About

I am part of the 3rd Winchester Scout troop and I have been selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree in 2019.  I had to apply and then attend a selection weekend and was lucky enough to be picked.  I now have to raise £3790 to go!  I am doing lots of things to do this: virtually climbing Bunker Hill (the tallest peak in West Virginia) at Golden Gecko in Romsey, a film night, Christmas craft fair and lots of other ideas. 
I am really looking forward to going to the Jamboree it is a great honour in Scouting to attend and it is a great dream of mine also. 
Many thanks for helping me make my dream come true.

Hampshire Scouts: 24th World Scout Jamboree

WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE - Beyond Borders, Beyond Limits, Beyond Expectations
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be taking place at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, USA in July 2019. For the first time it will be jointly hosted by three countries: Canada, Mexico and the USA. The UK Contingent to the Jamboree will be the largest ever Contingent from the UK to an overseas event.
The World Scout Jamboree is all about Scouts from across the world, coming to spend time together, to have fun, and to look at issues that are important to everybody. The Jamboree itself lasts 12 days, plus some events either side, to make a 3 week expedition.
Hampshire County Scouts have been awarded 15 Patrols, and will be joined by 1 Patrol from the Isle of Wight. The 16 Patrols are grouped into 4 Jamboree Units (units 54 – 57).
Overall, the 144 young people need to raise £3,790 each to take part in this trip of a life time, that helps to promote world co-operation and peace.

I went to the 9th Jamboree in 1957. But - it was in Sutton Coldfield and I put an axe into my left ankle and can still see the scar. Jamie will surely do better in West Virginia.
