Avon Adventure News – new date

Save the date: 31 May – 3 June 2022

Dear Scouter,

2020 has been a challenging and eventful year for everyone. In amongst all the uncertainty, we as Scouters, have shown that we can come together and adapt to anything. From having weekly meetings on Zoom to socially distanced campfires, we have managed to bring some joy and consistency to the young people in both the national lockdowns and new tier restrictions. As a county, I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved together!

This year was meant to be a big year for Avon as we planned to host Avon Adventure, the County Jamboree. This, however, did not go ahead as planned as we needed to put the health and wellbeing of the young people and volunteers first (well, that and the little matter of the national lockdown!).

It is, however, my pleasure to announce that we have now confirmed the new date for the event with North Somerset Showground. Avon Adventure 2022 will be taking place from Tuesday 31st May to Friday 3rd June 2022. The dates have been chosen to tie into half-term and the Queens Platinum Jubilee allowing us to benefit from an additional Public Holiday.

It is hoped that by moving the Jamboree to 2022, we can ensure everyone’s health and safety is our primary concern whilst maintaining an adventurous event.

Just like before, the Jamboree will be open to all members of Avon Scouting, Girlguiding Bristol and South Gloucestershire and Girlguiding Somerset North from Beavers and Rainbows to Rangers and Network. It is an event you don’t want to miss so make sure to add the date to your diaries now…

We look forward to seeing you there and will send out more information in due course.

For the time being, my team and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Stay safe,
Isabelle Mills
