World Scout Jamboree
63 Scouts from GLMW are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime where they will join Scouts from around the world at the Summit Betchel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, USA, for the 24th World Scout Jamboree.
The theme for the jamboree is “Unlock a New World” to reflect the new adventures, cultures and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the 12-day event held on a continent many refer to as the “New World” in North America.
As Scouts from around the world embark on their adventure to North America, they may encounter obstacles that seem to be locked with no solution. However, during their time at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, Scouts will seek answers and solutions to international questions and problems. Together, they will search for ways to unlock a new world, even if it means forging their own keys.
Discovery of the New World will be met with open arms as Scouts step out of their comfort zones and into the mixing bowl that is North American culture. Guests will leave with a wider view of the world, a deeper understanding of North America, and a renewed commitment to Scouting as a whole. When Scouts join together to Unlock a New World, they give themselves the chance to start over as members of the global community and to work together for mutual gains that improve everyone’s situation.
After an intensive selection process, our participants have been selected and will make up two units led by Sanjay Chandarana and Mouadh Nemri.
