Like playing computer games? Then this ones for you!
Jamboree On The Air – Jamboree On The Internet (JOTA-JOTI) is an official international event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM)
It is where literally millions of Scout’s (of all ages – Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Network) and Guides from all over the world use a wide range of technology to communicate with each other.
Lots more information can be found on the official JOTA-JOTI webpage.
A unique and safe platform to consider the ‘world as one’, strengthening cultural values
An annual event in October, it can be held at a group level (in Lightwater), at a District level, or at one of the main national centres such as Gilwell. It is sometimes combined with other adventurous activities, but focuses on radio, internet, morse, tv and even uses puzzles and challenges to engage such as a ‘special minecraft’. Some places provide kits for the scouts to build their own mini transmitters, or even chat with the International Space Station! It develops sharing, communication and teamwork skills. Often leading to a badge to wear with pride.
