Support our amazing young people from Central Yorkshire Scouts who have been selected to represent Great Britain at the 24th World Scout Jamboree
Raising money for
Central Yorkshire Scouts
We are so proud of how hard each person has worked to achieve selection for the Jamboree which will be held in North America from the 20th July 2019. They will represent Great Britain and join around 70,000 Scouts from 216 Countries and Colonies from around the world.
This is truly a once in a life time opportunity to meet and compete with the best Scouts in the World. However, to attend, each young person and leader has to raise £3,800 to cover their travel and training costs, through fundraising and charity events.
We would be extremely grateful for any support you can offer in our fundraising endeavours.
Unit 28 World Jamboree 2019
From the thousands of Scouts/Explorers and Leaders across the UK who applied for selection, 36 young people from Central Yorkshire County Scouts along with 4 adults from Scout Groups have been selected to attend the Jamboree in July 2019.
Athletes from all around the world all share the same dream, to make it to the Olympic Games and compete against the best in the world. A World Scout Jamboree is, to the Scouting world, their equivalent of the Olympic Dream. The young Scouts have but one chance to be selected during their Scouting years, they each endure rigorous interviews and Scouting tests before being selected.
Once selected the hard work really begins, to fund raise for the event and to prepare for the event itself, through fitness and culture awareness activities and camps.
Each person commits to a further two years after the Jamboree, supporting and preparing other young people wanting to attend the next Jamboree. In total the Jamboree journey lasts for around 4 years.
