“Come See the World” right here in West Virginia.
Excitement for 24th World Scout Jamboree, to be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, has been building and registration is almost upon us, starting on November 1, 2017.
The theme for the 24th World Scout Jamboree is "Unlock a New World" and reflects the new adventures, cultures, and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world as they come together to promote peace, mutual understanding, and respect in a warmly embracing Jamboree experience.
For many, this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only enjoy the adventures at the Summit but to also work with scouts from around the world in seeking answers and solutions to international questions and problems. Scouts will leave the jamboree with a wider view of the world, a deeper understanding of world scouting and a renewed commitment to scouting as a whole.
Please review the memo which provides information on the registration process, eligibility, travel, and the selection process. Fees for the event have not yet been published but will be available when registration opens.
Everyone interested to register as soon as possible as the number of participants and staff from the US is limited.
Please feel free to contact me for any questions.
Yours in Scouting,
Washington Crossing Council
