Dorset Scout’s World Scout Jamboree Leader Selection Camp took place last weekend at Buddens Scout Centre
Twelve candidates attended the camp, all were worthy of a Leadership position but only seven spaces were available
These candidates make up two fantastic Leadership teams and I am very proud of them as I am sure you will be too. I am also very proud of the Leaders that we were unable to place.
I look forward to supporting the Units in their preparations for the Jamboree.
Dorset County Scouts

A local Scout from Dorset, who has various difficulties in movement and hearing impairment, was really out of her comfort zone when it came to crate stacking. One of the candidates talked her through the whole way up, encouraging her and motivating her. She got up 11 crates. She now wants to apply for the Jamboree herself – thanks to that Leader – who of course got selected!!
Young People Selection Weekend will take place early this Autumn. Details and application forms will be emailed and available on Dorset Scouts County Website.
