Do you want a new challenge in summer 2017? Do you want to meet scouts from around the world? Have you thought about representing the UK on an international adventure? Sign up for The Moot and be part of something magical!
If you are a Scout or Guide in the UK and if you were born on or between the dates of 2nd August 1991 and 25th July 1999 you are eligible to be a participant with the UK Contingent.
Choose Your Own Adventure
As a participant of The Moot, you will get the opportunity to choose your own adventure and create your own unique story. Your experience will be defined by your choice of action, environment, nature and culture. Activities could include mountain climbing, glacier walks, cliffswinging, bathing in hot springs, horse riding, caving, kayaking or learning about Icelandic environment, food, art, history and culture.
In the lead up to the Moot, the UK contingent will meet for two briefing weekends to prepare for the event, find out more about the theme of Change and bond as a contingent. More details on the briefing weekends will be provided once the contingent has been selected.
Prior to The Moot each participant will form part of a 10 person international patrol (with at least 2 members of the UK in each patrol). At The Moot, your patrol will experience activities, camp and live together for 9 days. The first four days of The Moot (The Expedition) will take place at one of ten stunning locations throughout Iceland. Activities will combine action, adventure, environment, community and culture. During the final 5 days of The Moot, all participants will come together for one large camp (Althingi) to share their experiences.
As well as attending the Moot itself, all UK contingent participants will take part in exclusive pre- and post-moot events. Further details will be provided closer to the event.
More information about The Moot can be found on the official Iceland webpage
