Time to say goodbye!

Time to say goodbye! 

Today was our last day at the jamboree. I woke up and my aim was to trade my daybag for an American one. So this meant I walked all over subcamp C4 and c3 and c2 and then finally c1. I stopped at the other Kent unit; the bohemian raspberries in c1 for a while then on the way back to camp I found an American troop and managed to get the swap and some badges and hat as well. At 1 o'clock my whole unit had to make their way back to camp so we can put down the unit kit and also our personal kit however this took a while. Afterwards we started to prepare and made our way down to the summit stadium for the closing ceremony. It started off with an American marching band and a speech from the Secretary General of the world scout organisation. There was also a reflection of our jamboree experience then the co hosts handed the jamboree over to the next hosts, Korea - as the 25th world scout jamboree is in South Korea in 2023. This lead to our entertainment for the night which started off with a performance from Pentatonix who are an a Capella group singing lots of covers and medleys. Afterwards there was a dance performance from Light Balance who were contestants on America's got talent and performed dances synchronised to lights on their costume. Finally we had a very long, impressive fireworks, lasers and fire display which lasted about 15 mins long. And the medway 5 even managed to get a photo together for the first time since we left for America over a week ago.
