SCOUTS from around the world are currently enjoying the World Jamboree in Sweden.

Calvin Bishop (14) is part of the Cambridgeshire group who have made the long trip to Scandinavia for the annual celebration.

He is one of 38,000 Scouts from over 200 countries who arrived in Kristianstad, Sweden to experience a trip of a lifetime.

He said: “I can’t wait to try all the activities they have got planned. I’m most looking forward to taking part in the obstacle courses and physical activities, like caving.

“I’ve never done caving before, but I am going to give it a go, because if not at a Jamboree, then when?”

The World Scout Jamboree will be the first time the UK’s Chief Scout Bear Grylls will have attended such a large gathering of Scouts from across the world.

He said: “While lots of people know that Scouting is all about adventure, they often don’t realise that adult volunteers get to do just as much as our young members through their involvement.

“The World Scout Jamboree is a great example of this. Nearly 5,000 Scouts from across the UK are meeting 33,000 others from around the world and taking part in amazing adventures. That is why I love Scouting so much!”
