BULLETIN #1

Introduction We are honored to welcome you to the 15th edition of the Caribbean Scout Jamboree in Curacao. As a dynamic and modern scout organization we are proud to host this great event. The Caribbean Scout Jamboree is an International camp organized for scouts living in the Caribbean and surrounding. During 8 days, approximately 800 participants from different cultures will experience the camp of their lives at Scouting Antiano National Campsite at Ronde Klip, a beautiful area lying near the northern coast of the beautiful island Curacao. The Caribbean Scout Jamboree welcomes groups of Scouts and guides aged 12 till 18 and their leaders. Staff must be at least 18 years old.

LIFE TRACKING TREASURES

Jamboree theme: The theme of the 15th Caribbean Scout Jamboree is “Life: Tracking Treasures”. Life itself is a treasure. The path of life is a discovery of treasures. The Lord our Divine Father has given us everything to make our life joyful, but it is our own task to develop ourselves to achieve our own happiness. Our purpose in life is not to become successful but our first priority is to honor the success that is already in our hands which is: ourselves. With other words life is not about getting more but to become more! Lord our Father has given us a lot of treasures to become the person we are meant to be. OUR MIND & BODY
