1924 2nd WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE

 


(1924 World Jambo Items)

 

The 2nd World jamboree was held in Ermelunden near Copenhagen, Denmark in 1924. The jamboree lasted for seven days. Scouts from 22 nations assembled for a week under canvas. This was the first time such a huge camp had been planned. A special Rally was held which was honored by the presence of their Majesties, the King and Queen of Denmark. The Jamboree proved a great success and once again Scouting had shown the world something new.
 
Innovations of this Jamboree included a week's home hospitality for Scouts after the event and the World Scout Championship. One ofthe greatest challenges of this Jamboree was so many visitors and also a deluge! B-P was named "Bademester" (Danish for "bathing master"). 4,549 wet Scouts were accommodated by the public for a night. Awards for different contests were distributed by B-P at Copenhagen Stadium. This Jamboree showed that Scouting was not just a game, but also that it made a significant contribution towards education in world citizenship.
