Scouting Through History

The Second World Jamboree.

Ermelunden, Copenhagen, Denmark, 1924. The second Jamboree. Innovations: a week`s home hospitality for Scouts after the event; The World Scout Championship. Problems: a surfeit of public and a deluge! B-P becomes "baden Master", Danish for " bathing master". Awards for different contests distribuited by B-P at the Copenhagen Stadium. 4,949 drenched Scouts accommodated by public for a night. This Jamboree showed that Scouting was not just a boy`s game, but a serious contribution to education in world Citizenship.
