European Scout Jamboree 2020, Poland

Unfortunately due to the outbreak of Covid-19 the European Jamboree 2020 has been postponed until 2021. It will still be called the European Jamboree 2020: it will just be held in 2021. Sadly, as it will breech safeguarding rules, we have had to say farewell to a number of the unit. They have helped form the unit and will be truly missed; however that does mean that more people from our reserve list will get the chance to become a unit member and experience that awesome Wilki feeling.

After an epic pre Jamboree tour taking in some of Europe’s great cities, the unit will arrive at the Jamboree site in Poland. 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.

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.

New Dates 2nd-13th August 2021
