Scouting isn’t just popular in America. In fact, more than 160 countries worldwide have national Scouting organizations. And every four years, the World Organization of the Scout Movement brings contingents from many of those countries together for the World Scout Jamboree, an educational event to promote peace and understanding among young people from different cultures.

Each Jamboree is hosted by a different national Scouting organization or organizations and brings together tens of thousands of Scouts ages 14 to 17, unit leaders, and International Service Team members from around the world. Since the first World Scout Jamboree in London in 1920, Jamborees have been held in countries throughout Europe, as well as in Canada, the United States, Australia, Japan, the Philippines, South Korea, Chile, and Thailand.

July 22 - August 2, 2019

The next World Scout Jamboree, “Unlock a New World,” will be held here in the United States — for the first time since 1967 — at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. It is co-hosted by the national Scouting organizations of United States, Canada, and Mexico.
