THE 1200 Scouts camping at the 13th National Scout Jamboree in Labasa will end their week-long gathering today.

The Fiji Scouts Association has thanked Government for its tremendous support in making their camp a memorable one. National executive Scouts commissioner Joji Qaranivalu said they had no problems with water and electricity supply over the past week.

“Police have also been around to provide security and the military officers have also helped our boys with their activities,” he said.

“It was a good week of camp and as we return to our own districts tomorrow (today), I believe these boys will go back home with new skills and knowledge.

“They have been trained to be survivors and they have also been taught how to build shoe racks and dish racks using bamboos or pieces of wood.”

Mr Qaranivalu said the activities done throughout the week would also help the Scouts become matured adults.

“This is the whole purpose of Scouts and we’re happy to see the boys enjoy themselves during camp and always eager to learn new things.”
