DID YOU KNOW? The World Is Waiting


Do you remember the last time the World Jamboree was held in the United States? If so, you’re either a student of BSA history or a long- time Scouter. The answer is 1967, two years before humans landed on the moon. Lyndon B. Johnson was president of the United States.


The big bash hasn’t been held on the North American continent since 1983, when Canada played host. Now Scouting’s 24th World Jamboree is headed back to the USA in 2019, bound for The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia. The selection, showcasing Scouting’s newest adventure base, was a win-win-win thanks to a joint bid by the BSA, Scouts Canada, and Asociación de Scouts de México.


In the meantime, this summer’s world event will be held in Sweden, while Japan will precede the United States in 2015.
