Mpumalanga International Join-in-Jamboree 2007
This has become a bit of a preamble to a visit to Nelspruit for a 100 year Scouting jamboree.
The scouters from 9th Benoni heard about this jamboree and were quick to say they were wanting to go. The event is being held in Nelspruit and apparently over 600 scouters both locally and internationally will be attending.

Well, we have just returned from an amazing weekend where the kids once again had much fun. It must be said that towards the end, some of them were running on fumes as they were quite exhausted from all the daily games and activities.
Basically, we all arrived on Wednesday the 8th Aug at the sports grounds. The scouters set up camp in their designated area and formed part of the Mafikeng patrol. The girls patrol I can not remember but will get it from my daughter and put it in here. The kids did community service on the Thursday (Woman's Day) out at various venues. Some of the scouters raised money at shopping malls, others did cards for AIDS patents, some planted trees. On the Friday and Saturday there were other activities.

Sunday all too soon came and it was time to return home. Below are some of the photos from the event with captions where necessary.
On the Friday, the Cubs attended the event and there was games and activities for them as well as the scouts. Below are some images of that day with captions where suitable.
Last Day (Sunday) Closing ceremony.
Till next time keep well, travel safe and enjoy.
