Ever Wondered What the Jamboree Journey is Like?

For an idea of what the training and preparation for a World Scout Jamboree is like - as well as the actual Jamboree experience itself - check out our video from the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan.

International Service Team?

The IST are the volunteers who make the Jamboree work, undertaking a wide range of different jobs - but there's also time to see plenty of the Jamboree fun, socialise with other members of the IST and even see something of Korea.

IST applications are now closed and applicants will be advised of the outcome of the selection ballot in February 2022.

Too Young to Come to Korea?

If you're just too young to join us for the 25th World Scout Jamboree in Korea the 26th World Scout Jamboree will be in Poland in 2027.
