DESPITE the costly expenses involved, Scouts from Seaqaqa in Vanua Levu were adamant to be a part of the 12th Fiji National Scout Jamboree at the Queen Victoria School in Tailevu.

And its efforts were inspired by their belief that everything is possible in life, only if people had the right mind-set.

Seaqaqa district contingent leader Ajnesh Narayan said they spent about $12,000 to attend the gathering of Fiji and Pacific scouting students and members.

The 38 scouts from Seaqaqa are accompanied by 11 leaders, and a cook.

"We are here to attend the camp and the 100th year celebration and this is something we don't want to miss out on," Mr Narayan said.

He said they considered themselves lucky and blessed to be a part of the Scout jamboree and the centennial celebration.

Fiji National Scout Association executive commissioner Joji Qaranivalu said a lot of activities were planned, including water safety activities and drug awareness among others.

A total of 1210 scouts from around the country are part of this jamboree.

The week-long jamboree ends tomorrow.
