Jamborees & Events

"The real way to get happiness is to give out happiness. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it." As a final message from Baden Powell this is as relevant – if not more so - today as it was then and continues to inspire Scouts around the world.

Here at Travel Places we have a breadth of knowledge assisting Scouts and Girl Guides to explore the world and experience the wonder that only international travel can bring. We were the appointed agents to the UK and Canadian Contingents for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan and assisted more than 4,000 participants, IST and CMT with their travel to and from Japan and with their pre and post tours.

We also support districts, groups and units with both the planning and organising or their international adventures, both in Europe and further afield. Recent visit include: Iceland, Kenya and Kandersteg in Switzerland. Whether it is undertaking an Explorer Belt Challenge, completing a topic on the Queen's Scout Awards' IEV list or travelling on a group exchange visit, we have the experience to take away the pressures and leave you the time to enjoy the trip. There are Scout Associations in 216 countries and territories worldwide, so the only challenge is deciding where to go!

If you want to undertake a community project as part of your adventure then we have strong partnerships with charities in Kenya, Uganda and Peru and can facilitate an exchange between your group and those charities. Community projects can make a real difference, introduce an international angle into your Scouting Balanced Programme and are a perfect way to broaden a young person's horizons.

Thank you for your patience, flexibility, advice and support throughout the project. The dedication you showed throughout was incredible. The Contingent really enjoyed the pre-event experience and post-event tours. This of course was largely thanks to your thorough organisation and planning. Your support and expertise on the event allowed myself and the rest of the Contingent Management Team to really focus on ensuring the participants had the best possible time, for which I cannot thank you enough.
Richard Taylor, Contingent Manager, Roverway Finland 2012
I wanted to write to you to formally thank you for all your hard work and support over the last year on the Roverway project. I know that at times things were quite tough and you, and your team, often had to respond to late changes and last minute requests. Thank you for your patience, flexibility, advice and support throughout this project. The dedication you showed throughout was incredible. I know I speak for all the members of the Contingent Management Team and the International Office when I say that we could not have delivered the event without you.
Roverway CMT Team
Planning the logistics, accommodation and programme for over 4,000 people is very challenging and delivering this in the Japanese heat must have been a real challenge. Your team were professional and resilient throughout. Travel Places played a part in the success of the Jamboree Experience and your support is appreciated not only by the CMT but by the wider contingent.
Matt Hyde, Chief Executive - The Scout Association
Working with Travel Places certainly enhanced the experience we had. The staff were helpful and acted in a timely way to any query we had. Whether it was before our departure when they arranged wheelchairs at all of the airports for us, or on our departure from Tokyo when they helped with our overflowing luggage, their help was invaluable. We have begun planning our next adventure with Travel Places – I hope it will be the first of many!
Cath Wright, Unit 48 Scout Leader
Thank you to Travel Places for your amazing organisation, professionalism and customer service throughout the two year journey – we quite literally couldn’t have done it without you!
