Scouting has been active in Japan since 1909, although it went dormant during World War II.  It is now completely coeducational, so it would be incorrect to refer to their members as "Boy Scouts."

Here is the Scout Oath in Japanese:

私は、名誉にかけて、次の3条の実行をちかいます。 1.神(仏)と国とに誠を尽くしおきてを守ります。 1.いつも、他の人々をたすけます。 1.からだを強くし、心をすこやかに、徳を養います。

The 23rd Annual World Scout Jamboree is being held July 30 through August 6th in Krara-hama, Japan.  These scouts got together to deliver an important message!

Tips & Tricks

Your patrol will consider you a gourmet chef when you serve them Hamburger Stroganoff at your next campout!
  • 2 pounds hamburger
  • 16 ounce package of wide egg noodles
  • 1 can Campbells Golden Mushroom soup
  • 1 pint of sour cream
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 pint of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 stick of butter
  1. Fill a pot with two quarts of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the egg noodles to the pot and cook until done (about 10 to 12 minutes).

  3. Peel the onion and chop it up.
  4. Rinse the mushrooms.
  5. Melt a half stick of butter in a large skillet, then add the mushrooms and onions.
  1. When the mushrooms and onions have cooked down, add the hamburger to the skillet.
  2. Brown the hamburger, breaking up any chunks, then drain the liquid from the skillet.
  3. Drain the noodles (remember the noodles?) and the remaining half stick of butter into the pot.
  4. Over low heat, stir the mushroom soup into the meat mixture in the skillet. When the mixture is hot, and right before serving, remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the sour cream.
  5. Serve the stroganoff on top of the buttered noodles -- YUM!
