24th World Scout Jamboree

2nd Chilwell Scout Ewan Hoole has arrived at the 24th World Scout Jamboree in the USA.

The World Scout Jamboree is held every four years in different countries.

The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills.

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will feature the hallmarks of past world jamboree programs, such as the Global Development Village, special sustainability initiatives, and the socialization elements that allow participants to make lifelong friends from around the world.

Unlike any other youth event, the World Scout Jamboree invites you to surround yourself in diverse global cultures by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. The jamboree experience extends beyond your home—and beyond the boundaries of our countries—to create a global adventure that will last a lifetime!

Situated in the wilds of West Virginia, The Summit Bechtel Reserve is a training, Scouting, and adventure center for the millions of youth and adults involved in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and anyone who loves the outdoors. The Summit Bechtel Reserve is also home to the BSA’s National Scout Jamborees, and its Paul R. Christen National High Adventure Base complements the BSA’s other high adventure bases: Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier and Florida Sea Base.

The Summit is a world-class, sustainable jamboree site with more than 14,000 acres (5,667 ha) of beautiful forested mountains adjacent to more than 70,000 acres (28,328 ha) of national park in the scenic New River Gorge area of West Virginia.

We hope that Ewan has a great time.
