Participant and Visitor Experience Vision
To ensure Scouts, Scouters, and visitors attending the 24th World Scout Jamboree feel welcomed and prepared for an exciting, fun-filled, and safe environment of friendship, fellowship, and learning & growth, with plenty of inspiration jam-packed into numerous challenging experiences. To deliver the promise of Scouting with this event by building bridges between people, cultures, ideas, and lands while encouraging continued grow and development as leaders, life-long learners, and citizens of the global community, and to perpetuate the principles of Scouting that bring honor and respect to every individual, the Scout Promise, and the Scouting movement around the globe.
Please note: West Virginia is a rural area, and most hotel rooms near the jamboree will be reserved by groups supporting the jamboree operation.
