This summer saw three members of Essex Scouts embark on three very different journeys to the Moot on an adventure of ultimate discovery as they joined 120 Scouts and Guides from across the United Kingdom.

Between 26th July and 7th August 2010, the 13th World Scout Moot took place in Kenya, the first World Scout event for youth members to be held in the African Region.

Moots provide an opportunity for young adults, between 18 and 26 years old, in Scouting to meet together with the objective of improving their international understanding as citizens of the world.

The United Kingdom descended on Nairobi two days prior to the Moot to spend some time taking in some of the tourist attractions including an elephant orphanage, a giraffe sanctuary, and the famous Carnivore Restaurant. Following two days with running water and western toilets, the UK arrived at Rowallan Campsite, home of the Kenyan Scout Association and main site for the 13th World Scout Moot.

We take a look at the Moot as experienced by Fran, Irene and Sam who, each with a different role at the event, share their experiences of the summer.
