15th Nippon Jamboree 2010

Hi all,

Since the world is supposedly going to end in 2012, why not spend some money and attend a once-in-a-lifetime Jamboree in Japan? =D
Jokes aside, a Jamboree is a fantastic event and should be considered a ‘pilgrimage’ for every Scout to attend once in a lifetime. The cost might deter some of you, but do note that we’ll try our best to subsidize as much as possible through various school/scout fundings available, especially to deserving Scouts. Check out the details below:
