The 46th Annual Colombo Camporee organised by the Colombo District Scout Branch Association of the Sri Lanka Scout Association will be held from August 14 to 18 at the Viharamahadevi Park, Colombo.

First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa will open the Camporee on Friday evening (14th) as the chief guest on the invitation of the Sri Lanka's first ever lady Commissioner to organize a Camporee, Assistant District Scout Commissioner Wathsala Wijewickrema.
