A World Scout Jamboree is a world Scouting event for young people aged between 14 and 18. The 24th World Scout Jamboree will take place in the USA during July and August 2019. The event is being hosted by the Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada and Scouts of Mexico. This is the largest event delivered by Scouting worldwide and over 30,000 young people and adult volunteers are expected to attend from over 150 countries. The Scout Association UK is planning to send a contingent the size of 10% of the total attendance at the Jamboree, exact numbers are yet to be confirmed by the Jamboree Organisers.
The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be held from 22 July until 2 August 2019, at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, USA. Unlike any other youth event, a World Scout Jamboree invites young scouts to surround themselves in the cultures of the world by joining Scouting friends from throughout the world at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. The Jamboree experience extends beyond their home and beyond the boundaries of the host countries to create a global adventure that will last a lifetime.
