About 90 people from all Nordic countries were gathered in Kristianstad this weekend, a meeting that is held every third year. The agenda included many different sessions, discussions and presentations, and the jamboree was the theme for Saturday afternoon. A few Nordic scouts are already involved in the Planning Team for the jamboree and during this session the meeting participants got more information both about the jamboree in general and about how to get involved in the planning in different ways. One way is of course to join the planning team, but scout groups from the Nordic Countries will also play an important role in hosting Camp in camps in the south part of Sweden and arrange Home Hospitality for the jamboree participants.
Of course the afternoon also included a visit to the jamboree site. The sun was shining, and the ground was dry even since it was heavy rain the day before. We love the sandy ground!
The day ended with a fantastic dinner hosted by the Kristianstad municipality at a local restaurang. As well Kristianstad as all Nordic countries give us a fantastic support and show there will to be involved and to work for big contingents and many visitors. We are so happy for this commitment!
So another great weekend in Kristianstad is over, but I will be back in two weeks at the extended council meeting were all department teams ans section heads are invited and we hop to be over 100 people!
