Arrangements are underway to hold the eighth National Scout Jamboree at the International Stadium in Eraminiyaya, Anugunakolapelessa today under the patronage of President Rajapaksa.
It will come to an end on 30th of this month. Around 15,000 Scouts from all Districts and 500 girl guides will participate in the Jamboree. A training programme in horse riding, scout talent shows, and camp fires are among the many activities that have been planned. Scouts Commissioner C.
