After a gap of nearly 15 years, since the UK hosted the last European Jamboree in 2005, the next European Scout Jamboree will take place in Poland in July/August 2020. Building on the fantastic programme developed as part of their World Scout Jamboree bids, the Scouts and Guides of Poland will host participants for 11 days of activities, combining the chance to develop new skills, make new friends from across Europe (12 – 15,000 people are expected to attend) and experience Poland’s beautiful countryside. Based on its own island close to the city of Gdansk, the purpose built site is within walking distance of beautiful sandy beaches, pine forests and a short bus ride from the bustling city.
Dates: 27th July to 6th August 2020
