European Jamboree 2020 (+1)

Sadly the European Jamboree rescheduled to 2021 has been cancelled


This week after careful consideration, the organisers of the European Jamboree have decided to cancel the 2020(+1) event and we have stood down our unit.

This news will be very disappointing for the young people and volunteers when so much time and energy has been spent on preparing for the event. The decision was not taken lightly, it was made to put the safety and wellbeing of everyone first.

We place on record our thanks to the Norfolk Unit Leaders and International Service Team members for their work preparing for this event.

Despite the very difficult decision they have made, and with still a lot of work ahead of them the Jamboree organisers remain buoyant and optimistic. Please take time to watch this video message from them with captures the ethos of Scouting and Guiding.

If you were a Norfolk participant and have questions please contact Shelly O’Keefe or Tim Rowe
