Every day at 9am we raise all the international flags encircling the village green, but for the turn of Marconi’s Mast on Monday there was a extra special surprise! 5 new members from 2 groups were invested by camp chief Karen Packer. Ben, Ryan and Max, all 10 and from 1st Wilmington scouts said “it was really weird to be invested by the chief” and that “it was a really good experience for my first Essex Jamboree”. They are looking forward to all the adventurous activities they can do in scouts, like visiting a secret nuclear bunker. Over 30 other subcampers helped with flag break yesterday; Have you checked when your subcamp is helping?
