European Jamboree 2020

Polska

After a gap of nearly 15 years, since the UK hosted the last
European Jamboree in 2005, the next European Scout Jamboree will take place in
Poland in July/August 2020. 

Building on the fantastic programme developed as part of
their World Scout Jamboree bids the Scouts and Guides of Poland invite you to
join them for 11 days of activities, combining the chance to develop new
skills, make new friends from across Europe (12 – 15,000 people are expected to
attend) 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.
