World Jamboree 2019

24th World Scout Jamboree

Join up to 50,000 Scouts from over 150 countries during the 24th World Jamboree.

The 2019 World Scout Jamboree is the largest camping event organized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement, gathering 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 World Jamboree is an event that brings 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.

We hope you’ll join Scouts and Scouters from across the BSA for this opportunity to “Come See the World”.  Scouts will not only enjoy the adventures at the Summit, but will also work with Scouts from around the world in seeking answers and solutions to international questions and problems. Scouts will leave the Jamboree with a wider view of the world, a deeper understanding of world Scouting, and a renewed commitment to Scouting as a whole.
