World Jamboree: July 22 – August 2, 2019
December 06, 2017
What: The World Jamboree of Scouting
Where: The Bechtel Summit Scout Reserve, Mt. Hope, West bygod Virginia.
When: 22 July thru 2 August, 2019
Who: Scouts from more than 160 nations. Scouts born between July 22, 2001 and
July 21, 2005 can attend. Adult Scouters are needed for NCAC contingents and International Staff.
Why: You are not alone. Make new friends. See things from another perspective.
How Much & How Do: Read the fine print. NO EXCEPTIONS in registration.
More Why: This is the same place where BSA holds national jamborees,
High Adventure camps, Training and more! Only about a 5 or 6 hour drive from the beltway. This is absolutely the greatest experience a Scout — or adult Scouter — can have. It’s extremely rare to have this event in the US; the last one was in 1967. It is jointly sponsored by BSA, Scouts Canada and the Mexican Scout Association.
Scouts who were born before July 22, 2001 can attend as staff. This is a great chance for your college-age and young adult Eagle alumni to pay forward some of what they gained from Scouting. The international staff tends to be young, so they will meet a lot of interesting people.
REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW and this event is likely to be very popular in this area, so sign up early!
