European Jamboree 2020

A new inspiring Scout and Guide adventure is taking place in the summer of 2020. After the last EuroJam in 2005 in the United Kingdom, the European Jamboree returns to gather young people from all over Europe to celebrate Scout and Guide values, strengthen international communities and provide young people in Europe with the opportunity to meet and learn from each other.

The European Jamboree takes place in Gdańsk, Poland, from 27 July to 6 August 2020. It is a joint WOSM and WAGGGS event hosted by the Polish Scouting and Guiding Association.

Berkshire Scouts Unit

Scouts from across the county set to attend the European Jamboree next summer have met for the first time and activities included ice breakers and team games. There was also a family barbecue where the Scouts found out more about what they will be doing in Poland next Summer. The Unit is now excited to be at the start of their twelve month adventure.

Congratulations to all the Scouts who have been selected to represent their Districts. Our next Unit get-together will be at the Explode Camp after the summer and we really can’t wait!

The European Jamboree Unit invites Groups to take part in Central Europe activities to celebrate the event over the next twelve months. Those interested in the Berkshire Join-Badge should expect to see our Join in activities launch this September.
