scouts are preparing for a trip to Japan, by camping in Harrogate’s Turkish Baths.

Three dozen youngsters, aged from 12 to 16, including Jennifer Cooper, left, and Amy Romanec, are looking forward to a trip of a lifetime to the international World Scout Jamboree in Japan in 2015.

To help them prepare for the 40 degree heat expected on their trip, the scouts from the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Unit have teamed up with the Turkish Baths to practise putting up their tents in its tepidarium heat room.

Graham Holman, baths manager, said: “This is a unique opportunity for the Turkish 
Baths and Health Spa to support a fantastic cause.”

The jamboree will be held in Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi City, from July 28 to August 8 next year. PICTURE: GARY LONGBOTTOM (GL1002/24a)
