What is a World Scout Jamboree?!

A World Scout Jamboree is a gathering every 4 years for Scouts from all across the globe. They take part in a variety of activities from sustainability to water adventure to Science to Global Traditions. There is also a Culture Day where different countries show off an aspect of their life. Every time it is in a new location; the 24th World Scout Jamboree was in North America and the 25th World Scout Jamboree is to be held in SaeManGuem, South Korea. It is a great opportunity to meet Scouts from all across the globe and make friends for life.

‘Draw your Dream’ is the theme of the 25th World Scout Jamboree. Find out more about the event via the organiser’s website where you will find more on the theme ‘Draw your Dream’, the programme and the location.
