Essex International Jamboree
All 28 of us met at a youth hostel in Edinburgh at 9pm on the Friday night, we had to take all our tents and cooking equipment down on the coach with us! We arrived at the campsite at 5am on the Saturday morning, we were the first group to arrive on site.
Once setting up our camp we got to have a look around the site then we had the opening ceremony which was really good!
Each day we had 2 activity zones, one in the morning and one in the afternoon my favourite zones were Wet + Wild and Its A Knockout. After tea we were allowed to go out to the “village” the village had lots of different things such as a cinema, beach, soft rock cafe, video room and dance tent! During the week we had three fancy dress nights they were superheroes, neon/UV and dress to impress for dress to impress we all wore kilts, on that night me and another girl highland danced on the main stage!
Another highlight was swapping lots of badges with people from all over the world. Overall I really enjoyed my jamboree experience!
