We are pleased to announce the launch of our Friends of the Jamboree scheme, which allows you to support the Jamboree unit whilst getting something in return. For more details about the scheme, please see our Friends of the Jamboree page.
Details of other ways you can support the unit appear on the Fundraising section of our website.
We’re pleased to reveal the Unit badge for the Wiltshire Jamboree Unit. The badge was inspired by a design from one of our Unit members, and evolved to embody some of the ideals of the Jamboree and our Jamboree unit.
To see the badge, and for more information about it, see the Unit Badge page.
At the end of January, the Wiltshire Jamboree Unit met for the first time at Wiltshire Scout Centre for their first Training Weekend. It’s taken a lot of work to get to the stage where we have 27 Young People selected, but it was great to finally see them all together for the first time (and you can see them too on The Unit page).
After a fantastic Selection Weekend held at Youlbury Scout Activity Centre, we have selected our unit of 27 Scouts. Congratulations to all those that have been selected, and commiserations to those that didn’t quite make it.
After 7 weeks, and lots of really great applications, we have now closed applications. Those of you who have applied will be hearing from us by the end of the month about whether we would like to invite you to the selection weekend or not. Please keep an eye on your e-mails as if you are invited along there will be some important information being sent to you telling you what you will need to do and bring to the weekend.
Regardless of whether you get invited to the selection weekend or not, thank you to all of those who applied. All the applications were of a very high standard, and shortlisting the applications isn’t going to be an easy task!
Applications to be part of the Wiltshire Jamboree Unit are now open, and will remain open until 21st October. To apply, you must have be born between 28 July 1997 and 27 July 2001. Applicants will be shortlisted based on an online submission form, and then those on the short list will be invited to attend a selection weekend at the end of November. For full details on how to apply, please see the Selection pages.
