Around 3,000 young boys from the 21 towns and two cities of the province are in the mountainous town of Carasi, some 30 kilometers northwest of Laoag, for the 71st Provincial Boy Scout Jamboree slated. With a favorable weather, Carasi mayor Rene Gaspar said the indigenous peoples (IP) community are eager to share their ‘piece of paradise’ to the delegates. Dubbed as the “summer capital” of the province, the Sabo dam and a hanging bridge serve as major attractions for picnickers and nature lovers. Meanwhile, organizers said the provincial jamboree aims to provide a progressive, safe and enjoyable learning environment for the scouts to enhance their physical, social, mental, emotional and spiritual potentials.
