Hong Kong Scout Centenary Jamboree

Year 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of Hong Kong Scouting. To celebrate this important milestone together with the other Scout members, our school Scout troop, 1701st New Territories Group, joined the Hong Kong Scout Centenary Jamboree held from 27th December 2010 to 1st January 2011 at Penny’s Bay, Lantau Island.

Our Scouts spent 6 days and 5 nights together with some other 5000 local and overseas Scout members. During the camp, our Scouts set up their own tents, applied their pioneering skills to construct camp furniture and cooked their own food. They also participated in various activities organized by the Scout Association of Hong Kong such as Park Orienteering at Inspiration Lake, visit to the Big Buddha, campfire, count down party etc.

Besides, our members also grabbed the chance to share their scouting experiences with the Scouts from other countries such as Brunei Darussalam, India, Indonesia, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, the United States. They also exchanged badges, woggles, scarves and even their uniform.

Baden Powell, the founder of Scout Movement, aimed to hold Jamboree to foster a worldwide brotherhood, and to help the young boys in the movement lean about other people and nations by interacting with them Undoubtedly, our scouts lived up to his expectation.

香港童軍百周年紀念大露營

本校童軍單位——新界第一七零一旅童軍團之領袖及成員於2010年12月27日至2011年1月1日於大嶼山竹篙灣參加「香港童軍百周年紀念大露營」,與五千多位來自本港及海外的童軍一同迎接香港童軍一百周年的大日子,這亦是他們第一次參與童軍大露營。

童軍們需自行架搭的營帳度過六日五夜、利用竹枝紮成衣鞋架和工作桌等,並需自行烹調晚膳,學以致用。另外,童軍們於營期內參與多元化的活動,例如:「禪之體驗」、「昂平360之旅」、「迪士尼公園樹木導賞」、「營火晚會」、「營地活動村」、「2011年倒數晚會」等。

此外,童軍成員亦把握機會與來自美國、馬來西亞、沙地亞拉伯、汶萊等地的童軍成員交流,並交換各式布章、巾圈、紀念品、收獲甚豐。適逢本團童軍李芷瑩於大露營期間生日,童軍們更特意為她安排神秘生日派對,令是次大露營更添特色。

童軍創辦人——貝登堡勳爵(BPO,1932)曾言:「一個孩子的童軍生涯相當短暫,所以童軍在每一個階段最好能參加一次大露營。大露營使孩子們體會童軍『四海之內皆兄弟』的精神,同時有機會認識從其他各地區及國家來的童軍伙伴。」這個目標,我們達到了。
