What do the participants of Tereshkova think of the jamboree

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

I met with 4 groups camping on the Tereshkova Mission subcamp. They had the following to say about the Jamboree:
The Wiltshire North Guides reported
“We’ve really enjoyed the Jamboree, the Girl Guides really enjoyed the ‘It’s a Knock out Zone and Technology in Motion’. We love the Tereshkova Hubble the fact that the whole subcamp is space themed and decorated so well. The activities run in the Hubble have been good especially the Lego Star Wars kits to build and Area 51 is quite realistic. We are looking forward to the closing ceremony tonight”
Columbus Bellah Scout Group had the following to say
“We have overall enjoyed the Jamboree; the participants have really enjoyed it they liked the ‘It’s a Knock out’ Zone. We really like the subcamp theme and are really enjoying the ‘Moon Rock’ challenge we have lost and won this a few times. We also love the Bob awards and the Lego Start wars kits in the Hubble. Things that had been a problem 4 years ago have been ironed out and resolved”
The Isle of Man Scouts said
“This has been a fantastic first experience of Essex International Jamboree. There are so many activities on offer and our Scouts have liked them all equally. The Jamboree is well organised”
The Egyptian Scout Group reported
“We’ve had a fantastic time; it is our first Jamboree and we have enjoyed it all and have tried out many new activities. The youngest camper has learnt to walk whilst at The Jamboree”
All four groups will be recommending Essex International Jamboree as somewhere to camp in the future, when they return to their District and Country.
