A limited number of places were made available to UK Scouts to attend the American Scout’s National Jamboree next summer and Scouts from Essex have been lucky enough to get a place.

When The Scout Association was only granted places for 24 young people to attend the Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree, an invite was sent for patrols in the UK to apply for the places.

Dovercourt Sea Scout Group have been successful in their application and are busy in the process of arranging their deposit for the event and are preparing themselves to represent the UK at the event.
