Phnom Penh, July 31, 2023 --

A contingent of Cambodia Scouts left here last night for the 25th World Scout Jamboree in the Republic of Korea to be held from Aug. 1 to 12, 2023.

It is the sixth time that Cambodia Scouts attends such international event, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MoEYS) pointed out.

Earlier on the same day, the source added, the contingent of Cambodia Scouts led by its Vice President H.E. Ms. Kim Sethany paid a courtesy call on H.E. Dr. Hang Chuon Naron, Minister of MoEYS and President of Cambodia Scouts.

On the occasion, H.E. Dr. Hang Chuon Naron advised the youth scout delegates to maintain and enhance the national value and dignity as a whole and the honour of Cambodian youth scouts in particular by participating in all activities in the camp, learn new skills and become a goodwill ambassador in promoting the Cambodian culture to the international arena through good communication in a spirit of friendship and peace with camp members from other countries.

Cambodia dispatched 47 young scouts to join the 25th World Scout Jamboree, while senior delegates will participate in the event as guests of honour in the opening ceremony, to coordinate, examine and evaluate the participation and organisation of the programme.

According to an online source, organised by the World Organisation of the Scout Movement, the World Scout Jamboree is the world's largest youth camp held every four years. Tens of thousands of young people and leaders from 150 countries share culture, experience, and friendship and put a concrete global citizenship into practice.
