2007 = 100 Years
A just once in a lifetime chance for everyone to join in the celebrations that surround 100 years of scouting.
What better place to celebrate it than in the very county the first ever camp for young boys took place...on Brownsea Island.
See images below from the Sunrise Ceremony at Goose and a couple of 'snaps' from the 21st Scout Jamboree in Hylands Park, Chelmsford.

So what was at the very front, enabling all of them to link with scouts from throughout the world? A portable stage and giant video screen receiving images broadcast live from the Centenary Camp on Brownsea Island.
The JAMBO stage @ the Jamboree.
An impressive stage, with some lively and entertaining performances every lunchtime for 'day visitors' and the hub of all evening entertainment. To give some idea of scale, the main stage area covered an area roughly equating to a standard size football pitch!
JAMBO 13:00hrs 'Day Visitors Show'
In addition to the huge contingent s from all around the world, there were an average of some 10,000 visitors booked on and off the Jambo site EVERY day of the Jamboree. Even the incredible facts quoted with regard to just about everything needed for life to continue can't get the hugeness of the whole operation over. Well Done everyone as Scouts we should be very proud of the achievement.
