World Scout Jamboree 2019
For the first time, a World Scout Jamboree will be hosted by three national Scout organisations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. These three distinct cultures will join together to host the world Scouting community in a celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship. A Jamboree is a gathering of Scouts from all over the world.
The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be held July 22 through August 2, 2019, at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, USA. Unlike any other youth event, a World Scout Jamboree invites you to surround yourself in the cultures of the world by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. Not to mention, the UK currently seeks to provide extra elements of the trip (previously these have been activities in major cities and home-stay options to really experience different cultures).
Make lifelong friendships and memories with young people from more than 200 nations and territories. Unlock a new world of life-changing experiences that will help you develop your physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual life. Bike, hike, climb, fly, and swim at the world’s premier youth adventure camp.
The theme for the 24th World Scout Jamboree is “Unlock a New World”. This theme speaks to the new adventures, cultures, and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the event.
To be eligible to be a youth participant at the 24th World Scout Jamboree, you must be born between 22nd July, 2001, and 21st July, 2005. There will be absolutely no exceptions to this rule.
If you are older than this, you may still be able to come! Scouts who are at least 18 years of age at the start of the Jamboree are welcome to join the IST. More information about this will be available soon.
