Welcoming the newcomers to the 2011 World Scout Jamboree in Sweden, these Scouts from France shout "bon jour" and start a stadium-style wave in the check-in line.
Donning their traditional kilts, Scouts from Scotland are arriving. The World Scout Jamboree staff includes over 6,000 volunteers, representing from nearly every country on earth.
Upon arrival, Scouts receive a handy fold-out map, an ID card, and most importantly their Scout scarf (neckerchief). The color of the scarfs identifies each person's role at the jamboree.
