world scout jamboree bulletin 1 part 1

Simply Scouting

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree Sweden 2011 is Simply Scouting. Scouting in all its variety, from all across the world. Nothing more, nothing less.

The World Scout Jamboree mirrors the Scout world. All the diversity and knowledge from different Scout cultures around the world is gathered in one place. The event is inspiring and contributes to the development of the Scout movement.

Scouting delivers the answers to the needs of young people and this Jamboree is simply scouting. The 22nd World Scout Jamboree offers a modern programme that lives up to the challenges young people meet in today’s society. Scouts will leave with new tools to take action in their local and wider community.

The Scout method is a fundamental element of Simply Scouting. The Scout method and our common Scout values are the building stones for everything we do. We work in small groups, we trust young people to create their own experiences and learn from those experiences and we provide value-based leadership that is attentive and supportive.

All parts of the Jamboree experience are Simply Scouting and all are equally important. The 22nd World Scout Jamboree is a camp where spontaneous meetings are as valuable as the scheduled activities. Everyday elements of camp life - building, cooking and singing at a camp fire - all challenge Scouts to develop new skills and to meet, connect and work towards international understanding.

What is a bulletin?

The purpose of the World Scout Jamboree Bulletins is to provide National Scout Organisations with all the information they need, at the right time, to help prepare for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree. We have planned Bulletins once or twice a year throughout the lead-up to the Jamboree.

The Bulletins will be sent out through ScoutPak and our expectation is that you will then distribute the information to your members. Where Heads of Contingents have been appointed, we will also send the Bulletins directly to them.

In addition to the Bulletins there are several other ways to find information, the website being the main one.

When the participants leave the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden they will be able to say:
  • I’ve had the best two weeks of my l ife!
  • I’m proud to be me and to be a Scout
  • I ’ve learnt so much about people and
  • cultures from all over the world
  • I want to make a difference in the world
  • today and I feel ready to take action
