Scouts gather for annual Jamboree

From Summer Times, 9:30 am on 5 January 2024

More than 4000 scouts have ventured to Mystery Creek south of Hamilton for the organisation's annual Jamboree.

There's been a wide range of activities from drift bikes and cooking to celebrating the new year and learning to drive a digger.

Even an Australian contingent of scouts has arrived at the Mystery Creek site - now completely taken over by the tents of the scouts' camp. 

Laurence Fauatea is the Jamboree director.
