Four Mansfield Explorers, Alex, Emma, Jenny, and Jade (1st Larch Farm Scouts), have been chosen along with 34 other young people from Nottinghamshire to represent the 8500 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts in the county at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.
The Jamboree is a gathering of tens of thousands of Scouts and Guides from almost every country in the world who, for ten days, live together, experience each others cultures, take part in exciting activities and have an amazing adventure. To attend a World Scout Jamboree is the pinnacle of a Scouts career in Scouting, and only a lucky few get to attend. Kirara-hama, Japan will be the host in 2015.
You can follow our Explorers’ progress, including preparation camps and fundraisers, on their website www.mansfieldcontingent.org.uk/
