9th Asia-Pacific Regional Air/Internet Jamboree
The Asia-Pacific Region of WOSM is pleased to announce the 9th Asia Pacific Regional Air-Internet Jamboree to be hosted by Bharat Scouts & Guides, India from 3 – 4 August 2013. The Air-Internet Jamboree is a regional event established in 2004 in which Scouts contact each other by means of amateur radio and through the Internet. Having a live conversation with a fellow Scout in some other place in the world gives the same excitement like having a normal Jamboree on the land. Just like the normal Jamboree, the Air-Internet Jamboree is also an event during which Scouting experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared. It’s a great and unique opportunity for Scouts of all age ranges to communicate with each other as if they are nearby when in actual fact they are all in their own countries. Indeed, Radio Scouting eliminates the distances and fosters a closer relationship of the worldwide Scouting movement. Programme Guidelines
