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.
These are some challenging days and it’s the children like you who have led the way in helping to cheer us all up.
Have you been drawing and painting rainbow pictures to spread a bit of hope and cheer at this difficult time?
If so, please send in your brilliant rainbow pictures to [email protected] so we can share them with the group and make a massive rainbow collage to spread the hope message further. If you haven’t already done one, get creative and make one to add to the collage.
Do you have an hour to kill while your child is at a meeting night?
Can you spare 15 minutes at the beginning or end of a meeting night?
Are you wondering what to do some Sunday afternoons?
If you’re interested in volunteering some of your time then drop in and see what it’s all about! We’re looking for Parents who would like to get involved but don’t know where to start or even what to do! Everybody has a skill or a strength that we are looking for. All that’s missing from our Scout Group is you.
This will be a brilliant camp which will see Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and adults from most of the Scout Groups in Nuneaton District camping together for a weekend of fun and activities. Activities may include zip wire, pedal karts, archery, shooting, abseiling, climbing, kayaking , rafting, craft and much more. All of the meals will be cooked in a central ‘cookhouse’ by a catering team so that everyone taking part can have the maximum amount of time on activities. The £35 camp fee includes all activities, food and camp fees. Parents will need to arrange transport to and from Willesley Scout Camp which is in Leicestershire.
We are also looking for a number of parents who would like to join us for the weekend to help us with catering, activities and supervising the youngsters as our leadership team will be at full stretch helping to provide the many activities during the weekend. The cost for parents is just £15 to cover food & camp fees costs. Please speak to Woody for more information.
