All around the world!

All around the world! 

Today was culture day and we set up our camp site ready for visitors. We were doing armpit fudge, pin the tail on the donkey, hook a duck, ring toss, volleyball, badminton, English tea and wonky donkeys cut out paces pictures. We too turns in travelling across site to explore other cultures. We went all around our subcamp eating some poffertjes (Dutch mini pancakes) , guarana juice form brazil and some iced tea from some other uk scouts. Later in the evening I attended a duke of Edinburgh international award ceremony where people could be presented or represented their dofe award. There was about 100 scouts getting their awards presented which was a huge improvement from the last jamboree. As a thank you we received a dofe international award jamboree badge, sticker and a dofe jamboree certificate. In fact over 150 nations currently run the dofe award scheme which originated in the uk. In the evening there was the unity show which kicked off with some culture displays form Mexico with a mariachi band and dancers and talks from a tribal american and religious scouts worldwide talking about their beliefs alongside a UN representative. Then the show spiced up with performances from some previous broadway actors who sang Disney songs which everyone loved including lion king and frozen.
