Special Edition: Jamboree on the Internet

Part of Scouting’s great success over the past 113 years has been its enduring ability to adapt and respond to the changing needs of communities at every level.

We are excited to announce a special edition of Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI), the largest digital Scout event held annually!
This special JOTI will be both educational and fun, bringing Scouting to the homes of young people around the world. It will be a space for young people and Scouts to connect, learn and build friendships during this challenging time of social distance.
