Welland Valley Scouts have just returned from the  Dinosaur themed Jurassic Jamboree in Dorset. The scouts camped for a week at Kingston Maurward College with 1200 other International Scouts, from as far afield as Germany, Sweden, Norway, Spain and Georgia.

During the week the scouts participated in water sports, such as kayaking and rafting, plus land based activities such as a climbing tower and zip-lining.

Highlights of the Jamboree including a visit to Brownsea Island, the site of the original scout camp, where two Welland Scouts were invested. We also visited Dorchester, Weymouth and Chesil Beach in a fantastic week. Jess 13, a scout in Hawk Patrol said ‘The foam party was amazing, we were coated in it’.
