    • Hope they have a good time! My boys were gone for 12 days, so I was very happy to have them back!

    • It’s a big collection of neckers from the Scout camp my boys went on. They come home this week after 12 days.

    • Thanks very much! It’s my younger son’s collection of neckers from his Scout camp. I was so happy to have him and his brother home.

    • They’re all neckers for the different sub-camps on their camp. My son decided to buy the full set as a souvenir at the end. He was wearing them all when he got home, love him!

    • Scouts is brilliant and they had an amazing time, thanks. Glad to hear yours are having fun in the UK.

    • They’re for all the different sub-camps. My boys were in the red camp, but my younger son decided to buy a full set when he set off for home as a souvenir. He was wearing them all when he got home! πŸ™‚

    • It most definitely is Scout camp! I just loved all the colours.

  3. I bet you are thrilled that they are home! Did they sleep for days? πŸ˜€

    • I certainly am! Remarkably they were up pretty early the day after they got back – they’d got used to getting up at 7.30 Dutch time.

  4. My two had their first overnight camp – one night – with the Beavers Scouts this summer. Will be so wonderful for them when they start doing longer stays like your boys. Had no idea they were given ‘neckers’ for them πŸ™‚

    • I bet they loved that! My younger son did his first one-nighter with Beavers when he was 7. Four years later he did 12 nights in Holland with Scouts! The really big international camps usually have their own camp necker. Kids like to collect them (as you can tell from this pic!).

  6. A jamborette? Wow is that what they’re called these days and not a jamboree?? I take it there was a big pile of washing for you to do on their return? #MySundayPhoto

    Post a Reply
    • I think a jamboree and a jamborette are the same. I just tried looking it up and couldn’t find any difference! There was a huge pile of washing!

    • I certainly was! They actually didn’t work for them – they’re the neckers of the individual sub-camps and my younger son decided to buy a full set as a souvenir. He was wearing them when he got home πŸ™‚

    • Thanks very much, they had an amazing time!

    • They are, aren’t they? It was actually both my sons that went, which was very strange!

  8. I have no idea what this is – something from scout camp?

    • It certainly is! It’s a collection of neckers for all the different sub-camps, which my younger son bought as a souvenir and was wearing when he got home! Love him πŸ™‚

    • They have special ones for each sub-camp and my younger son ended up buying the full set!
