2019 World Jamboree - Updated Information and Costs

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held in 2019 at the BSA’s new permanent Jamboree home: the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. It will be co-hosted by three Scout organizations: the Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada and Asociación de Scouts de México.

A World Jamboree in our country is a once-in-a-generation event. The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be the first held in North America in 36 years (1983, Alberta, Canada) and the first held in the United States in 52 years (1967, Idaho).

Some 50,000 Scouts and Scouters from 167 different countries are expected at the event, to be held July 22 to Aug. 2, 2019. They’ll meet people from around the world while enjoying SBR’s world-class adventure offerings.

The promise of the World Scout Jamboree on American soil is encompassed in the U.S. contingent’s motto: “The Boy Scouts of America wants you to come see the world!”
