European Jamboree Unit 2021 – Team Members and IST

European Jamboree
After a gap of nearly 16 years, since the UK hosted the last European Jamboree in 2005, the upcoming European Scout Jamboree will take place in Poland in August 2021. 11 days of activities, combining the chance to develop new skills, Celebrate Scout and Guide values, strengthen our international community and provide young people with the opportunity to meet and learn from each other and experience Poland’s beautiful countryside.

Hampshire are planning to take one unit, and a number of IST (International Service Team) Members.

The European Jamboree was due to take place in July 2020, but has had to be postponed due to Covid-19 to August 2021. 

When and Where?
The European Jamboree will take place between the 2nd August 2021 – 13th August 2021 (it will take a couple of days each side to travel there and back by coach). Based on its own island close to the city of Gdansk, the purpose-built site is within walking distance of beautiful sandy beaches, pine forests and a short bus ride from the bustling city.

Our Vision
The aims of the event are to Encourage participants to recognise their potential and the opportunities that are available to them in the world. Giving young people the opportunity to learn how to embrace challenges, develop self-reliance, build self-confidence and spark off the need for continuous self- improvement.
