Every 4 years, the Scouting World Celebrates together
• 2019 is set for a North American celebration
• Jamboree dates are Monday 22nd July to Friday 2nd August, though there maybe home hospitality for a few days one side or the other, yet to be confirmed
• Applicants birthday must be between 22nd July 2001 and 21st July 2005
• Staffordshire will be taking 6 patrols consisting of 54 Participants and 6 leaders
• The selection process has now started and this is a two year journey which will see joy, exhilaration, tears, ventures into the unknown, times to shine and times to play
• We are unsure on a cost for the Jamboree at the moment – but the cost of the Jamboree should not stop anyone applying. The responsibility of raising the required funds is down to the individual however there will be assistance from Districts / County with fundraising
• Scouts and Explorers around the County who would like to take part can now send their application form into our County office
• Please specify on your application form the name of a leader who supports your application
• Save the weekend of 10-12th November 2017 in your diary. We will be inviting a maximum of 100 young people from around the County to a fun filled County selection weekend, which you will need to attend to be selected to be part of our Unit. There will be a £20 charge for this weekend
