Report: Jamboree on the trail 2017

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 fifth year of taking part and we had a record turnout as 13 Cubs were part of our group of friends and family (and dogs) that returned to the South Downs. It was great that so many family members were able to join us for our hike. Numbers were further increased by 17 Dauxwood Cubs and their families who joined us this year.

You are never guaranteed good weather but this year it was again a gloriously sunny afternoon which made the views from the South Downs Way even more spectacular.

Each Cub that attended gets an extra hike added to their Hikes Away badge score and all our walkers will receive a JOTT20 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).
