Since 1920 when the Boy Scouts Association organised the first World Jamboree for Scouts in London Olympia, Baden Powell continued to show its members the wonders of the world by arranging world tours for both the Scouts and the Girl Guides until his retirement in 1938.

 

From the first Jamboree when just 8,000 Scouts from 34 countries attended the event, opportunities for youth groups to travel overseas has grown incredibly.

As mentioned by Tim Kidd (UK Chief Commissioner) in the Skills for Life 2018 – 2023 strategy:

I believe that Scouts empowers young people. It gives them the skills to achieve the remarkable and opportunities to develop a deeper understanding of the rapidly changing world.

Tim Kidd – UK Chief Commissioner

Today the opportunities are more accessible than ever and with the support of CANVAS & COMPASS TRAVEL there is no time like the present to plan your next trip.

 

The staff at CANVAS & COMPASS have a wealth of passion, knowledge and experience in organising youth group tours. Having worked with The Scouts in a previous role they have arranged for the UK contingent to attend key international events across the world.

We can arrange anything from a full package to individual travel components such as flights, coach transfers and accommodation to coincide with your existing plans & arrangements. We can support you and arrange links with international and national scouting events, world or national scout & guiding centres, community projects, adventure challenges and cultural exchanges.

And remember don’t just be a tourist…… Be a traveller, Be an explorer, Be an adventurer! With 170 members of WOSM and 150 members of WAGGGS the list of destinations to visit is endless!

There are numerous international Scouting and Guiding events that take place every year in the UK, Europe and further afield. These are the perfect opportunities to immerse your group into an amazing international adventure as you not only meet Scouts and Guides from the host country but other visiting countries too.

Awards such as Explorer Belt, Queen’s Scout Award and the Duke of Edinburgh Award are an integral part of a Scout or Guides progression through the movement. Canvas & Compass Travel can help facilitate award expeditions and residentials to help them complete the award programme.

If you don’t have a group to travel with then that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on the action! Whether you want to travel on your own or with a couple of friends or Scouting & Guiding colleagues we can still help with your travel arrangements.

Whether it is a community project in Kenya, an adventure challenge in Iceland or a cultural exchange in Peru we can create the ultimate trip. Our itineraries are tailored to the needs of the group - theme, location, duration, group size, cost. The great thing about a Bespoke Group Adventure is that your travel dreams really can become a reality.
