Home > International



The 24th World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) will take place between 22nd July and 2nd August 2019 at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, USA in 2019.

The WSJ is an huge Scouting event that happens every four years, where over 35,000 Scouts from across the world come together to camp for approx.10 days. A WSJ involves lots of activities and meeting fellow Scouts from around the world. The organisers; America, Mexico and Canada, want it to be the biggest and best WSJ to date – it is sure to be epic!

The WSJ is known worldwide in Scouting, and is seen as a great honour to be able to attend. The theme is, Unlock a New World, which invites you to unlock new adventures, new cultures, and new friendships.

Congratulations to Mark Smith (Unit Leader), Pauline Deacon, Steve Bowman and Becca Sturgeon-Lewis who have been selected to be the Unit Leadership team.
