25th World Scout Jamboree 2023

Think big. Dream wild. Act together.

In Summer 2023, more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather for the 25th World Scout Jamboree – South Korea. The World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) happens every four years, each time hosted by a different country. We’re so proud that thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will be a part of the UK Contingent.  

We don’t just dream. We act.

We dream about a sustainable world, where everyone’s welcomeBut we’re not just about dreamingScouts want to see action tooOur UK Contingent won’t silently creep round global issues, we’ll be trailblazers for getting young voices heard… you’re gonna hear us roar.  We know that dreams come true when we work together.

Fylde District Scouts have FOUR places available within West Lancashire Unit (55) to go to the Jamboree. Youth participants are eligible for selection if you were born between 22 July 2005 – 31 July 2009 and are open to all scouts and explorers of qualifying age.

The UK Contingent fee for participants is no more than £3,495. You will only need to fund 1/3 of this fee and this can be achieved through fundraising or grants. We suggest that those interested start thinking of ways they can fundraise, access grants – We really don’t want money to be a barrier to anyone being able to participate.
