24th World Scout Jamboree

Scouts From Around the World

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.

Dates: July 22-August 2, 2019 (U.S. participants arrive on July 21 to assist with greeting other participants from around the world)

Location: Summit Bechtel Reserve, Glen Jean, West Virginia (about 1 hour southeast of Charleston, WV)
