What is a Jamboree?
A Jamboree is a gathering of Scouts at a national or international level. Typically a Jamboree takes place every four years and is an amazing opportunity for young people to come together and experience an exciting programme of global development, peace, cultural understanding, adventure, fun, and friendship.
The World Scout Jamboree and European Jamboree programmes are organised for Scouts aged 14–18. However, many other Jamborees are held around the world and in the UK which may incorporate other age groups. Kandersteg International Scout Centre in Switzerland is home to the permanent mini Jamboree campsite. Other opportunities include the annual Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) and Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI).
