The 22nd World Scout Jamboree officially got under way this morning.
The 22nd World Scout Jamboree is being held in Rinkaby, Sweden between July 27 and August 8. The theme for the Jamboree is Simply Scouting. 39, 000 scouts from all over the world are now on site ready for a life-time adventure and my son is one of them.
I know, from the number of people we have spoken to during our fundraising for the trip that many people, young and old, have an interest in, and fond memories of Scouting. Many have friends all over the world because of camps they have been on.
You can get a taste of what the Jamboree attendees are going to be doing, and even have a go at it yourselves by using this proposal for a three day scout camp programme. While you are on the website have a look to see what the webcams are showing, apart from the sea of tents, and explore what the participants will be experiencing. Maybe someone you know will be inspired to go on the next Jamboree in four years time.
