Characteristics of a Unit Leader

Unit leaders are at least 18 years old at the start of the Jamboree, have scout leadership experience and training courses (basic, advanced or panorama course) and can communicate in English. You will lead a unit in a team of four. At least two of the leaders should be over 21 years old at the start of the Jamboree and one should have a panorama course.

As unit leaders, you will be responsible for preparing your unit. You make sure that the spirit of the group is created, organize preparation meetings and hold joint financial actions. Of course, fun should not be neglected. At the Jamboree you are responsible for your participants, just like in a Swiss scout camp.

If you are a team already to lead a unit you have the possibility to apply as a group of up to four leaders. Note, that all have to do their own application. However, please send us an e-mail with the name of every person that is part of your team.
