We’re so excited that Somerset has been allocated three patrols to become part of the UK Contingent to the 25th World Scout Jamboree in Korea during 2023 joining more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world.

Our patrols are more than just travel buddiesthey are planners, workers, learners, enthusiasts, fundraisers, motivators and supportersWe’ve got a lot to achieve in a short time but we’ll leap at the challenge as we… Think Big. Dream Wild. Act Together.  

We now have our County Contingent Leadership Team together. Now, it’s time to look for young people who are interested in joining us.
