C-JAM : New Zealand Scouts Jamboree

The New Zealand Scouts have been holding their three yearly jamboree at the Canterbury Showground. 4,500 scouts from New Zealand and further a field have descended upon Christchurch and are having a great time. The activities have been very varied and have included caving, walking, climbing, sailing, canoeing and team games.

Bishopdale and Harewood Scouts are representing the Waimakariri which is part of the Torlesse zone.

The jamboree has a real international flavour with scouts from Australia, Hong Kong, Korea and the UK.

Bishopdale & Harewood scouts have been playing host to a number of girls from the Midlands in the UK. They have been having a great time and have taken in many of the sights of the south island during their stay. Will they want to go home? It is very doubtful!
