MORE than 1,300 scouts from counties as far away as America and Denmark descended on Huntingdon Race Course to enjoy an international Scouting camp.

Cam Jam, the Cambridgeshire scouting international camp, came to an end on August 13 after six days of organised activities including go-karting, wall climbing, archery, glass painting and candle making.

Evening entertainment included a Robbie Williams tribute act, a toga fancy dress party and a pirate fancy dress disco.

Christopher Gawthrop-Bleet, spokesman for the event, said: "The aim was to promote world peace and improve relationships among different countries. The majority of scouts were from across Cambridgeshire but others came from Scotland and Ireland. Organisers spent four years planning this event and it was a wonderful success.
