2019 World Scout Jamboree

Following on from Rachael in 2007 and Jack in 2011, one of our Scouts, Jasmine (now an Explorer), is going to the  World Scout Jamboree.

The 2019 World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills. It is being held in West Virginia in the USA and is being hosted by the Scouts of Canada, Mexico and the USA. You can see all about it at their website.

Jasmine is part of the Staffordshire contingent and they travelled to the USA yesterday (Saturday 20th July 2019).

See more photos here.

Today (Sunday), they are in New York doing some sightseeing before they go off to the WSJ itself.

Jasmine will be sending us photos and updates when she can, so keep your eyes open!
