Rhu Scouts take part in International Jamboree
19/10/2021 By James Harrison


1st Rhu Scouts spent the weekend taking part in the first Scout Jamboree to occur since COVID restrictions were eased.  Rhu Scouts took part in the Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI), camping at their Scout Hut in Rhu whilst using the internet to meet Scouts from across the world and take part in activities with a variety of international friends.  Scouts made contact with over 60 different Scout Groups from across 46 different countries from New Zealand to Canada, South Africa to Sweden.  We visited Lisbon Zoo in Portugal, joined in with Scouts in Brazil to make beeswax wraps and conducted bubble making experiments with Scouts in Indonesia. 


Scouts are now back and meeting again, and plans are underway for future international events to Nepal and a World Jamboree in South Korea in 2023.  Further information about Rhu Scouts can be found at our website .
