This the FIRST of the Cotswold Edge Scout District’s Jamborees, so we are using a theme of FIRST STEPS. The District has booked out the top fields of Woodhouse Park with a parking field, camping field, activity field and FOOD field. Yes there is central catering with provision for those with special dietary requirements which we need to know asap!


Saturday all day – all of the WHP activities have been booked as well as inflatables and additional external visitors/activities. Plus evening entertainment.

Sunday am – Each group will provide at least one activity that covers all age ranges or one activity for each, it’s up to you!


We want everyone to know everything as it happens and if you don’t hear anything ask!

We will be using this webpage with FAQs, the email address cotswoldedgedistrictjamboree@gmail.com, there is also a Facebook page and a Twitter account, just use the links at the top of the page.


We have a badge competition! the badge design should be a triangle (any kind), designers can use 7 colours and a theme of ‘First Steps’ let the YP use their imagination, why not schedule this activity in your welcome back meeting after the Christmas term? AND the badge can be worn on the uniform!
