24th World Scout Jamboree coming to the Summit Bechtel Reserve in 2019

Unlock a New World!  24th World Scout Jamboree

The 24th World Scout Jamboree is July 22 through August 2, 2019, at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reservation.

The theme for the 24th World Scout Jamboree is Unlock a New World and was developed by the youth bid team, also known as the Dream Team. This theme speaks to the new adventures, cultures, and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the 12-day event in North America, a continent often referenced as a “New World.”

As Scouts from around the world embark on their adventure to North America, they may encounter obstacles that seem to be locked with no solution. However, during their time at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, Scouts will seek answers and solutions to international questions and problems. Together, they will search for ways to unlock a new world, even if it means forging their own keys.

There are several ways to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree

You can attend as a youth participant or an adult leader. 

Participants, youth and adults, register to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree as part of an official National Scout Organization (NSO) contingent.  To be eligible as a youth participant at the 24th World Scout Jamboree, Scouts must have been born between 22 July 2001 and 21 July 2005. Older participants can consider applying to become a member of the International Service Team (IST), the contingent team or a unit leader. The age requirements were approved by the World Scout Committee and WOSM.

Scouts who are at least 18 years of age at the start of the jamboree are welcome to join the IST. IST members should be ready to perform any tasks necessary for the jamboree. In addition, IST members must register and attend the jamboree as part of a National Scout OrganizationExternal Link contingent.  IST members will work as part of a team and we are looking for people with a positive attitude who are ready to lend a hand with whatever needs to be done. To build the best possible team, IST members will have the opportunity to express their top three volunteer job preferences when the registration process opens. A catalogue of IST jobs with a description will be provided.
