World Scout Jamboree 2023
The World Scout Jamboree 2023 is open to all Young People to attend as participants whose Date of Birth falls between 22nd July 2005 â€“ 31st July 2009.
In Summer 2023, more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather in Korea for the 25th World Scout Jamboree.
Thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will be there, weâ€™ll call ourselves the UK Contingent. Swanley Scouts will be able to send 5 young people to take part in this amazing adventure!
The UK Contingent are more than just travel buddies, they are planners, fundraisers, motivators and mentors. Weâ€™ve got a lot to achieve in a short time, but weâ€™ll leap at the challenge as weâ€¦ Think big. Dream wild. Act Together.
