Costa Rica, like a lot of other small countries where Scouting is on and off, was represented for the first time at a World Jamboree. The number of Scouts in this fine Central American Country with a population of one and a third million is only 1,000.
Only one person was representing the country – a German Enrigne Uffelmann Piel, National Commissioner for cubs and ex-Scout leader in Germany, Australia, Canada and the U.S.A. who served on the International staff.
Marathon1963.com was constructed during the period January-July 2013, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the 11th World Jamboree. It opened on August 1st, 2013, exactly 50 years from the opening at Marathon.
