After 10 days of fun and adventure, the first ever Scout Moot in Africa is coming to a close. As described by many participants, it will go down in history as an event full of adventure, fun, making new friends, learning new skills, experiencing the warmth and hospitality of Africa, unique landscapes, and beautiful flora and fauna: Truly, an ultimate discovery.
Rovers departed for expedition centres outside Nairobi. They had a rich experience interacting with local communities. They learned new skills. They did good turns in schools and for the environment. After an exciting four days, it was time to re-unite at Rowallan camp for another six days of fun, learning and friendship
Excitement galore engulfed the opening ceremony. Participants drowned in a celebratory mood as they witnessed the kicking off of the first ever World Scout Moot in Africa. Then it was time to depart for the various expedition centres for a four day adventure of ultimate discovery.
Excitement is mounting in Kenya where hundreds of international service volunteers,together with key personnel from the World Scout Bureau and scores of adult leaders from the Kenya Scouts Association are mobilizing themselves and preparing various expedition centres for the arrival of 1,500 rover scouts from all over the world who will take part in the 13th World Scout Moot, the first event of its kind on the african continent.
Welcome to yet another edition of the 13th World Scout Moot Bulletin. As 2010 dawns on us, it is also my privilege to welcome you all to the year of the World Scout Moot, the first ever to take place on African soil. This year, close to 3000 young adults from all over the world will converge in Kenya to partake in what we fondly call a Moot in Scouting parlance.
By joining, you will be able to make friends from all over the world and enjoy a bewildering array of fun-filled and yet educative activities. What‘s more, as you participate in this momentous event, you will be awed by the beauty of Kenya, the land where the Founder of Scouting, Lord Baden-Powell, chose to spend his last days.
The countdown to the Ultimate Discovery is in its final phase. Karibuni Kenya! It’s time!
