MSF 2nd International Jamboree, 27-30 July 2023, Kibblestone Scout campsite.

” Scouting in the Muslim community emerged in the the late nineties and has seen phenomenal growth in the last 20 years. The Muslim Scout Fellowship (MSF) is the UK’s official body for all Muslim adults who are active in Scouting and is part of The Scout Association in the UK. The MSF is the largest Muslim youth organisation providing access to non-formal education for young people. Our passion is to ensure all young Muslims living in the UK are given opportunities to grow, develop, become confident and empowered young Muslims who are skilled to be the future change makers in society,” click here.
