What is Essex International Jamboree?

EIJ2020 is coming! We will be returning to Boyton Cross, Chelmsford from the 1st to the 8th of August 2020 for another unforgettable seven days and nights, bringing Scouts and Guides together from across the UK and around the world. 

In 2016, we saw 10,000 of us (plus over 2,000 volunteers) come together, making international friendships and challenging ourselves with over 100 activities from abseiling to zorbing. Don’t miss our regular updates and for more information, use the links below.
