World Scout Jamboree
Think big. Dream wild. Act together
In Summer 2023, more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather in Korea for the 25th World Scout Jamboree. We’re so proud that thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will be there.
The World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) happens every four years, each time hosted by a different country. The first WSJ took place in 1920 in the UK, with the last two hosted in the USA in 2019 and then Japan in 2015. The next WSJ will be hosted by The Korea South Association.
We don’t just dream. We act.
We dream about a sustainable world, where everyone’s welcome. But we’re not just about dreaming, Scouts want to see action too. Our Contingent and unit won’t silently creep round global issues, we’ll be trailblazers for getting young voices heard… You’re gonna hear us roar.
We know that dreams come true when we work together.
