In the summer of 2015, Japan will be welcoming 30 000 Scouts from all over the world to the 23rd World Scout Jamboree. The theme for the event is "Wa – A Spirit of Unity".

The World Scout Jamboree is the largest regular event organised by the Scout Movement, and takes place every four years. It is above all an educational event to promote peace and understanding. The World Scout Jamboree includes a wide variety of activities and also places great importance on the everyday life and interaction on the campsite.

Participants must be 14-17 years old at the time of the event. If you are 18 or older you can take part as International Service Team (IST, volunteer staff). You register through your National Scout Organization, and are part of a National Contingent.

Want to take part in the event? Contact your National Scout Organization.

Je rêve d'aller au Japon en 2015 mais malheureusement, c'est impossible.. Pour avoir participé au 22ème Jamboree Mondial en Suède, je sais que c'est une expérience magnifique dans une vie. Je vous envie !!

I dream to go to Japan in 2015 but unfortunaly, it's impossible.. To have to participate to the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden, I know it's a beautiful experience in a life. I envy you !!

No, actually @Arfi12_A_Pramuka_Boy
awalnya aku cuma liat liat promotional video nya, tapi gak lama ortu dukung buat ikut, sampe ke samarinda buat ngurus surat rekomendasi, pas udah dapet surat rekomendasi, orangtuaku cuma bolehin aku ikut WSJ kalo aku ada temen dari KalTim :'( lagian juga biaya nya itu yaa cukup mahal, nyesekkkkk

@PolScoutCat what?! Alone? What do you mean? How about your parents? In Indonesia, the registration to join at the Jamboree will be end at November 30th :'(
My parents pleased me to join that Jamboree, but they're afraid something will be happen if I go without my parents with a long period, yeah, too much love -__-

Yes, I have my father and my moder but the leaders of my troop don't tink go to the jamoree is posible. Moreover the scout association of my nation don't gives us many facilities :'(
Finally, I was thinking to search an other places and oportunities to meet new people, travel, meet other ways to practice scouting and have fun with all this!!!!

ooooh, so sad :'( yeah, maybe there is another way for us to have fun with another scout from entire the world :) Keep Spirit! how old are you? @PolScoutCat btw I'm 13. Do you have a Facebook? or twitter? or Instagram? Ask.Fm? any other account? I want to talk more with you :)
