A Few Fun Facts For The 2015 World Scout Jamboree

The time to register for the 2015 World Scout Jamboree is now.

Just in case you’re still on the fence, here are few things you need to know:

1. Where is it?

The 2015 World Scout Jamboree will be held at Kirarahama, a beach located in the Yamaguchi Prefecture of Japan.








2. Who can go?

The event is open to Scouts ages 14 to 17. Venturers ages 18 to 20 can attend as part of the International Service Team or as assistant leaders.

3. What is the BSA “contingent”?

A contingent is the entire group the BSA sends to this event. Right now, we are planning on sending approximately 1,600 people as part of the BSA’s world jamboree contingent.

4. What will we do?

Have fun. The Welcome the World Project creates ties between our Scouts and local Scout groups in Japan. They may communicate on the Internet or exchange letters, launch a project together, or visit one another. A one-day, off-site program to Hiroshima will provide an opportunity for all participants to learn from the World War II atomic bombings. The Global Development Village will be an on-site module program to raise awareness of global issues such as peace, the environment, development, human rights, and health among participants. A full-day nature module program will foster better understanding of the surrounding nature and bring appreciation for the environment. Plus, water activities such as sailing, wind surfing, snorkeling, rafting and fishing will be carried out on lakes, rivers or the nearby coast.
