A few facts whilst waiting for the Opening Ceremony…

The opening ceremony is just hours away and we are all SO excited! Here are a few facts just to make you a bit more excited and help you realise how BIG the Jamboree actually is:

  • Adults at the Jamboree are using 3 million hours of holiday time to be here for scouts from around the world.
  • The total money raised to attend the World Scout Jamboree- More than £14 million
  • The number of hours spent fundraising- 2.3 million
  • 48,000 days of pre event training undertaken by the UK contingent

These numbers are AMAZING and we honestly can’t thank all of our Adult Volunteers for giving our scouts the adventure of a life time!
