Jamboree On The Air 2017 - Scout Activities

District Scout HQ Poplars

Saturday 21st October 2017

JOTA is an international event 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.

Stevenage Scouts set up a radio station capable of communicating with other Scouts around the home Counties, as well as those from other countries.

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 crystal radio capable of picking up stations such as Radio 5 without any batteries!

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 crystal radio activity runs from 10am to 12:00 noon and costs £13. The Scout communicator badge course runs from 1pm to 3:30pm and costs £4. The deadline for entries for the crystal radio project is Monday 9th October, in order to allow time to order the components.
