What is a World Scout Jamboree?

A World Scout Jamboree is a unique gathering when Scouts and Guides from almost every country in the world come together in an environment that promotes peace and international friendship through challenging activities, thought provoking cultural experiences and simply being together.

The atmosphere of a Jamboree is impossible to describe as each has its own distinctive flavour, but it is true to say that many people have been influenced by what can be truly described as a once in a lifetime experience.

You can read about previous World Scout Jamborees in the Scout Association fact sheet "Jamborees of the Past" (311KBytes PDF format).
