24th World Scout Jamboree

when Scouts from around the globe will gather at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, USA, for the 24th World Scout Jamboree. The 24th World Scout Jamboree is an alliance of three NSOs: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and Boy Scouts of America. Each of the three co-hosts has a co-chair. Each co-chair has been approved by the national Scouting organization he represents

Our three countries are getting ready to welcome our Scouting friends as family to experience the theme for the 2019 World Scout Jamboree, “Unlock a New World.” This theme speaks to the new adventures, cultures, and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the 12-day event.

The 24th World Scout 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.

24th World Scout Jamboree is being held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, the most advanced adventure camping base for youth in the world. Activities venues include The Rocks, one of the largest man-made climbing facilities in the world; The Park, one of the largest outdoor skateboarding facilities in the world; and The Trax, one of the largest BMX bike facilities in the world. Add in three man-made lakes and several pools that offer a variety of aquatics activities, and you can start to get an idea of how unique this jamboree will be for its participants.

Unlike any other youth event, the world Scout jamboree invites you to surround yourself in the cultures of the world by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days.

The 2019 World Scout Jamboree begins with arrivals on Monday, July 22, 2019. The first meal planned is dinner on July 22. The jamboree ends with departures on Friday, August 2, 2019. The last meal planned is breakfast on August 2.
Jamboree Logo Design
The logo for the 24th World Scout Jamboree represents the friendship and unity of world Scouting. The globe-shaped design consists of multicolored ribbons featuring the official colors of the national flags of the three host countries and the purple of the world Scouting movement. The logo symbolizes North America reaching out to welcome the world community of Scouting to the 24th World Scout Jamboree. In addition, as the jamboree is an official event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), the World Crest is featured.
