25th World Scout Jamboree – South Korea

If you were born between 22/07/05 and 31/07/09 you could be one of the 45 Scouts from Warwickshire who will join with thousands of Scouts from all over the world for the 25th World Scout Jamboree being held in South Korea during the first two weeks of August in 2023.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The cost of this jamboree has not yet been fixed, but purely as a guide the cost of the last jamboree held in the U.S.A. was £3550.

The cost shouldn’t be a bar though to any Scout who wants to take part. There are various funding sources to help with costs and 1st Bedworth will support you with fundraising if your are lucky enough to be selected for the Warwickshire Contingent. If you would like to know what it is like to take part on a World Jamboree then speak to Jess B or Zara Richards who attended the last jamboree in the U.S.A.

Registration for the Jamboree is not yet open, but in the coming weeks there will be an information night held where parents/careers and Scouts/ Explorers will be told all of the details of this exciting event.

We will keep this activity updated with the latest information.

This week our Cubs put in some amazing effort building shelters at the hut!

They were encouraged to be creative and all of our Cub Leaders were very impressed with not only the effort but each and everyone’s behaviour and helpfulness towards each other.

See what you think to their efforts…

All of our Cub Leaders are very proud of you, well done!

We also learnt about some of the famous people that were born in Bedworth.

George Elliot (Mary Anne Evans), Pete Doherty and Nick Skelton to name a few!

To bring out their creativity we asked our Cubs to design some posters to show parts of Bedworth and to promote the town, as always the Cubs did fantastic.
