World Scout Jamboree Badge Challenge!

15 March 2014

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

I have luckily been selected to go to Japan inUK-Contingent-Logo_CMYK_small 2015 for the World Scout Jamboree, as part of the UK contingent. Because of this i need to fund raise and i have created Dorking’s very own challenge badge! (details can be found by clicking here)

 
The World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is the largest, regular event organised by the Scout Movement. It takes place every four years in a different country. The first WSJ took place in England in 1920 and the 23rd WSJ will take place in Japan in the summer of 2015. 30,000 Scouts and Guides aged 14 – 18 years from almost every country in the world will come together and camp in a purpose made town for 10 days.

 
The purpose of this badge is to provide members of Scouting and Girlguiding with fun activities whilst learning about jamborees, Japan and international opportunities with Scouting or Girlguiding. If you prefer not to attempt the activities, you can just buy the badge to support me.

 
As I have been selected for the Jamboree the proceeds from this badge will help raise money for me to attend. Part of the money I have to raise will go towards funding Scouts from developing Countries to attend the Jamboree too.
The challenge consists of 5 different sections. I suggest that, to gain the badge, Rainbows and Beavers must do 5 activities, Brownies and Cubs complete at least 8, Guides and Scouts and over must complete at least 10, with everyone doing at least one from each section.

 
There are several website links in the resources section of this pack to help you. You could use this badge during your meeting time or perhaps as part of an activity day or sleepover. Once you have finished, don’t forget to send off for your badges (see order form at the back of this booklet).

 
I hope you enjoy yourselves whilst completing this challenge!
