Activities

Spend half a day making contact with Scouts and Guides from around the world over the radio and internet, build your own electronic circuit and complete a number of badge requirements. When you’re exhausted from that, release the rest of your energy by taking part in a number of adventurous activities during the afternoon.

JOTI RADIO AT WOODHOUSE PARK

JOTI Radio will be broadcasting live from Woodhouse Park all weekend, and is a WOSM approved partner. Click here to listen live.

There are several badges that are radio and technology related, that can be achieved across sections, from Beavers to Explorers. Whilst it might not be possible to complete all the requirements for some of the badges, we will be concentrating on signing off those sections that are relevant to JOTA/JOTI. The remainder of the badge requirements can be completed with your own groups at a later date.

Please find an overview of JOTA/JOTI 2016 badge requirements here as a guide.
