Jamboree ”The Novgorod republic”
Set your tent at the place, where the history of Russia began!
Next summer there is going to be the Sixth Jamboree of Russian scouts ”The Novgorod republic”. The gathering of all scout tribes will take place on the land of Novgorod region, 20 kilometers from Veliki Novgorod, on an opening near the place where two rivers Veryazhka and Lyuboyezha merge.
From the Jamboree camp site opens a marvelous view over Mikhailo-Klopski monastery (by the way, the Monastery inhabitants will be glad to meet scouts and to receive their help). Also every participant of Jamboree will be able to see the legendary Ilmen Lake; the routes of Jamboree hikes will reach its shores.
About 2000 scouts from all over Russia are supposed to come to the Jamboree camp. And of course we will be happy to see foreign guests at this great event!
