The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Explorers were chosen after putting themselves forward for a selection weekend which involved physical and mental tasks that examined their problem solving, teamwork and leadership skills.
The World Scout Jamboree is the largest camping event organized by the Scout Movement, gathering as many as 50,000 Scouts and leaders from more than 200 countries. Co-hosted by Canada, Mexico and the United States, the 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, United States from July 22 - August 2, 2019.
The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace, mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills which includes a wide variety of outdoor adventure activities and places a great emphasis on everyday life and social interaction among different cultures that is experienced through the Scouting campsite. “Unlock a New World” is the chosen theme and hints of the new adventures, cultures and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the twelve day event.
Four Whittlesey-based Explorer Scouts are amongst the local participants within the UK Contingent who are being given these training and development opportunities, including targets to achieve before, during and after the event. Each must raise the £3495 cost, which reflects the UK’s relative global wealth and subsidises participation for scouts from less affluent nations.

We would like to thank you in advance if you make a donation.
