Arriving at Spokane-Airport on a 707, coming from Frankfurt/Germany, about 150 boyscouts and their leaders arrived at the Jamboree-site in July 1967.Yes, The Motto was "for Friendship". We build up our camp only a few footsteps away from NASA Capsule Gemini
Also remember Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson greeting at the Welcome-Evening and an Astronaut flying above the stage due to a rocket on his back. Many more memories. Beginning 10th of August a 3 weeks journey on three buses took us to Yellowstone, Salt Lake City, Grand Canyon (we walked down to Colorado river and back up), New Mexico, Denver, Washington D.C. and New York.
We were very friendly hosted by families, who´s children were scouts in Ogden, Washington DC and Pearl River near New York.

Very fond memories of Idaho.
I put together a reunion for the 150 Australian contingent in 1992 for 25 years, we had 120 and 29 apologises.
Went pack to Idaho in 1995 and drove around the site with my wife.Friendship Tower still there so was swimming area. Could not believe how beautiful the scenery was.

I can remember the 12th World Scouting Jamboree just like yesterday, an honour to have attended making many International friends. I would love to attend a Re-union and relive the magic of 1967. So many wonderful memories " For Friendship" to be continued.

'It was a great time from beginning to end. First plane ride from Toronto to Calgary Catching the bus and heading south. Arrival at the Jamboree setting up, meeting new friends. Watching the astronaut jet pack demonstration. The day at Cor d'Alene rodeo to the closing ceremonies. Heading back to Canada and going to Vancouver then flying back to Toronto. It was an EXPERIENCE
