I am an Explorer Scout and Beaver Young Leader from Gloucestershire in the UK, and have been involved in Scouting since I was a Beaver myself.
In 2017 I passed the selection process to be part of the UK Contingent to go the 24th World Scout Jamboree. I originally created this blog while I was waiting to find out if I had been selected so that I could share that journey with others.
On the selection weekend I was given the number “84” and so I used that for this blog and to keep my “Scouting” social media accounts separate from my personal ones.
Since I started this blog I have also applied, and been selected, to attendee the next European Jamboree being held in Poland in 2020. However, due to the postponement of Covid-19, I was now too old to participate.
I have also been offered a place on the 16th World Scout Moot held in 2022.
I intend to continue to use this blog to post about my Jamboree Experiences, along with stories about my Beavers, my scouting life and more.
