The Suffolk and Regional units for the World scout Jamboree 2019 will be running a unit selection on Saturday 18th November 2017 at Stowmarket High School from 08:00 – 17:00 (approx.)

Based on the previous Jamboree applications (over 100 applied) we are expecting a healthy response and to enable the Suffolk and Regional unit leaders to select young people to attend the WSJ, we really need some help from leaders across the county.

On the day we will need activities that will allow young people to actively demonstrate the values of Scouting – care, co-operation, respect, integrity and belief, we need leaders/previous Jamboree participants that would be able to run activities that will show the following

  • Ability to work with others and form friendships (Cooperation) 
  • Commitment to include others, listen and value others (Respect) 
  • Demonstrate the importance of being honest, trustworthy and loyal (Integrity) 
  • Help other people / look after surroundings (Care) 
  • Express their views and take time to hear others (Communication) 
  • Willing to take responsibility (for themselves, possessions and tasks) and make choices (Responsibility) 
  • Demonstrate willingness to participate, learn by doing and have fun (Participation) 
  • Commitment to the Jamboree experience, including training events (Participation) 
  • Open and willing to explore faiths, beliefs and attitudes that are different than their own (Belief)

We also need leaders to,
  • observe the scouts on the day and to provide feedback 
  • assist with the smooth running of the day and ensure that everyone is where they should be
