Party in the USA!

23rd July 2019



Party in the USA!

I woke up and went to the booths by the summit stadium and went into the South Korea jamboree tent where I was introduced to the concept and its theme. I also made a uv sensitive bead paracord bracelet with the Americans. Then in the afternoon our whole unit glittered up with it in our hair and face. Some even wore face paints. I chose to wear flags in my hair and a uk flag cap like many others. We chanted our way to the stadium with 45,000 other scouts excited for our night to come. It started off with an introduction from our host countries and the royal mounted Canadian police and some highlanders from Canada and to start off a rendition of the lion king song. We had an abseil entrance from Bear Grylls who gave a motivational speech and a performance from the band recycled percussion. Every countries or association who attended were represented by a flag bearer which emphasised the size of the camp as it went on for a long time as each individual countries was announced. To finish the show off there was an amazing programmed drone display which displayed the jamboree logos it was a great night that had a fantastic atmosphere and showed off the true size of the jamboree and the jamboree spirit for adventure.
