Welcome to the Australian Contingent to the 24th World Scout Jamboree being held in North America from the 22nd July to the 2nd August 2019. Applications to join the Australian Contingent are expected to open in early 2017 and will close shortly afterwards.
The Australian Contingent is currently exploring options for pre and post tours to compliment this amazing event. Further information will be available over the coming months for you to provide input into the pre and post tours so that we can tailor the experience to exceed your expectations.
We encourage all Australian Scouts and Leaders to register their interest so that we can keep you up to date. The eligible age range for youth members is 14 to 18 years as at the dates of the event.
In early 2016 applications will open for a number of Contingent Management Team positions including two Assistant Contingent Leaders, which will be youth members who were participants at WSJ2015 in Japan.
Yours in Scouting
Australian Contingent Leader
24th World Scout Jamboree
The World Scout Jamboree is an amazing experience, and unlike any you would have experienced before.
You will join over 40,000 Scouts from all around the world, experience different cultures, and make lots of new friends. You may be camped next to a troop that speaks a different language than you, but together you will be sharing moments of Scouting fellowship that are hard to create anywhere else.
Our host countries, Canada, Mexico, and the United States, will provide glimpses into each of their unique cultures. 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.
The Summit Bechtel Reserve, a world class, sustainable Jamboree site, will be the home 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 program will capture the four core values of Scouting: adventure, service, sustainability, and leadership.
For the first time at a World Scout Jamboree, participants will experience adventures such as white water rafting, rock climbing, and mountain biking. Adventure Valley offers world-class climbing, mountain biking, and zip lining. The Rocks, one of the largest man-made climbing facilities in the world, and The Ropes, balance beams, cargo nets, and other challenges, are guaranteed to raise your pulse. SBR's zip lines cover 5.45 miles and rank as one of the top sites in the world. The Low Gear and High Gear mountain bike courses provide more than 36 miles of cross country and downhill mountain bike trails. Add The Park, one of the largest outdoor skateboard facilities in the world, and The Trax, one of the largest BMX facilities, designed and constructed by the designer for ESPN's X Games, and you start to get an idea of how unique this jamboree will be.
By registering your interest with the Australian Contingent, we will keep you up to date with the Contingent's plans.
