JOTI 2022

Our scouts took part in JOTI this year, with an evening of connecting with other scouts from around the world.

We spoke to scouts in Namibia, the Philippines, Scotland, Sweden, Denmark, New Zealand, Belgium, Turkey, Costa Rica, USA and Israel, as well as lots of scouts from elsewhere in England.

“Jamboree on the air” event a success


Today 60 young people (plus siblings and parents!) took part in the 58th JOTA today. We had 24 Beavers, 25 Cubs, 8 Scouts and 3 Explorers talk over the radio airwaves to other Scout groups they also tried out Morse code machines too! Great fun was had by all and a huge thank you goes to the West Kent Amateur Radio Society for spending the whole day with us.

We even managed a few conversations as part of JOTI (Jamboree on the internet), including contacting someone from Borneo and Malta.  We will be a bit more organised on that front next year.
