"All preparations of the camp are complete," Bangladesh Scouts public relations officer Md Delwar Hussain said.
 
As many as 350 rover scouts and officials of SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries, including Bangladesh, India, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Pakistan and Afghanistan, are taking part in the camp, he said.
