With the next Jamboree just a few years away and being in America international activities are at the forefront of our minds in Greater Manchester North Scout County.

Opportunities are available to go on an international activity from Beavers right through to Network and beyond. From day trips, to pen pals to weeks abroad in many of the exciting countries we have on our doorstep and further afield.

The Scout Association has many links with World Organization of Scouting Movements and welcomes Scouts from around the world to visit the UK and encourages Scouts from the UK to do the same.

Here in Greater Manchester North with the Jamboree on the way, as well as lots of other opportunities, it is time to start growing the team and the Young People who will get to go on the adventure of a lifetime. Watch this space for more information.
