Scouting in Uganda
Sat, 17 Oct 1998 23:55:03 +0200
I was recently in the USA visiting Russian friends in Washington and
Ugandan friends in Chicago. Whilst in Chicago I was very grateful to
the Northwest Suburban Council and particularly Dan Lewis for taking the
time and trouble to show us the Council's headquarters and camp site.
In the evening we visited a Troop and were made to feel really welcome.
It was interesting to learn about the way you organise for your and with
your young people.
Dan and I discussed at length support for Scouting in Uganda and the
possibility of a BSA visit to Uganda in the year 2000 for their national
Camporee. We have a joint U2 project with the Uganda Scouts Association
and we would be very pleased to share details of this with any BSA
Leaders or Scouts who are interested.
