JOTAJOTI is easy to run from your Scout Hall. All you need is a couple of people from your various branches – Cubs, Scouts, Rovers – and a Scouter or two to organize the weekend. It’s a great opportunity to have Pack and Troop working together. Run a badge or two over the weekend, and take part in the International game, JamPuz. All details are on the Jota Joti info page. There is also no need to run the entire weekend. You can choose the days according to your Group’s schedule. The busiest times are on the Saturday.
The sooner you register, the sooner you can start planning your event!
