Report: Jamboree on the trail 2016

Each year, on the second Saturday in May, Scouts from across the world are invited to take part in a hike as part of the international Jamboree on the trail.

This was our fourth year of taking part and we had a record turnout as 12 Cubs were part of our group of 36 that returned to the South Downs. It was great that so many family members were able to join us for our hike. We’d been worried that it might be a bit cool on the trail but in fact it was a gloriously sunny afternoon which made the views from the South Downs Way even more spectacular.

At the start we bumped into a number of other Cubs and leaders from Petworth & Pulborough District who had been doing a similar walk on Saturday morning.

Each Cub that attended gets an extra hike added to their Hikes Away badge score and all our walkers will receive a JOTT19 souvenir badge. (Hikes Away badges are awarded at levels 1, 2, 5 and 10 so not everybody will get a badge this time but their participation has been recorded and everybody received points for attending).
