About The KIJ Festival for Scouting and Guiding & Jamborees in General!
Jamborees offer unique opportunities and experiences, especially at KIJ The Festival of Scouting and Guiding due to the large scale and the gathering of over 8,000 people for a single event.
The sheer size of The Festival allows participants to engage in activities and discoveries that they might not have encountered otherwise in their lives. It's a chance for young people to come together from different parts of the world and interact with Scouts and Guides from various cultures and backgrounds. This cultural exchange can be eye-opening and educational, fostering an understanding of different faiths, beliefs, and customs.
Moreover, The Festival provides a platform for participants to explore a wide range of activities, spanning hundreds of different options some of which for our festival, will be a first for Scouting. This diverse array of activities helps young people broaden their horizons and develop new skills and interests.
Our Festival will offer unique and amazing ceremonies, shows, and live music performances by professional artists, talented young people and participants. These arena events create a lively atmosphere, and everyone can come together to enjoy the music and dance.In the evening our participants will be able to enjoy an extensive range of entertainment and activities on a scale they will not have experienced before. There will be themed evenings for older Scouts and Guides while leaders and staff teams can relax in our purpose built adult hub.
Our upcoming Festival in 2025 will emphasise sustainability. Such events can serve as a catalyst for promoting awareness and action towards protecting the environment. By incorporating a focus on sustainability, participants can learn about the importance of environmental conservation and understand their role in creating a more sustainable future.
Overall, Jamborees are undoubtedly remarkable experiences that bring young people together on an international level, fostering friendship, understanding, and personal growth. They offer a unique combination of fun, education, and cultural exchange that can have a lasting impact on the lives of the participants and their communities.
