More than 1,300 boys and girls are learning to find their way through life and the great outdoors at the Pattaya Scouting Jamboree.
Deputy City Manager Sutham Petchket opened the March 13-15 camp for 1,340 boy and girl scouts at Vajiravudh Scout Camp in Sriracha.
Noppasit Na Nakorn of the Education Department laid out the objectives before the youths paid respect to a portrait of HM King Vajiralongkorn.
About 200 Pattaya Scout Commodores are on hand to lead lessons and activities that required both practical and mental practice.
Lessons during the camp include hiking, mapping, compass navigation, adventuring and pioneering. Fun, of course, also is on the agenda with a huge group campfire held Thursday night.
The goals of the fourth-annual event are to develop scouts in body, mind and soul, teaching them morals and responsibility and promoting unity and self-sacrifice. (PCPR)
