More than 1,000 scouts from around the world are in Cornwall for the start of the Kernow Jamboree near Bodmin.

The week-long camp, which is organised by the Cornwall County Scouts, is being held at the Pencarrow House.

More than 200 volunteers are involved in running activities for the youngsters who are aged between 10 and 18 years old.

Beavers, cubs and brownies will also be able to visit the site for a special one-day jamboree.

The visiting scouts will be coming from as far afield as Hong Kong and Ghana.

Volunteers are travelling from the Netherlands and Canada to take part.

As well as on-site activities there will be events on Bodmin Moor and Siblyback Lake. The jamboree runs until Saturday 3 August.
