Emily in year 9 and Adam in year 8 have both been chosen to represent the 1st Carlton-in-Lindrick Scout Group at the World Scout Jamboree in 2019.
They were chosen after a selection weekend was held where they had to complete physical and mental tasks that examined their problem solving, teamwork and leadership skills.
The World Scout Jamboree is the largest camping event organized by the Scout Movement, gathering as many as 50,000 Scouts and leaders from more than 200 countries. Co-hosted by Canada, Mexico and the United States, the 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, United States from July 22 – August 2, 2019.
The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace, mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills which includes a wide variety of outdoor adventure activities and places a great emphasis on everyday life and social interaction among different cultures that is experienced through the Scouting campsite. “Unlock a New World” is the chosen theme and hints of the new adventures, cultures and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the twelve day event.
Emily and Adam will be working with the rest of the Contingent to fundraise over £3,550 each during the next 18 months. This will not only enable their attendance at the event but also contributes to Scouts from other less fortunate countries allowing them to attend as well.
1st Carlton-in-Lindrick Scout Group have set up a just giving page to allow people to donate money to enable Emily, Adam and others to attend the event.
