International Service Team Arrival and Departure

International Service Team members should plan to arrive between 08:00 and 22:00 on Thursday 18 July 2019, Friday 19 July 2019, or Saturday 20 July 2019, as directed by your area lead. IST will be able to depart the jamboree on Friday 2 August 2019 or Saturday 3 August 2019.

All ISTs will need to arrive prior to the Contingent arrival date of Monday 22 July 2019 to alleviate congestion during the check-in process at the Ruby Welcome Center. This will also enable IST to better acclimatize to the Summit Bechtel Reserve, the site for the 24th World Scout Jamboree.

International Service Team Schedule:

18 July 2019 – Official IST arrival begins

19 July 2019 – Meet Area/Team Leads and position training

20 July 2019 – Position training and site set-up

21 July 2019 – Position training and site set-up

22 July 2019 – All Contingents arrive

Area/Team Leads will notify those IST requested to arrive earlier than 18 July 2019 and arrangements will have to be made for pick-up from the official points of entry.

Please note that there are three official World Scout Jamboree entry points:

Air Travel:

  • Yeager Airport (CRW) / Charleston, WV
  • Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) / Charlotte, NC

Rail Travel:

  • Prince Amtrak Train Station (PRC) / Prince, WV

ISTs are responsible for their own transportation to and from their home to one of the three official World Scout Jamboree entry points. Transportation arrival and departure shuttle times to the Ruby Welcome Center from the three official entry points will be scheduled with the IST in advance.  IST arriving by personal transportation will also need to schedule arrival and departure times. Transportation from locations other than the three official World Scout Jamboree entry points is not available.

All IST members should complete the Arrival and Departure Transportation Request Form online for scheduling arrival at the Jamboree.

Unscheduled arrivals will result in delays at check-in, please schedule even if you are providing your own transportation.

If you have questions about the transportation process, please read the Transportation Frequently Asked Questions.
