1933 4th WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE

 


(1933 World Jambo Items)

 

The 4th World Scout Jamboree was hosted by Hungary, and was held in 1933. 25,792 Scouts participated in the event, representing 46 different nations. They encamped in the Royal Forest of Gödöllő, about 11 miles from the capital of Budapest.
 
The camp chief was Teleki Pál, the member of the International Committee who later became Prime Minister of Hungary. This event is notable as the first international gathering where Air Scouts were represented, i.e. by László Almásy and Robert Kronfeld. A meeting of Skolta Esperanto Ligo took place also at the Jamboree. The white stag on the official badge was the national symbol of Hungary, and inspired Baden-Powell to make the following speech:
 
"You may look on that white stag as the pure spirit of Scouting, springing forward and upward, ever leading you onward and upward, to leap over difficulties, to face new adventures."
 
The Jamboree daily paper was printed in Hungarian, English, French and German, with contributions in other languages. The unofficial language was "Jamboreese", which consisted mostly of signs emphasized by a happy smile. Each foreign contingent was provided with a "cousin", a local Scout who could help them with the Hungarian language. The first issue of commemorative Scout stamps were made during is jamboree.
 
At the same place from 25 July to 7 August 1939, the first World Camp was held after the formation of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the fourth World Jamboree, the Hungarian Scout association, Magyar Cserkészszövetség, hosted a fourth World Jamboree Memorial Camp at Bélapátfalva, Hungary in 1993.
