My first Poacher experience was in 2004 when our group from Alberta, Canada was hosted by a British Girl Scout unit. I didn’t have any idea what to expect and was so pleasantly surprised by the event that I took a different group of girls in 2008. I told those girls that it was a week long International event that they would never forget.
As for all Guiding and Scouting events they couldn’t take place without volunteers. Without volunteers at Poacher there would be limited activities, no medical team, no admin function and no leaders to bring and support the participants – there wouldn’t be a Poacher as we know it.
2019 has been a busy year for the Poacher 2021 Senior Management Team and the Senior Leadership Team.
Scouts and Guides from across the globe enjoy the adventure of a lifetime at Poacher. Find out more about the support we offer for international attendees.
Poacher 2021 is one of England's biggest Jamborees and with Scouts and Guides from across the world taking part, we thought it would be a good idea to tell you a bit more about the county and city.

With 2 years to go until Poacher 2021, we are excited to announce the launch of our brand new website!
At the end of Poacher 2017 the organisers all breathed a sigh of relief – the event had been a real success, now we could take a well-earned break! But as the site cleared and the big clean up began we started to talk about “next time.”
It seems like only yesterday that Diversity were closing our 2017 event after another hugely successful jamboree. Fast forward two years and we’re already halfway through planning for Poacher 2021!
