WHAT’s a World Scout Jamboree?  

The World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is the largest regular event organized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM),
gathering up to 50,000 Scouts from more than 169 countries around the World.

It is an educational event to promote peace and understanding among young people from different cultures.

The World Scout Jamboree includes many activities available at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve.

For more information, visit the host website at 2019wsj.org.

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will take place at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve in West Virginia from July 21, 2019, to August 2, 2019.
Participation is open to eligible youth (age 14 – 17), unit leaders (18 and older) and International Service Team (IST), who serve as Jamboree Staff (18 and older).

The first Jamboree took place in England in 1920 and the 2019 WSJ will be the 24th Jamboree in Scouting history!

Join in the Fun!

Adventure, Friendship, Service, Sustainability, and Leadership are all wonderful ingredients on their own.

Put them together and they form a truly unforgettable meal.

Willy Xiao, a member of the Jamboree planning team known as The Dream Team, shares his recipe for a World Scout Jamboree.
