Jamboree On The Air 2016 - Scout Activities

District Scout HQ Poplars

Saturday 15th October 2016

JOTA and JOTI are international events held on the third full weekend in October, offering all members of Scouting the opportunity to communicate with fellow members from around the world, via radio and the internet.

Stevenage Scouts set up a radio station capable of communicating with other Scouts around the home Counties, as well as those from other countries. JOTI chat rooms are often also available for internet chat with Scouts from all over the world.

Additional activities with a communication theme are also available. For the Scout section this year you can work towards the Communicator Activity Badge and / or build a flashing red LED safety light, ideal for clipping on your rucksack for night hikes or as an additional rear bike light!

To take part in any of the activities, please complete the form on the information letter and return it to your Scout Leader or the District Scout shop, at Poplars on Monday evenings. The building a flashing red LED safety light activity runs from 1pm to 3pm and costs £15. The Scout communicator badge course runs from 3pm to 6:00pm and costs £4. The deadline for entries for the flashing red LED safety light project is Monday 3rd October, in order to allow time to order the components.
