Four Solomon Island Scouts have left the country yesterday to join other scouts throughout the world to participate in the 23rd World Jamboree in Japan.
Team leader of the Solomon Islands Scouts Gerea Lepping said they have two roles at the Jamboree in Japan.
“The Solomon Islands Scouts, we will play two roles in the event. On is that our two leaders who have left are going as an international service team where they will be looking after activities during the Jamboree. This means they will be looking after activities for children around the world who will be at the event. The other group is going as participants. I am going as a team leader and looking at the Solomon Islands group and the children are attending as participants.”
A total of six Solomon Islands scouts will represent the country at the event – two scout leaders left the country last Tuesday.
