Spin Offs Only a select few can attend a WSJ but the Jamboree experience is an important element of the Scout programme Every year there are many regional or local jamborees where the essence of the WSJ can be experienced on a smaller scale. e.g. Essex Jamboree.
Spin Offs A Join in Jamboree booklet is published with every WSJ year, containing programme activities for all sections. Jamboree on the air (JOTA) and Jamboree on the internet (JOTI), take place on the 3 rd Weekend in October and allow those who cant go to the WSJ itself, to meet and communicate with other scouts around the world. Jamboree on the trail (JOTT) is a Global Hike which takes place in May; during which Scouts all around the World will hike at the same time.

PREVIOUS WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREES Focussing in on the action in Sweden, 2011 and at Hylands, 2007
Selection In Essex, the selection process comprised of written applications, and a County-run residential selection weekend for potential participants.
Training There are a number of residential experiences for the units. This allows the members to bond together, and prepare themselves for their time away at the World Scout Jamboree.
These included activities designed to teach the young people valuable skills for their trip, and those which they will benefit from after the trip.
Along with fun activities to allow the young people to gel together as a group.
Departure The Essex Contingent Leaving Hylands Park – Chelmsford, UK (the location of the 21 st World Scout Jamboree); heading for Rinkaby, Sweden for the 22 nd World Scout Jamboree.
Multiple units moving through Heathrow Airport (and other public places) in their Formal Jamboree kit made quite an impression on the public.
Pre-Event Before moving on the WSJ site in Sweden, all of the UK Contingent Units spent two nights and action-packed days in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Pre-Event also consisted of a party put on specifically for the 4,000 young people in the UK Contingent.
A member of the UK contingent talks about her experience of the Pre-Event which took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, before the 22 nd WSJ.
The 22 nd World Scout Jamboree
The Opening Ceremony The first time the 40,000 scouts all gather together

Camp in Camp CiC was a unique element to the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden. Patrols of Scouts from the WSJ would be sent to spend time with Swedish Scout Troops as they put on Traditional Swedish camping experiences, in smaller camping locations away form the main site.
Home Hospitality Home Hospitality takes place before or after the main WSJ. There are two types of HoHo: Traditional HoHo – where British young people are paired and stay with host families to experience family and social life in the host country Hosted Stay – where smaller groups or whole British units go to stay with Scout Groups from the host country – either alongside a regular camp, or inside their Head Quarters

Baden-Powells Thoughts Brother Scouts. Differences exist between the peoples of the world in thought and sentiment, just as they do in language and physique. The Jamboree has taught us that if we exercise mutual forbearances and give and take, then there is sympathy and harmony. If it be your will, let us go forth from here fully determined that we will develop among ourselves and our boys that comradeship, through the world wide spirit of the Scout brotherhood, so that we may help to develop peace and happiness in the world and goodwill among men. From his closing address, 1st World Jamboree, London 1920.
This interview with a British participant at the 20 th WSJ in Thailand outlines how they feel International Scouting can have a huge positive impact on the world.
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING We hope that this inspires you to apply to go to the 23 rd World Scout Jamboree
