What is “Join in Jamboree”?
The 15th World Jamboree, which was due to be held in Iran in 1979, was cancelled. Join in Jamboree (JIJ) was distributed to the participants for use in their own countries. This marked the beginning of JIJ. Since the number of participating Scouts at World Scout Jamborees is limited, JIJ has been provided to those unable to participate so they are able to experience the Jamboree Programme.
This year the 23rd World Scout Jamboree will be held in Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan, from the 28th of July to the 8th of August. The theme of the event is “WA: a Spirit of Unity”.
This year’s National Cub Challenge is the JIJ programme and provides a great opportunity for our Cubs to join in some of the Jamboree activities and, thinking ahead, prepare for Cubbing’s centenary celebrations next year.
