An Open Letter to Parents and Caregivers of Scouts Returning from Jamboree

Your Scout is returning home today very different from when they left you to come to 22nd New Zealand SCOUT Jamboree.

Your child will not be different physically. They will be different mentally and emotionally.

They have been away from home for at least 11 days. They have coped with the sun, wind and dust at Mystery Creek. They have also lived with a new group of people, worked in a small team and met the challenges of maintaining a healthy camp.

The last 11 days have stretched and tested your Scout in ways that you can never imagine.
Your Scout is being returned to you more confident, more independent and more capable.

As adults supporting your Scout from leaders with the Jamboree Troops to the Jamboree organisation, we would like you to support your Scout:
➢ to sleep for a very long time after Jamboree.
➢ to talk to you a lot about their Jamboree experience.
➢ maintain and grow their increased confidence – they may be the same height, but they will be several feet taller!

Thanks to each parent/caregiver for all of the fundraising and support for your Scouts getting to Jamboree.

We hope that you’ll continue to support your Scouts after Jamboree and their ongoing development in Scouting now that they’ve had a life-changing Jamboree experience!

Guy Beatson,
Jamboree Director
