Louise from Broughton Guides and Rangers looks back fondly on her experiences of Poachers past.
We recognise that young people in the 14-17 age group have a wide range of interests and as such we are offering a range of options for them at Poacher 2022.
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 2022 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 2022 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.
Poacher's Global Development Village Manager, Alexander, talks about his experience of the recent World Scout Jamboree in the USA.
