A week of fun and freedom for international Scouts and Guides to meet together in Essex for an active and energetic programme of activities and opportunities.
The Essex International Jamboree is held every four years for the Scouts and Guides of Essex to experience the fun and challenge of living with a number of countries from around the world. The next Jamboree will run between the 30th July and 6th August 2016, and returns to Boyton Cross in Chelmsford to offer a whole week of activities and entertainment.
We are pleased to announce the Jamboree Chiefs for this event will be Karen Packer and Paul Walker. Both Karen and Paul worked as Deputy Chiefs for the 2012 event and are excited about taking on this joint role. "This is a great opportunity to extend the already strong links between Guiding and Scouting in Essex as we prepare for another week of international fun and friendship." commented Karen after the appointments had been made. "We are keen to impart the spirit of Scouting and Guiding throughout the 2016 Jamboree" added Paul.
They are now seeking expressions of interest for the Jamboree Executive Committee to start planning the event. If you are interested in a role please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date is 30th April 2013.
