World Scout Jamboree- It’s Time To Apply!!!

Calling Scouts, Explorers and Young Leaders
Is your date of birth between 29 July 1997 and 28 July 2001?

What’s the fuss about?

A World Scout Jamboree happens once every four years and this is your one chance to attend as a young person. Lonsdale District has secured four places to send four young people to the largest event in Scouting.


A World Scout Jamboree is an immense event involving many thousands of Scouts from all corners of the globe. Anyone who has been to a previous World Jamboree will tell you what a wonderful event it is — the pinnacle of their scouting life, friends made from many different countries and the profound effect it has on their future life.


The next one is in Japan, so there is a chance to travel and experience an entirely different culture. Plus you get to share this with a bunch of people who will be your friends well before the time you head off to the plane – the West Lancashire WSJ2015 Unit.

Why now?

Applications to join the unit are open from now until 7th February 2014. This will enable us to select the Lonsdale unit members and then get on with our fundraising tasks.

How can I find out more?

Good luck to each and every one of you!!!
