Think big. Dream wild. Act together
In Summer 2023, more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather in Korea for the 25th World Scout Jamboree. We’re so proud that thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will be there as part of the UK Contingent. As part of the UK Contingent, we’ll have 36 young people and 4 unit leaders from Cornwall taking part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Do you want to be part of something special with 1000s of young people who will make up part of the 4500 strong UK Contingent? Cornwall has 36 spaces available and they are open to every member who meets the age requirements detailed below.
If you have the ability to Think Big, Dream Wild and Act Together, then you’re just the kind of person we want to apply. One thing we can promise you is that it will be like no other trip or adventure you’ve experienced! Applying can’t be easier, just click on the link below and fill in your details. We encourage anyone who is eligible to attend the Jamboree to apply– even if you aren’t sure or 100% certain it’s for you. The deadline for applications closes on Friday 14th January at 23:59.
We expect lots of great young people to apply from across the county; unfortunately, we can only take 36, in light of this we will be holding a selection event on Saturday 22nd January. The day will consist of a chance to meet other Scouts & Explorers from around the county and take part in some fun-filled activities. During the day we will be looking out for Teamwork, Creativity, Problem Solving, Attitude and Communication skills.
If you would like to know more about the next Jamboree, the UK Scout website has a load of information and resources available here.
Following on from the success of the Roadshow we have decided to hold a second Roadshow on Wednesday 12th January at 20:00. If you would like to join this roadshow please register your interest here. You can also catch up with the recording from the first Roadshow event here.
