25th World Scout Jamboree
1st to 12th August 2023
SaeManGeum, Jeollabuk-do, Republic of Korea
Would you like the opportunity to go abroad with Girlguiding and meet guides and scouts from all over the world?
The 25th World Scout Jamboree will take place from 1st to 12th August 2023 in SaeManGeum, Jeollabuk-do, Republic of Korea. North East England have been invited to send a patrol of 9 girls and 1 leader to the event and our county, South Yorkshire, are looking for interested applicants who will go forward to a region selection later in the year.
The jamboree experience will enable young people to realise their dreams, make friendships with people from different cultures, and take part in a programme. The theme of the Jamboree is “Draw your Dream”. It will also mark the 100th anniversary of the Korea Scout Association.
The approximate cost of the trip is £3,000, but this is to be confirmed. The cost of the trip can be paid for through personal fundraising, so please don’t let the cost put you off applying.
Our county is holding a selection day on Saturday 23rd October 2021 at Hesley Wood Guide House 09:30-16:00. You will join girls from across the county to take part in group and individual activities as part of the selection day. The cost for this day is £5 (lunch provided).
We can only select 1 girl to go through to the secondary selection at regional level. If selected you must be able to attend the region selection day, which will take place on Saturday 13th November at North East England’s Headquarters in Monks Cross, York. Timings and cost to be confirmed by North East England.
To be eligible to take part, the girls must be born between 22nd July 2005 and 31st July 2009
If you have don’t have any international experience with Girlguiding please do not let this put you off applying as this is a fantastic opportunity.
