Hampshire Scouts Marvellous European Road Trip 2023

Leader Applications

*** Last few remaining spaces now available ***

We are once again running a major International expedition as an alternative to the World Scout Jamboree in 2023.

Project 23 follows on from the very successful Project 19 Expedition to the USA for the last World Scout Jamboree cycle.

The Hampshire Youth Council voted for a three week expedition into Europe, and so we are now devising a fun filled three week coach trip, staying at multiple campsites undertaking loads of activities and sightseeing.

We have recently announced that we will be staying on Scout campsites in Austria, Ceczh Republic and Germany.

The expedition was initially available to all of the young people that applied for the World Scout Jamboree, and were not given a place on the World Scout Jamboree. We are now opening up applications so that we can fill 4 coaches (each at 57 passengers).

This means that we need 33 leaders to help lead and form 6 teams of 38, to lead through the remaining 4 training weekends over the next 15 months, and to lead the teams during the three week expedition in July / August 2023 (school summer holidays).

We already have 31 leaders in place, so we are looking for 2 more to join specific teams. Part of the selection process will be to ensure that the new leaders are able to integrate with the existing leader teams.

Applications are open to all Hampshire Adult Members of the Scout Association, however, you must be at least 18 as of 1st January 2022 (so born before 1st Jan 2004)

Hampshire Project 23 Financial Inclusion Grant Fund

To help assist applications from those that normally would not be able to afford to attend, the Hampshire Scouts Board of Trustee's have set up a Project 23 Grant Fund.

The Project 23 Grant fund is managed by the Hampshire Scouts Grant Committee, completely separate from the Project 23 Management Team. Applying for a grant has no impact on your application for a place on Project 23.

Grants are available for up to 50% of the cost for participants and leaders.

More details on how to apply for a grant will be sent after applications have been received.

Most Groups and Districts also make grants to those attending International Expeditions. Please ask your leaders who you should contact to find out further information on the policies for your Group / District.

Project 23 Leader Applications

We have produced a Project 23 Leader Q&A document, that all those interested in applying, should read first. This will answer a lot of questions around the expedition, but it was written in October 21.

To apply, please download and complete an application form and send it in.

Any Questions

If you have any questions, please read the Leaders Q&A document, and if this hasn't answered them, please send us an E-mail at [email protected]
