In a few days the Polish Contingent will set off to 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan. Polish scouts are preparing themselves for over a year to participate in this unbelievable adventure. During the last year they were learning Japanese customs and traditions as well as the basics of the Japanese language. They were also practising their English. Polish scouts an guides are well prepared to be a part of the event in Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan. They await their participation from the time when they knew that the Jamboree in 2015 will be in Japan.
The Jamboree Project Team also will be on the Jamboree in Japan! Look for the Polish National Tent in the World Scout Centre. You will find there many attractions and more information about Be The Spark idea!
Jamboree is a unique opportunity to meet Scouts from all around the world. This year in Japan there will be over 30 000 participants from 120 countries. As long as the age of participants is from 14 to 17, every scout has a unique chance to attend the Jamboree. Older can become IST member or group leaders. Polish scouts are ecstatic about the possibility to visit such distant country as Japan.
“This year, from 28 July to 8 August, the 23rd World Scout Jamboree will be held at Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan.
The theme for this year’s WSJ is “WA: a Spirit of Unity”. The Kanji Character “和” (WA) embraces many meanings such as unity, harmony, cooperation, friendship and peace. WA also represents Japan and its culture.
Through the active participation of Scouts from all around the world, the 23rd WSJ will be a mini world where participants discover, experience and learn the integration of tradition, cutting-edge technology, peace building efforts, and environment and disaster prevention measures.
Having gained this once-in-a-lifetime experience, these young Scouts will return to their countries as messengers of peace with the feeling of unity to create a better world ingrained in their hearts.” – scout.org
