Attend the 2019 World Scout Jamboree
The World Scout Jamboree is an event that brings together the world’s youth to promote peace, mutual understanding, and to develop leadership and life skills and 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.
The Summit Bechtel Reserve is a world-class and sustainable Jamboree site and will be home to the 24th World Scout Jamboree. The Summit Bechtel Reserve is located in West Virginia, USA, and is comprised of more than 14,000 acres of beautiful forested mountains adjacent to more than 70,000 acres of national park in the scenic New River Gorge area of West Virginia. Sustainable practices will be evident everywhere you look, as they are at the core of the Summit Bechtel Reserves infrastructure, and sustainability will be a core part of the World Scout Jamboree program.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be unique because it is a team effort by Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. These three countries are getting ready to welcome Scouting friends as family to “Unlock a New World.” Unlike any other youth event, the World Scout Jamboree invites you to surround yourself in diverse global cultures by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. The jamboree experience extends beyond your home—and beyond the boundaries of our countries—to create a global adventure lasting a lifetime!
Scouts have two amazing opportunities to join the staff of the World Scout Jamboree as part of our Rover Brigade and provide service in support of the 50,000 scouts from over 160 countries we will be hosting. The Rover Brigade is composed of two teams, the Puma Patrol and the Baden-Powell Corps. For additional information, visit here.
