2013 the event took place in Canada, and we’re fast approaching the next Moot in Iceland, summer 2017! Moot is the best of both worlds – take part in a Patrol Expedition to discover the stunning beauty of Iceland and then share your experiences with 5000 Scouts from across the globe! #MootUK

  1. Good Evening Guys,

    My name is Jordan and I was fortunate enough to have attended the WSJ in 2007 as a participant. Myself and Alistair (another member of my contingent) would love to be involved in the 2019 Jamboree in America so this is our offer to help.

    There isn’t much information on the website regarding other opportunities to help at the Jamboree so I was hoping that you would be able to give us some idea when we can apply for roles in either the UK contingent or the IST for 2019?

    We really enjoyed the UK Jamboree and we are really keen on giving something back to make this experience as exciting for others as ours was back in 2007.

    Look forward to your reply,
    Best Wishes,

    Jordan

    1. Hi Jordan, great news that you want to get involved in the Jamboree. CMT roles will go live in August, CST will be recruited for in spring next year.
      Alternatively counties will be recruiting for their unit leaders next year and IST will follow in early 2018. Hope that helps!

  2. hi my name is joseph
    I am from the northamptonshire county . I would love to be able to participate in this jamboree in some variety and will be 19 by the time of the wsj in America so I was wondering how do I get involved my hope is to be able to travel to the jamboree

    1. Hi Joseph

      Good to hear that you are interested in the World Scout Jamboree.

      If you are 19 at the time of the event, you will be able to apply as an IST member. However, IST applications will not be open until next year. We will look forward to you applying when they are open.

      Thanks

      UKC
