2007:100 years of Scouting

The world came together in Celebration of 100 years of Scouting, and it was all topped off with the World Scout Jamboree at Hylands Park in Essex.

Over 40,000 young people from 158 countries enjoyed two weeks of camping in the English countryside. They did what Scouts do best sharing fun, friendship and adventure.

The event was sound-tracked by the song Jambo performed by Scout pop group The Adventure, featuring the future X-Factor 2009 finalist Lucie Jones. And through the World Friendship Appeal UK Scouts raised over £400,000 for worthy causes around the world.
