The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve
The 24th World Scout Jamboree is an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life 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.
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 that will last a lifetime! The event is being held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. The United States, Canada and Mexico are hosting the event.
It is specifically designed for young people ages 14 to 17 years old from National Scout Organizations, which are members of WOSM.
There are three ways to be a part of the USA contingent. Scouts whose birthdays fall between July 22, 2001, and July 21, 2005 (age 14-17 by the time of the jamboree), have the unique opportunity to join the contingent as a youth. Scouters born before July 22, 2001, may apply to be either an adult leader or an IST (International Service Team, a.k.a. staff member).
The USA contingent has 10,000 spots available. Join the mailing list to express your interest in the 2019 World Scout Jamboree - USA Contingent. You will receive occasional emails about going to the WSJ, how to register and important deadlines.
