The 23rd World Scout Jamboree is taking place in Kirara-hama, Japan in the summer of 2015. The theme is “WA: A spirit of Unity“, and embraces many meanings such as unity, harmony, cooperation, friendship and peace.
World Scout Jamborees take place every 4 years, and are an amazing experience. Scouts aged between 14 and 18 will gather from all over the world to take part in a fortnight of exciting activities, making friends and learning about different cultures. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and one that you’ll never forget.
Applications to be part of the Wiltshire Jamboree Unit are now open, and will remain open until 21st October. To apply, you must be born between 28 July 1997 and 27 July 2001. Applicants will be shortlisted based on an online submission form, and then those on the short list will be invited to attend a selection weekend at the end of November.
To keep the cost of the Jamboree to a minimum, we will be fundraising as much of the Jamboree fee (to be confirmed, but we will keep the cost under £3,500) as we possibly can. This will include everything from bag packing to running fundraising events. The participants will be expected to help out with the fundraising and organise many of the fundraising activities themselves.
