If you have applied to be part of our additional IST this page is for you.
What is it all about?
The 24th World Scout Jamboree is being jointly hosted by Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada, and Asociación de Scouts de México. The Jamboree will take place at the Summit Bechtel reserve in West Virginia USA between 22 July to 2 August 2019. The theme for the Jamboree is Unlock a New World. You can find out more here.
The UK Contingent vision for the event is to deliver a unique international adventure shaped by young people, where contingent members will develop personally and have a positive longer term impact on Scouting and beyond.
What else do I need to know?
Whichever option you choose, you will receive UK Contingent Kit and receive an invite to the Contingent's preparation weekends.
You will also get your meals provided during the Jamboree period and the use of a tent during the Jamboree.
The preparation weekends will take place over the weekends of the 13th-14th April (a kickstarter event for IST) and the UK Contingent All Adults' Weekend on 17th-18th May. Attendance at these events is compulsory for all members of the IST joining at this stage.
