European Jamboree 2020

We are pleased to announce that one of our older Scouts has been successful in the application process and has been offered a place in the Devon Unit to take part in the European Scout Jamboree in Poland 2020.

The next European Scout Jamboree will take place in Poland in July/August 2020. The Scouts and Guides of Poland play host to an expected 12-15,000 Scouts from across Europe to join them for 11 days of activities, combining the chance to develop new skills, make new friends and experience Poland’s beautiful countryside.

Based on its own island close to the city of Gdansk, the purpose-built site is within walking distance of beautiful sandy beaches, pine forests and a short bus ride from the bustling city.

More information can be found on the European Jamboree website at, and on the Facebook page:
