Welcome from the Dream Team
Hello! ¡Hola! Salut! Welcome to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in North America, where you will spend the next 12 days unlocking a new world of friendship, leadership, and adventure. It is time to dive in with your eyes, ears, and mind wide open as you experience Scouting in a way you never have before.
Seven years ago, we, the Dream Team, set out on a journey to make this the best World Scout Jamboree experience ever! Gathered as three youth from each of our host National Scout Organizations, we traveled the world, learning about what you wanted on this epic adventure and sharing with you what our three host countries had to offer. Now young Scouters ourselves, we are spread throughout the Jamboree Planning Team, joined by many other youth and young adult leaders to integrate your ideas into this event. At this Jamboree, we are extremely excited that you’ll interact with friendly members of the Rover Brigade, enjoy more free time as an IST, and use innovative technology like Novus wristbands, just for starters!
Now, go and maximize your experience. As you discover the diversity of Scouting styles, cultures, and languages right here on this incredible site, can you meet a new friend from a different country every day? Making Scouting friends from all over the world has been the most rewarding part of our experience so far, and for you, it can turn this 12-day experience into an adventure of a lifetime. So, where in the world will Scouting take you next?
Yours in Scouting,
The Dream Team
Welcome from the Executive Team
Your Scouting friends from Canada, Mexico, and the United States are excited to welcome you to the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve for the 24th World Scout Jamboree!
Experience the theme of this Jamboree, Unlock a New World, which speaks to the new adventures, cultures, and friendships you will share with Scouts from around the world. Scouting’s founder, Robert Baden-Powell, challenged the Scouts of the world at the 1st World Scout Jamboree to “develop peace and happiness in the world and goodwill among men.” We accept that challenge. 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 in a warmly embracing environment.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will feature hallmarks of past World Scout Jamborees, such as the Global Development Village, massive stadium shows, and cultural exhibits. You will also live Scouting at the most advanced adventure camping base for youth in the world! There are more programs here than you could ever imagine, so go ahead and chart your course. Take advantage of your opportunity to make friends with Scouts from around the world in 12 unforgettable days, all without leaving the Summit Bechtel Reserve.
A special thanks to our International Service Team and contingent and unit leaders who have worked so hard to make this Jamboree possible by creating an adventure in an amazing place, allowing us to make new friends, learn new things, and most importantly have FUN!
Yours in Scouting,
The Executive Team
