Society Supports Young Scouts Heading to Japan

As a result of the generosity of Lord Baden-Powell Society members, last year the Jamboree Fund was used to support over 300 young Scouts to attend the Australian Jamboree in Maryborough, Queensland. These are young people who without that support would not have been able to attend.
Over the past few years, the focus of the Jamboree Fund has been to provide assistance to young Scouts from needy families to attend Australian Jamborees and Ventures. Due to the continued generosity of our members, we now feel it is time to expand the scope of our support to include young people who might not otherwise be able to attend the World Jamboree in Japan in July/August 2015. Our goal is to provide $50,000 to ensure 12 young Scouts who otherwise could not attend be there. The Jamboree program will be based on the concepts of world peace and harmony between nature and humankind. A World Jamboree is an experience of a life time and due to the relative proximity of Japan and the strength of the Australian dollar, levels of interest in the event are at historic highs.
