Scout Federation recommends suspension of the Jamboree… 9 o’clock delegation meeting decision

The US scout delegation participating스포츠토토 in the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree will withdraw early from the campsite following the UK. Following the UK, which had the largest number of participants, the United States decided to withdraw, putting the Jamboree in danger of being suspended.

Lou Paulsen , chairman of the Boy Scouts of America, told Yonhap News on the 5th, “We are leaving because of the weather. ” When asked, ‘Is it correct to stay at Camp Humphreys until the 11th?’, he replied, “Yes. We decided to leave the Jamboree as much as possible and stay there until we return home.” “We sent an e-mail to the parents of the youth members and volunteers to inform them of this situation,” said Paulson. He said, “It is true that the members are regretful about ending the Jamboree activity, including the K-pop concert scheduled for the 6th,” but “The key (of the problem) is the weather, and considering what we have experienced so far, the expected weather, and the capacity of the campground, It was a decision I made to properly take care of the teenagers when I did it.” At the delegation meeting held today (5th) at 9 o’clock, it is expected that one of three options will be decided: enforcement, suspension, or reduction and early closing. The previous day, Britain, which sent the largest number of 4,500 teenagers, notified the event to withdraw.

Considering that there were 39,304 participants as of 0:00 the previous day, about 15% of the total decided to leave.

The World Scout Federation issued a statement after the UK’s decision to withdraw, saying, “We requested the Korea Scout Federation to end the event earlier than planned and consider alternatives to support the participants until they return to their home countries.”

“The organizers have decided to continue the event with the assurance that they will do everything in their power to address the problems caused by the heat wave by committing significant additional resources,” it said.
