The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world’s young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will feature the hallmarks of past world jamboree programs, such as the Global Development Village, the World Scout Centre, a special sustainability initiative, and the socialization elements that allow participants to make lifelong friends from around the world.
Unlike any other youth event, the World Scout Jamboree invites you to surround yourself in diverse global cultures by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. The jamboree experience extends beyond your home—and beyond the boundaries of our countries—to create a global adventure that will last a lifetime!

The Kilted Krew’s Summer of Fundraising
It’s been a summer of fundraising for the Kilted Krew heading to the 24thWorld Scout Jamboree in West Virginia next summer.
The whistle blew at the Stirling Kilomathon, followed by non-stop bake sales, bag packing, car washes, afternoon teas, book stalls, and many many galas. We also featured at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival handing out the finisher packs to all the amazing runners.
We also have some, to be completely frank, absolutely fab merchandise we are selling to fundraise. If you love Oor Wullie, know someone else who loves Oor Wullie, or just loves Scouting then this is for you. We have t-shirts, tote bags, buffs and above all badges, including our own unit badge and sets of all the Scottish unit badges heading with us to the jamboree.
We would love your support to get the most out of this truly amazing experience. One way you can do this is by becoming a Friend of the Jamboree. For a donation of £25 you will receive exclusive previews of all our unit newsletters and your own Kilted Krew unit badge with a purple border, which is the same we will wear on our uniforms and cannot be purchased.
