JOTA-JOTI Jamboree

15th – 17th October 2021

JOTA-JOTI is about the 21st century skills you can learn in Scouting and the values of global citizenship. The event is open to Scouts around the world, enabling young people to connect and communicate with each other using the Internet and amateur radio. JOTA-JOTI engages youth in educational activities that build teamwork, cross-cultural understanding and skills for the future.

Get involved

Cheshire Scouts invite you to take part in this special event this October. Scouting is a global movement and we welcome as many Scouts as possible to join us in this unique international discovery weekend. We have prepared an activity pack, full of ideas and things to consider in order for you to host your very own event either at home for yourself or with a local Colony, Pack, Troop, Unit, Group or District! We recommend seeking the support of your local ADC and District Commissioner if setting up a group event. Why not let the county team know too and we can visit during the weekend!
