Camp in Camp

Several of the Canadian groups enjoyed 'Camp in Camp' yesterday. This unique experience brings the units from the World Jamboree to local Scout camps as guests of Scandinavian Scout groups. For 24 hours you have a smaller camp experience and get to know the local culture and people better.

Southern Skies Patrol was the guest of a Norwegian group and enjoyed the lakeside location. It was nice to get away from the bustle of the jamoboree and sit by a campfire sharing scouting experiences. The sunny weather was also enjoyable allowing us to sleep under the stars.
