During the summer of 2019, hundreds of Scouts from across West Lancs will jet off to various overseas destinations to take part in fun and adventurous international opportunities that will help them develop skills for life, including a county lead Community Project in Uganda and participation in the Haarlem Jamborette in Holland. The County is seeking volunteers to join the leadership teams of these two trips to help them plan and deliver a truly fantastic and memorable experience for our members.
Uganda Community Project
In Summer 2019 West Lancs Scouts will send a contingent of 30 young people to build a farm and dig a bore hole in Bulera, Uganda. The leadership team, led by Rebecca Churchill, is looking to recruit one final adult to join them and help prepare the 30 young people for an incredible experience. If you have enthusiasm, skills and experience that you can bring to the team then have a read of the information pack and put in an application, you might just have an incredible time!

West Lancs will be forming a joint contingent with Slovakian Scouts to attend the Haarlem Jamborette. Sharing scouting experiences and learn about each other’s lives and the cultures and most importantly to have a good time together. There we will be doing lots of activities, cooking and camping alongside our new friends from Slovakia, including a pre or post Jamborette experience in Amsterdam.
There are two opportunities to join the leadership team being led by Ray Worthington. We are seeking an experienced leader who has organised many nights away, has excellent camping skills and has worked with the Scout or Explorer Scout Section to take on the role of Deputy Leader. There is also a role for a passionate and enthusiastic individual who wants to broaden their Scouting horizon to join the team as an Assistant Leader.
