What is a World Scout Jamboree?

The World Scout Jamboree is above all 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 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.

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 24th World Scout Jamboree is an official educational event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement. It is specifically designed for young people ages 14 to 17 years old from National Scout Organizations, which are members of WOSM.

To be eligible to be a youth participant at the 24th World Scout Jamboree, you must be born between 22 July 2001 and 21 July 2005. If you are older on the given date, you may be able to apply to become a member of the International Service Team or contingent team, or a unit leader. The exact age requirements have been approved by the World Scout Committee.

This 24th World Scout Jamboree is unique because it is a team effort by Scouts CanadaAsociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. Our three countries are getting ready to welcome our Scouting friends as family to “Unlock a New World.”
