The Leadership Training brings leaders from all over Europe together to experience other ways of Scouting & Jungschar. You get to know the differences and similarities of our work and have an insight to the Swiss Scouting methods. The program consist of pioneering technology workshops, terrain games, cooking on the fire, singing, sports, hiking, unforgettable evenings around the campfire and much more.
The Leadership Seminar gives you the opportunity to meet leaders from all over Europe and to join different workshops and lectures on intercultural communication, YMCA International and experience pedagogy. In addition, you can exchange your ideas with the other leaders on many exciting topics to take back new ideas and ways of working in your YMCA. And of course there will be campfires, hiking and lots of fun. All participants of the seminar are invited to the annual meeting of the ESG.
We are planning to organize the ESG Jamboree in 2018 in a location that is going to be decided soon. ESG Jamboree gathers scouts and jungschars from ESG countries together for a scout camp. More information is coming later. Remember to follow our homepage and social media accounts.
