World Scout Jamboree

Tomorrow one of our Scouters Barry Kennedy will be joining 38,000 scouts from around the world (including 800 irish scouts) for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden. Barry will be part of the International Service Team (IST), the staff who will be running the jamboree.

A Jamboree is a special event that only happens once every four years and draws Scouts from all corners of the globe for two weeks of a Scouting festival. We’ve had scouts previously attend Jamboree’s in Korea (1991), Holland (1995) and Chile (1999).
