What is the 24th World Scout Jamboree?
The World Scout Jamboree is the largest camping event organized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), gathering as many as 50,000 Scouts and leaders from 169 National Scout Organizations. The 24th World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is co-hosted by Scouts Canada, Association de Scouts de Mexico, and the Boy Scouts of America. The last time the United States hosted a WSJ was in 1967 in Idaho.
The WSJ is an educational event bringing together young men and young women from around the world to promote peace, mutual understanding, and to develop leadership skills. The Jamboree will feature the hallmarks of past World Jamboree programs, such as the Global Development Village, the World Scout Centre, a special sustainability initiative, and the socialization elements that allow participants to make lifelong friends from around the world.
Participation is open to eligible men and women who are registered members in the Boy Scouts of America. World Scout Jamboree units will be organized on a regional (not Council) basis.
The theme for the 24th World Scout Jamboree is "Unlock a New World". This reflects the new adventures, cultures and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world. We hope you can join us!
The United States Contingent is limited on the number of people that we can send to a World Scout Jamboree. While we will be able to send more to this Jamboree than ever before, we expect there to be tremendous interest and encourage folks to apply as soon as possible.
