The Jamboree - 28 December to 7 January

The 20th World Scout Jamboree was held in Sattahip, Chonburi Province, Thailand, about 180kms south east of Bangkok, located on a beautiful beach on the Gulf of Thailand.
 

The Jamboree site covered 1,200 hectares of land and consisted of flat plains, foothills and a white sandy beach, sloping down towards a crystal blue sea. 

It lasted for 10 days, over the New Year period, during which time 30,000 young people from around 160 different countries all over the world  lived and learnt together. They acted as representatives of the 28 million Scouts worldwide.

 

The theme of this World Jamboree was “Share our worlds, share our cultures”. Through this unique event young people took part in an abundance of activities with an emphasis on learning through experience, particularly in the areas of physical skills, scientific exploration, information technology, environmental education and community development. 

This learning took place in eight activity modules with the following exciting titles:

They also learnt much about other cultures and spent time working in the community on service projects.

A World Jamboree is held every 4 years and in 2007, to celebrate Scouting’s centenary, the 21st World Scout Jamboree will be held in England, the home of Scouting. 40,000 participants are going to make it one of the biggest Jamborees ever.
