British scouts who had withdrawn from Saemangeum, North Jeolla Province to Seoul conveyed the atmosphere, saying, “It is a safe situation,” and “Koreans are kind and offer donations and discounts.” According to the BBC

on the 8th (local time) , Shannon Swaffer, who sent her 15-year-old daughter to the Jamboree, said she had moved to Seoul and was staying in a large hotel that was “very safe.” He continued, “Her daughter is being cared for by scouts and leaders토토사이트. I am happy to have a positive result in a situation where it seemed that disaster followed disaster.” He also reported that the Swappers were receiving a warm welcome after the British crew arrived in Seoul. “My daughter says Koreans are incredibly kind,” he said. “People she doesn’t know come up to apologize and say thank you for coming.” He added, “Some stores give discounts to scouts, and some bakeries donate cakes when they arrive at the hotel.” Paul Ford, who sent his 18-year-old daughter as a volunteer, also said that her daughter was moved to a hotel in Incheon and that the facilities were “excellent.” “The members are happy to be able to leave the place where the disaster struck,” he said. “But it is regrettable that they missed the opportunity to meet new people.” At the same time, he also pointed out that “(the scouting organization) should be closely reviewed so that this does not happen again.”

Amy Hobson, who sent her 20-year-old son to volunteer, said, “Everyone is working hard to keep the crew active and the main goal is to have a positive experience despite setbacks.”

The UK sent 4,500 people, the largest number of participants among participating countries. When problems such as insufficient facilities and heat waves arose, the first decision was made to withdraw on the 4th. British crew members have been staying in dormitories and hotels in Seoul since the 5th.

British scouts spent about 3,500 pounds (about 5.88 million won) per person for this competition, according to the British Scout Federation. However, a large portion of the fundraising activities are covered.

As Typhoon Kanun moved north to the Korean Peninsula, all the Jamboree participants started emergency evacuation from the campsite at 10:00 am on the 8th.
