About WINGS

WINGS started in the 1993 as the result of a national Scouting initiative, which challenged Scouts to deliver an activity in collaboration with Girlguiding, and welcomed just over 2,700 young people, leaders and staff from 22 countries (including many European countries as well as Bahrain, Japan, Uganda, and the USA) and grew at each subsequent event which all took place on the same site in Windsor Great Park in 1998, 2003 and 2009.

The most recent, WINGS 2014, was the biggest yet: 7,000 people from 41 countries from the far flung corners of the globe including New Zealand, Canada, Panama, Nigeria and Russia. WINGS is a well-established and a truly international Scouting and Girlguiding event!

 

The location of Windsor Great Park is probably the best venue for an international Scout and Girlguiding Jamboree in the UK! The camping and main activity area is a royal deer park adjacent to the famous Long Walk. Windsor Castle (overlooking the event) and the historic town of Windsor are within walking distance of the site. For each WINGS jamboree we aim to deliver a unique and exciting event that is relevant to young people and gives access to new and traditional Scouting and Guiding activities.
