Fiji Scouts attend AJ2016
Scouts SA and Fiji Scouts partnership
As part of our ongoing support of Fiji, Scouts SA are proud to assist 13 Scouts and 4 Leaders to attend AJ2016. These Scouts have a rare opportunity to travel overseas, and make new international friends by living in a Jamboree Troop with their Scouting brothers and sisters from Australia. Spread across four South Australian Troops, the Fijians bring enthusiasm and excitement and love to swap stories with the Aussies in their Patrols. Scouting in Fiji is quite different to Australia, so most Scouts don’t get the chance to attend an event like our Jamborees in Australia.
There are also many cultural differences and the Scouts have the chance to experience what life is like for Australian children as well as share their own customs with us. You can find out more about Fiji by visiting the International Centre in the Mall.
