Never pass up an opportunity to go to a Jamboree, regardless of when and where it is. I have made some life long friendships at Jamborees in the UK and in Sweden. You only get one chance to attend a World Jamboree as a participant, but after that you can go to as many as you like as IST!
After going down with 13 Leaders & venture scouts in 2000, I have since been back every 4 years to Essex Jamboree to work on Site Services or Facilities as we were called this time. I call this group of people my second family as they don't care who you are or where you are from as long as you are prepared to work & play hard. Some of my best friendships have been formed from this team of people & the journey home is a reluctant one. Can't wait for four years to pass till I start packing my gear & setting off again. -Lee Allan
