Scouts and Explorers selected for the 25th WSJ

The World Scout Jamboree is held every four years and it is a 12 day camp attended by tens of thousands of Scouts from all over the world.
The 25th World Scout Jamboree will take place from 1 to 12 August 2023, in SaeManGeum, Jeollabuk-do, Republic of Korea. 

The young people selected to represent our area are from Scout Groups and Explorer Scout Units in Northwood and Ruislip.
 
The four young people going as members of the UK Contingent are: Alex (aged 13), Charlie (aged 14), Evie (aged 14) and Sam (aged 13).
The fifth young person is Hugo (aged 17) who will be going to the WSJ as a member of the International Service Team (IST) who volunteer to help run the activities on the campsite.
 
There was strong competition for places on the trip and each young person had to submit a detailed written application, then attend a full day of assessments and interviews.
 
Since being selected the Scouts and Explorers have been getting to know the other members of their Unit (they go to the Jamboree in Units of 36 Scouts/Explorers and 4 leaders), designing their own Unit logos, practising Scouting skills and learning about South Korea.
 
Each of the young people attending has to raise their own funds to go on the adventure to South Korea (just under £4000 per person). Taking responsibility for raising their own funding in the months before the trip is an integral part of the process.
