24th World Scout Jamboree
North America 2019
Scouts selected to represent the Island
After a rigorous selection process, in rather damp conditions, the nine Scouts who will represent the Isle of Man at the World Scout Jamboree in 2019 have been selected.
Pictured l-r are Archie W, David C, Matthew R, Vannin C, Ethan Q, Alex (Unit Leader), Tom B, Conor C, Izzy C and Amy G.
The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be held July 22 through August 2, 2019, at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, USA. For the first time, a world jamboree will be hosted by three national Scout organisations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. These three distinct cultures will join together to host the world Scouting community in a celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship.
The Summit Bechtel Reserve, a world class, sustainable, Jamboree site, will be the site of the 2019 World Scout Jamboree. The Summit Bechtel Reserve is located in West Virginia, USA, and is comprised of more than 14,000 acres of beautiful forested mountains adjacent to more than 70,000 acres of national park in the scenic New River Gorge area of West Virginia.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will provide memories that you never thought imaginable. Whether it is sharing a stage at a talent show with someone you just met, flying on a zip line across Adventure Valley, or attending an interfaith service with Scouts of many different backgrounds, there will be no shortage of experiences to fill your day and enrich your life. You will realise that you are part of something larger than yourself, and that the Scouting movement, and you, as a Messenger of Peace, have the ability to make the world a better place, starting each and every day. We invite you to visit North America, to meets Scouts from around the world on the Avenue of Flags, to challenge yourself with the adventure experiences of The Summit Bechtel Reserve, and in the course of your jamboree experience, realise your international dream.
The theme of the jamboree is Unlock a New World. The 24th World Scout Jamboree is all about unlocking new friendships and understanding new cultures, all at a venue that will challenge you to do things you did not think were possible. Imagine the possibilities when Scouts from more than 162 accredited National Scouting Organisations come together to enjoy the World Scout Jamboree experience at The Summit Bechtel Reserve.
