Interamerican Scout Conference in Houston

Sparkmakers on tour! Delegation of Polish Scouting and Guiding Organization participated in the 26th Interamerican Scout Conference „Mission Possible” in Houston, Texas, USA. 

IARSC was a great opportunity to share our vision of Jamboree 2023 with delegates from Interamerican Region. Bilateral meetings were faull of detailed informations about visa regulations, proposed site of the 25th World Scout Jamboree, travel costs and many more. We were delighted to give a special present for all our new friends – teddy bears dressed in polish scout uniform as a gift from our cub scouts, who are celebrating their 100th anniversary.

The conference started with the day of workshops and official welcoming dinner. The highlight of the day was the speech by former astronaut and Scout – Mike Fossum. Next days: visit to the NASA and the International Evening were very excited that the participants liked our dishes (pierogi, bigos and traditional cakes) and dances – krakowiak and polonez.

We are happy that chargé d’affaires Republic of Poland Minister Maciej Pisarski, consule of Republic of Poland in Los Angeles Mr Ignacy Żarski and Deputy Mayor of Miasto Gdańsk Mr Piotr Grzelak were with us in Houston to support our bid to 25 World Scout Jamboree 2023.

Next stop: Arab Regional Conference in Muskat (Oman).

Be the spark and pass it on!
