When our founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell was asked where religion comes into Scouting, he replied “It does not come in at all. It is already there. It is a fundamental factor underlying Scouting.”

Jamboree-Wide Scout’s Own Service
Sunday, 28 July, 2019 | 8:30am EST
LOCATION: AT&T Summit Stadium
This is a unique opportunity to experience camaraderie from a world-wide array of Scouts. This service will be a mixture of readings, reflections, music, and prayers. We will even harken back to days of old when Lord Baden-Powell delivered similar messages to the very first World Scout Jamborees held in Europe. We will join with the 24th World Scout Jamboree Band, consisting of Scout musicians from six continents, as we come together in Scout Spirit and in song. We will understand the meaning of the World Brotherhood of Scouting. We will hear stories of inspiration from Scout Leaders that can help shape our Scout values. One of the highlights today will be the opportunity for YOU to be part of an attempt to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD, hopefully one that will stand for years to come. You will not want to miss this Scout’s Own service; bring along a friend that you have met at the 24th World Scout Jamboree!
Daily Subcamp Services
Every morning, jamboree chaplains from various faiths will offer services all over the jamboree. Check the schedule below for the current listing of services available in subcamps.
