Dear Scout Parent:

Thank you for taking time today to hear some answers to your questions about the 2019 World Scout Jamboree.

With the Winter Olympics coming up, view the parade of flags and costumes from around the globe and the mix of cultures on the medals platform.

Then realize the 2019 World Scout Jambore will include a similar parade of flags and mix of cultures.

The dates are July 21 to Aug. 2, 2019.

Participants form patrols in the PA Dutch Council and troops in the U.S. Northeast Region.

They travel as a group to and from West Virginia for the entirety of the event.

At the event, troop members eat breakfast together, then buddies pack a lunch and hike to activity, enrichment and cross-cultural events. Some remote venues such as shooting sports are serviced by bus routes.

Troop members return to the campsite for dinner, campfires and more activities.

Across the 10,000-acre property there are dozens of challenges awaiting participants. From A to Z there are aquatics to ziplines. The Big Zip is 3,000 feet.

Preparations are being made for 40,000 Scouts and Scouters.

About 130 nations will be represented at the World Scout Jamboree.

And, Be Prepared. Globally more Scout organizations are a mix of boys and girls than not.  From some countries half of the participants may be female.

Participants at the start and finish lines of biking, skateboarding, rapelling and dozens more challenges will hail from 6 continents. Everyone will high-5, bump fists and adhere to the Scout Oath and Law.
