Eurojam Information Evening
In August 2020 Girlguiding UK is sending a contingent of members to the European Jamboree in Poland and you can be a part of it!
The European Jamboree returns to gather young people from all over Europe in Gdańsk, Poland to celebrate Scout and Guide values, strengthen our international community and provide young people in Europe with the opportunity to meet and learn from each other.
Eurojam will be a memorable, once in lifetime experience and we are currently looking for leaders and guides/rangers aged between 14 – 18 years in July 2020 to represent not only Cheshire Forest & the North West Region but also the UK.
For more information on this exciting International Opportunity please come to the information evening on Thursday 07 February Pettypool Lodge @ 19.30 – 21.00hrs.
Please pass the invite onto any guides/rangers who are eligible to represent their county & country.
I look forward to meeting you in February
