Brownsea Island Experience

The Brownsea Island Experience

2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree

We’re Looking For A Few Good “Lads”

The Brownsea Island Experience is recruiting Youth Staff members for the 2010 National Scout Jamboree to portray the young men that accompanied General Baden-Powell on the very first experimental Scout campout to England’s Brownsea Island in 1907.

Perhaps you visited the Brownsea Island exhibit during the 2005 Jamboree and saw what terrific fun it was. Or, you saw it in previous Jamboree videos, or on television, and saw how the “lads” dressed in period clothing of the day, spoke with British accents and relived the founding of Scouting. Even if one of your Scouting friends just told you about the historical re-enactment of the games those boys played and the lessons they learned, you realize that it’s a great way to be a special participant at the Jamboree.

Well, here’s your chance to portray a key figure in the birth of Scouting, use your acting skills and be one of the most highly-photographed persons at the jamboree - all while having plenty of time to see the Jamboree yourself – and at discount prices!

If you will be between the ages of 16 and 21 during the Jamboree, you qualify to be on
Jamboree Youth Staff for the total price of $397.50, which includes your meals and housing.
That’s only half what adults pay!
