ALL IN With a main programme for each month from now to next September, Join-in-Jamboree is the perfect way to plot your international programme throughout the Jamboree year. With Swedish programmes, community projects and global development work all included, your Network can use the resource to get some of the Jamboree atmosphere going wherever you are.

Welcome to this shorter issue of Network. We’ve reduced the page count so that we can fit a bumper Join-in-Jamboree booklet into your packet this month. But don’t let that stop you enjoying the articles we’ve lovingly prepared, crafted and designed

With the World Scout Jamboree coming round every four years, it’s a Scouting festival that every UK Member can get involved with, and Join-inJamboree is designed to provide inspiration for Network programmes that fit in with the key Jamboree themes. Make sure you take a good look at yours now, and start planning for the year ahead.

Triple moot We’ve taken an international theme ourselves this issue, with a look back at the incredible World Scout Moot in Kenya, which made history for so many reasons. There’s also a breakdown of other international opportunities you can sign up for.

News review We’ve been reviewing the kinds of stories you’d like to see in Network, based on your feedback in the magazine survey. We’re planning more programme ideas, more local stories and more input from Network members. If you’d like to be involved in putting the supplement together, get in touch with the editorial team at Help us out by putting ‘Scout Network supplement’ in the subject line.

Calling Sweden – Volunteer abroad

It is not just through Join-in-Jamboree that you can experience the essence of what is happening in Sweden next year The Scout Association is teaming up with its Swedish counterparts to offer a unique six month volunteering opportunity with the organisers of the World Scout Jamboree, based in Stockholm. We are looking for bright and enthusiastic applicants currently aged between 20 and 25. You must relish the chance to spend six months living in Sweden working directly with the Jamboree organisers. The Jamboree will take place in the summer of 2011 and will see 32,000 young people gather together from upwards of 150 countries to celebrate international Scouting and Guiding at its best. You will make a direct and significant contribution to this life changing event. The placement will begin on 4 March 2011 and end after the Jamboree in August 2011. This will be a particularly exciting time in the build up to and climax of the biggest Scouting event in the world. By volunteering you will be given a monthly living allowance, flights and accommodation in central Stockholm. You will also be given the opportunity to attend the Jamboree itself in 2011 and see the fruits of your labours. Applicants will need to be happy to undertake a range of tasks on behalf of the Jamboree organisers, from supporting local Units in Sweden to help planning preparations for the event. You will need to be open to new experiences and comfortable living in another country for a prolonged period of time.

What are you waiting for? Go to and apply online. The closing date is 5pm on Friday 3 December 2010. If you have any questions, please contact Patrick Rooke on 020 8498 5451 or email 4

Oz Moot 2010/2011 – Let your hair down (under) Emily Armitage has been to more moots than she has weddings, and has this to say about why you should moot it up down under to usher in 2011


he term moot was first used in a Scouting context by Baden-Powell in 1926, in a letter to Percy Bancock Neville. It came to mean a gathering of Rover Scouts and the term is still used today to describe meetings involving Scouts from the oldest sections. In fact, it could be argued that every time you camp with Network you are in fact attending a moot. Globally, moots have huge significance and the recent World Scout Moot in Africa is an important 10

example of this. However, my moot focus has become Australia where I will be leading a group of Scout Network members from the UK at the 18th National Australian Rover Moot (aka Oz Moot). This event will take place over 13 days from 30 December 2010 at Woodhouse Activity Centre in Adelaide. Oz Moot promises fun and adventure with a choice of activities ranging from a gourmet tour of local vineyards to cage diving with sharks. If that tickles your fancy, there is still time to sign up, but you have to be quick. You have until 15 November 2010 to commit. If you’d like to find out more or are interested in joining our trip you can contact me at or visit

Canada Moot, the most likely to feature moose

Oh Canada – Make 2013 your year The next World Scout Moot will take place in Canada in 2013. That may seem like a long way off, but plans are already underway to make this event bigger and better than anything that has come before. Every country in the world will be invited to send a contingent and if this summer’s event in Kenya is anything to go by, this is one not to be missed!
