Day 1 in the Interamerican Scout Forum, Panama
Hello friends, today I'm going to tell you what is happening in the 6th Interamerican Youth Scout.
First of all, the organizing team has everything well-planned. From the delivery of the kits to the schedule of the sessions... excellent!
With the welcoming word by Gus Sanchez, Youth Advisor to the Interamerican Scout Committee, and then remembered something very important: the rules of procedure for this Youth Forum.
Once the agenda was approved, we sang the happy birthday to Julius Kramer, who is visiting us from Sweden and is Youth Advisor for the World Scout Committee.
Time to get in to the point and for this purpose working groups combining all the youth within the region. It was noted the leadership of the girls and in general this group demonstrates gender balance and cultural diversity.
To know each other better and break the ice. The participants´played a bingo game in which they had to find people that met each of the conditions of the board, the first team that filled all the spaces won. They task was to to collect signatures and to the Volunteers joined the game. I had to sign several for not using an airport to be able to reach this forum.
If this game was not enough to wake them up, encourage them and help them digest the delicious coffee break that they ate, dancing along Just Dance did. Shhaaaakkeee theeee hippsss.
I could see that most of the participants known each prior to this event, but even if that was not the case, the mood is of brotherhood, affection, joy and enthusiasm was contagious. With that encouragement and the desire to learn experiences, knowledge and a lot of positive things to every one of your countries know that we will be able to improve our organization. Keep it up guys!!!!
