We are now launching applications for both Participants and Leaders for the 25th World Scout Jamboree in Korea in 2023!
All the information is live on the Hampshire Scouts Jamboree website:
We have produced a lot of help and information on the website, as well as the application process (which includes online forms, paper forms and video applications).
The Scouts have set a major focus on inclusion, and we have listened to this in Hampshire.
All Scouts, Explorers and Leaders that fall in the correct age ranges, are invited to apply for a place on the Jamboree.
To help with financial inclusion, the Hampshire Scouts Board of Trustees have set up a major Grant Fund, that can give grants of up to 50% for participants and leaders (depending on financial circumstances).
These grants (coupled with grants from Groups and Districts and some fundraising efforts), should mean that any Scout, Explorer or Leader should be able to afford to take part, even if normally they wouldn't expect to be able to.
Please can we ask you to share the launch around your Scout Groups, Explorer Units and Leaders, to ensure that everybody is aware of the Jamboree, how to apply, and the availability of grants.
Our aim is that EVERY Scout, Explorer and Leader in Hampshire knows about the Jamboree, and that it is open to all.
