Gloucestershire European Jamboree 2020 Contingent

For the first time in 15 years there will be a European Jamboree! The jamboree will be held between 27th July and 6th August 2020 in Gdansk, Poland. Over the last 4 years the Polish Scouting and Guiding Association has had a concept of “Be the Spark”, which alongside the main theme of “ACT” is a theme for this jamboree.

As a county we have the opportunity to take 36 young people, 4 leaders and 5 IST members. If you would like to be a part of the contingent please fill out the relevant form below.

The cost of the trip for the 36 young people and 4 leaders is £1250. This will include the camp, transport, equipment and a city visit. The fee will be expected, at least in part, to be fundraised through individual and unit activities.

For IST the cost of the camp is £255 (1250 Zloty) this excludes transport, equipment and the city visit. We will expect the IST to participate in fundraising and be a part of the contingent and support them in their travels to and from the camp.

Participants

We’re looking for 36 young people (ages 14-17 at the time of the jamboree) to join us at the European Jamboree in Poland in 2020.

IST

The IST are the backbone of any jamboree, they keep the site working and make sure everyone has a great time. As IST you will be integrated into an international team doing all manner of tasks to ensure the jamboree is a great experience for all attending. It is an amazing experience which the Polish Scouting and Guiding Association wants to make even better. At the European jamboree there will be extras for the IST along the themes of physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual. These include yoga and Zumba, food houses, chill-out zones, concerts and parties purely for the IST. Do you have what it takes to be the spark and be part of an International Service Team hosting a jamboree for the Scouts and Guides of Europe?

We have 5 spaces from Gloucestershire for IST, If you would like to apply to be one of them please fill out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/K1i5CnDQNKibbc9w1
