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 Young Leading Beaver unit, my scouting life, school and my day to day life. I hope you enjoy getting to know me – 84
