EUROPEAN JAMBOREE 2020 – Poland

21 January 2019

27th July – 06th August 2020

EXTENDED DEADLINE – 30 April 2019

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN ADVENTURE IN 2020?

Cornwall Scouts are recruiting 4 leaders and 36 participants to form a unit to attend the next European Scout Jamboree.

We are also looking for adult members to join the International Service Team (IST)

This is an exciting opportunity to take part in an international experience with full support before, during and after the event.

You don’t have to be in any specific section to be part of the leadership team, you just need to have a sense of adventure and great team building and leadership skills.

 

BACKGROUND

A European Jamboree gathers young people from all over Europe to celebrate Scout and Guide values, strengthen our international community and provide young people with the opportunity to meet and learn from each other.

In 2005, the UK hosted the last European Scout Jamboree, EuroJam at Hylands Park. Fifteen years on and the European Jamboree is back for 2020, this time in Gdansk, Poland. The Jamboree will focus on building on the fantastic programme developed as part of their World Scout Jamboree bid.

The Scouts and Guides of Poland have invited you to join them for 11 days of activities, combining the chance to develop new skills, make new friends 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.

CORNWALL CONTINGENT

The UK Scout Association has allocated our County a full unit consisting of 4 leaders and 36 young people. What’s even more exciting is the UKSA has decided to take a less centralised role in planning and let the unit leaders plan the event with their young people!

ESTIMATED COST FOR JAMBOREE

Although the basic cost for the Jamboree is approx. £376 (1,850 Polish Zloty), this does not include travel, insurance, unit kit (Badge, neckers, etc.), the Pre or Post Jamboree Experience & training camps. The overall cost will be no more than £1,500. The majority of this can hopefully be raised through fundraising.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

Applications are open to participants born between 06/08/2002 and 27/07/2006.

Anyone who will be over 18 by 20th July 2020 can apply to attend as a Contingent Leader or as International Service Team (IST).
