The Brunei Darussalam Scouts Association (PPNBD) conducted an integrated intensive training camp for the Sultanate’s contingent representing the country in the 25th World Scout Jamboree in Saemangeum, South Korea in August.
The camp from February 16 to 18 saw 18 participants comprising junior scouts and three rover scouts.
The camp aimed to provide exposure, identify roles, tasks and responsibilities as participants, show required skills in showing their role as participants and apply cooperation and friendship.
The programme content included learning a scout’s basic skills on knot, gadget making, an introduction to 25th World Scout Jamboree, a cultural night and a certificate presentation on the final night which saw the attendance of PPNBD Chief Commissioner Haji Awang Badar bin Haji Awang Ali.
The World Scout Jamboree is organised by the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and serves as the largest youth camp in the world. The 25th edition will be hosted by the Korea Scout Association.
The jamboree is held every four years and sees over 50,000 participants aged 12 to 17 and scout leaders, travelling from 170 countries sharing their cultures and scouting experience.
