In Summer 2023, more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather in Korea for the 25th World Scout Jamboree. We’re so proud that thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will be there, we’ll call ourselves the UK Contingent.  

Our Contingent are more than just travel buddies, they are planners, fundraisers, motivators and mentors. We’ve got a lot to achieve in a short time but we’ll leap at the challenge as we… Think big. Dream wild. Act Together.  

We don’t just dream. We act. 

We dream about a sustainable world, where everyone’s welcome. But we’re not just about dreaming, Scouts want to see action too. Our UK Contingent won’t silently creep round global issues, we’ll be trailblazers for getting young voices heard… You’re gonna hear us roar.  

We know that dreams come true when we work together.

Sarah Halliwell

District Jamboree Co-Ordinator

I have been a Leader at 1st Goosnargh Scouts for the last 5 years and am a member of the District ADC team. Within my Scouting role I am also the participant admin lead for Red Rose 2022.

I have been fortunate enough to take part in some amazing trips and events during my time in Scouting such as Guernsey, Jersey and Red Rose, which has given me some fantastic experiences and opportunities that I wouldn’t have had the chance to do outside of Scouting – this was something that inspired me to take on the role to give something back and to help as many young people as possible have a chance to take part in such a once in a lifetime opportunity as the Jamboree.
