The World Scout Jamboree is the largest regular event organised by the Scout Movement, gathering up to 40 000 people from all over the world. 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).
The World Scout Jamboree takes place every four years in a different country. The first World Scout Jamboree took place in England in 1920.
Japan hosted the World Scout Jamboree in 2015 and the next World Scout Jamboree will be held in USA in 2019. For more information about the 24th World Scout Jamboree 2019 in USA, visit the event library or the event site.
