2000 Blair Atholl Patrol Jamborette
The Closing... and it's over...
|After the Atholantics, the Scouts began to take
down their subcamps in preparation for departure on Friday, July 31st.
After the evening meal the camp filed up the Campfire Slope for our final
campfire of the Jamborette. Fittingly, as the campfire proceeded, a huge
thunderhead loomed in the distance, but the weather over Target Field
remained dry and beautiful.
The campfire started enthusiastically, as the
subcamps gave their cheers for the last time and various staff
members led the group in song.
|As the sun set and the camp grew darker, the mood
became more restrained, as everyone realized that this was the last
time we'd all be together at this Jamborette.
Camp Chief John Kennedy called each contingent leader up and
distributed packages of heather for each Scout and leader as a
memento of the camp.
Then, the Chief and the Subcamp Uncles lit torches at the dying
||... and used the torches to light candles held by each
of the participants, until the Campfire Slope was covered in
Finally, as we sang the Blair Atholl Song,
the candles were blown out from right to left across the
slope to end the campfire, and the Scouts filed away in the
darkness... and the 2000 Blair Atholl Jamborette was over.
