DID YOU KNOW…We want to help you get to the


2015 World Jamboree in Japan

Tuesday, July 28 to Saturday, August 8, 2015 


More than 30,000 Scouts and leaders from 161 countries around the world will converge on Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan, for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.


The event will provide opportunities to raise awareness about global issues, explore the environment, participate in community service, make friends from around the world, and deepen understanding of developments in science and technology. The World Scout Jamboree is a unique opportunity for participants to experience an exciting program of activities, including: Global Development Village, City of Science, Crossroads of Culture, and the Peace Program.


Participants will live and learn with fellow Scouts from around the world. They will be housed in tents along with the BSA contingent but will soon venture out to mingle with tens of thousands of people for two weeks of activities and adventure. That’s right, a world fellowship exercise on an enormous scale!


The BSA’s plans for sending a contingent to the 23rd World Scout Jamboree are being finalized and will be available soon. Until then, add your name to the mailing list for promotional materials when they are ready.


Those interested in attending the 2015 World Jamboree should contact: Charles “Doc” Goodwin, Area 6 World Jamboree Chairman, at (937) 885-3804, or mobile (937) 609-0222.
