Welcome to JAPAN2015.org

“The home of UNIT55, Greater Manchester East’s World Scout Jamboree Unit for the 23rd WSJ in Japan.”

2015 will see a Spirit of Unity at the next World Scout Jamboree taking place at Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi City, Japan over the summer months of July & August. The jamboree will witness over 30,000 scouts from well over 150 countries eating, sleeping and working all under canvas for two weeks of excitement, challenges and achievements all adding up to make a truly once in a lifetime trip. However, its hardly straight forward for 36 hard working scouts from across the Greater Manchester East County who have been selected to represent the county and UK scouting as the UK’s UNIT55. They need to work and grow together developing into a well oiled machine ready to take on the challenges thrown at them before during and after their truly momentous trip.
Catch up on the mud, sweat and selection of the grueling selection weekend, follow along as they tackle several training camps designed to best prepare them for their trip or keep an eye on their fundraising attempts to help them step on board of the plane to Japan, all at JAPAN2015.org, the home of UNIT55, Greater Manchester East’s World Scout Jamboree Unit for the 23rd WSJ in Japan.
