Participant Blog Day 9 – James R

Today was the final day of the jamboree. The day started with a group of 8 going on an elephant safari very early in the morning to have the best chance of seeing wildlife: we ended up seeing 4 rhinos, deer and many different types of bird. For the rest of the group the day started with Nepalese PT and flag break. Bases then began with my group running the lazy river (floating downstream in tires) which the Nepalese scouts really enjoyed, especially the younger ones.

Bases continued into the afternoon when the closing ceremony began. The Nepalese and English scouts exchanged camp songs before there was a presentation of certificates and thanks to all those who helped. The camp flag was lowered and presented to Hari for safe keeping. Most scouts have now left for their homestay leaving those who have already gone around the campfire. Before people left there were many goodbyes to all the friends that have been made on camp.
