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.
