Jurassic Jamboree – UPDATED

Broadstone join Branksome St. Aldhelms (BSA) Scouts for a week at Dorset’s brand new Scout and Guide Jamboree – Jurassic International Jamboree!!

And what a week it was!

We had one or two hiccups with the weather, especially on Sunday (our Day on Brownsea Island) when we were drenched through our waterproofs and to the skin! However most days were fine and so the rain was soon forgotten!

The awesome leaders from BSA looked after us by providing the catering while we looked after the Young People. The food was lovely and their setup was very professional.

We had a full on week and the activities included…

  • The Opening Ceremony
  • A Day on Brownsea Island
  • JIJopoly – Monopoly Run Around Dorchester, Weymouth and (for some) Portland
