The World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is the largest regular event organized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), gathering up to 40,000 Scouts from more than 150 countries around the World.  It is an educational event to promote peace and understanding among young people from different cultures.  The World Scout Jamboree includes many activities available at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve. 

Who can attend?

If you want to attend as a participant, you must be between the age of 14 and 18 (born between July 22, 2001 and July 21, 2005 (no exceptions).  Adults over the age of 18 can serve on the International Service Team (IST) and as unit leaders.  All participants, unit leaders and IST must be members of the Boy Scouts of America.  The WSJ Contingent is open to all Boy Scouts and Venturers who meet the age requirement.  In addition, Scouts must meet the physical requirements for attending the Summit Bechtel Reserve, found on the Summit Health Form. 

 

How much will it cost?

The Contingent Management Team is working on determining fees for the USA Contingent now.  We expect that the cost for the WSJ will be slightly less than the cost of attending a National Scout Jamboree at the Summit.  The cost will include transportation.  To make the WSJ as affordable as possible, there will be no pre-tour or post-tour for the USA Contingent.

How can I apply?
Registration will open in early Fall, 2017.   Watch this website wsj2019.us for an announcement soon.  In the meantime, follow us on social media to receive registration information as soon as it is available. Find our social media links at the bottom of this page. Once you register, and your application is accepted by your Council and the National Office, you will be assigned to a unit with other Scouts from your area.  Each unit will have 36 Scouts and four adults.  You will receive additional information about your unit from your Jamboree Scoutmaster.  Our contingent will have 180 units, totaling 7,200 participants.  In addition, we will have 2,700 Scouts from the USA on the International Service Team.

How will we travel to the WSJ?

The USA Contingent will have representatives from all 50 States, US Territories and from overseas Councils that provide BSA programs to US citizens serving abroad. The Western region will have transportation plans appropriate for their trip to the Jamboree.  Units of participants from the West Coast will travel by air.  The contingent fee will vary based on the travel distance to the Jamboree.
