Contingent Management Team

As any scout knows, every adventure requires good planning and leadership. Each contingent is lead by an exemplary Contingent Management Team. This page is provides information for our Contingent Management Teams to help you prepare for the Moot.

Each NSO is required to appoint a Contingent Management Team (CMT) including a Head of Contingent. The CMT is responsible for its respective Contingent including participants and IST.  

Participants will be divided into small International Patrols during the Moot and will participate in programme at different locations around the country for the first half of the event– Trail Programme. For the second part of the Moot, all participants (and IST) will be located at the Basecamp in Malahide Castle. 

While the CMT are key to planning and establishing the contingent, they may find that they have a limited function in relation to their contingent during the Moot itself. This is due to the participants being split between international patrols and taking part in Trails in different places around Ireland. NSOs are therefore encouraged to appoint CMTs in the same age range as the participants, allowing them to join the participant Patrols and take part in the programme over the course of the Moot. Alternatively, CMTs 26 years of age or older are encouraged to assume IST functions during the Moot. CMT who are over 26 or who are not participating as participants will be accommodated at the IST campsite at the Basecamp location in Malahide Castle, Dublin.  

There will be a possibility to visit some of the Trail locations as a day tour, but this will incur an extra cost for those who wish to avail of this opportunity. CMTs may also hire cars, from service providers, if they wish to do some touring while International Patrols are taking part in the Trail programme. CMTs at the basecamp location are free to explore Dublin City during the Trail programme via local transport systems. 

In view of the age range of the participants and the limited function of CMTs during the Moot, the following restrictions apply to the number of CMT:

Fee Structure

The cost of the Moot is per Country group rate (A,B,C,D) as designated by WOSM (see fee panel).  

The Moot Entry fee covers the cost of the Moot event from the opening ceremony in Dublin City to the closing ceremony at the Basecamp location (Dublin). 

This includes all travel, food, accommodation and all programme elements. It will also cover insurance during the event and medical care (as provided by state medical services).  

The fee does not cover arrival and departure travel, pre and post moot programme or additional time spent in Ireland.   

The Moot Contingent Support Team will help in arranging and making suggestions for all additional items you wish to do as an addition to the Moot event. Head of Contingent meetings and exchanges will be the ideal place to make such arrangements. 

International Patrols and Tribes will be supplied with patrol equipment which includes dining shelters, tables, cooking equipment, basic first aid equipment. A full list will be provided in a future bulletin.

Participants will be expected to have their own camping equipment, personal eating kit, utensils and tentage (lightweight 2 person tent). Participants must be able to carry their tent with their personal equipment as they travel on the Trail programme.
