Stuff Scouts Said
I was elected Patrol Leader at AJ2016 and made many new friends, most of which I am still in contact with today. Jamboree was an experience I would refer to as an "experience of a lifetime", one of which I still talk highly of today and encourage other younger Scouts to attend if provided the opportunity.
Our Leader, Kookaburra, was never shy to lend a helping hand. He spent hours on end digging trenches in the pouring rain to prevent flooding of our tents and personal belongings. He always put others before himself and was willing to help out anyone in any way possible.
Snake was our first aid officer who was always willing to help someone in need. If Dingo was preoccupied, Snake was always there to lend a helping hand or just to have a nice chat and a laugh. Her bubbly and enthusiastic personality is infectious and brings a smile to everyone around her.
Dingo was our Jamboree mum. Her kind and supporting attitude was invaluable. She was open to all scouts to talk about their problems and gave wise advice. To step up and take the role of Troop Leader at the last minute was an incredibly difficult task and we are forever grateful for everything she has done for each scout and fellow leader. No words can describe our thanks.
