Today I woke up at 6.30 and went to this water reality program. It’s like a Wipe Out, the tv-series where the participants try to get over different kinds of obstacles. It was in the water which was super warm! It was so refreshing to get in to water on a hot day. Our team was called “Simply the best“, and we were all from different countries. We had so much fun and we all became friends!
When I came out of the water I went to meet my friends and we went to this zipline. It was the shorter one and it went over the campsite. You could see all the basecamps from there. People down there were watching us sliding over them and we watched the people doing different activities. I think it was the first time I saw the almost whole camp at the same time. I still can’t believe how huge this camp is!
After the zipline we ate some lunch and then I started the hike to the big zip’s starting point. The weather was super hot so the hike was quite hard. I walked with some people from UK and German. They were really nice and we also became friends. When we reached the top, we were all so sweaty and graving for water. After some hydration and instructions, we got the equipment and were ready to start.
The zipline was soooo long. I couldn’t even see the landing station from the starting place. When I got the final check done, I was full of excitement. When the countdown ended and we started sliding, I couldn’t even believe it. We were going forward very fast and I felt like a bird. After a while, the forest turned into a lake, which was full of people on kayaking. The zipline was really long and when I got back on my feet, I still couldn’t believe it. It had just been so exciting!!
In the evening, I had this dinner exchange with my norwegian friend Mari’s subcamp. Their whole troop was super nice to me and my friend Jenny who came there with me. They all had very good group spirit and it was so nice to be there. When we came there, they were all introducing themselves and during the dinner we talked about the Jamboree and all our new experiences. It was funny to hear their leader to tell them about next day, because I understood quite much about what he was saying. It’s because I speak swedish, which is very close to norwegian. And it was quite a coincidence that their leader had just been in Finland at a scoutcamp. He told us all about it and how he likes our country. In total, the visit was just so great!
