The Jamboree

Bangkok The Jamboree Taiwan Malaysia


A Jamboree is described in the dictionary as a large and lively gathering of Scouts and Guides. But for the Woking Contingent (and all the others attending) it was a great deal more.

Leaving England on 21 December 2002, they travelled to Thailand to begin a three part journey of a lifetime.


Between 22 December and 27 December they joined the rest of the UK Contingent in learning about the capitol of Thailand, Bangkok.

On 27 December they arrived at the Jamboree site where they took part in the 20th World Scout Jamboree.
