World Scouting Jamboree
Don’t Miss the 2019 World Jamboree
The 2019 World Jamboree will be co-hosted by the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and will be held at the Summit in West Virginia on July 21 to August 2, 2019. The United States has only hosted one other World Jamboree in 1967 in Idaho. This one is only a few hours from your home.
How can you compare a National Jamboree and a World Jamboree? The answer is: “You can’t compare them.” A World Jamboree is about meeting people from other countries and learning about them and their cultures. There are dinner exchanges and opportunities to visit Troops from other countries and sample their food and activities. Your Troop will be camped next to Troops from other countries. And all of the activities at The Summit will be open and available at this World Jamboree! There has never been another Jamboree like this one and probably will not be another like it in the future.
We are allotted 6 units from Central Region Area 6 with one being a coed Venturing unit. At this time there are only 126 openings left, so sign up today at www.2019wsj.us. You must be 14 and not yet 18 years old by July 21, 2019. The cost is $2,500.00. Scholarship funds are available. Be sure that you are one of the Scouts who have the opportunity to experience this mountaintop experience.
