We are excited to announce the launch of the Australian Contingent to the 25th World Scout Jamboree to be held in South Korea in August 2023.
The Executive for the Contingent has been appointed and they are now seeking excited, dedicated young (and some not so young) experts to fill positions on the Contingent Management Team, so if you are as excited as they are about building a life-changing experience for the Scouts attending the World Scout Jamboree then have a look here at all the positions that are available.
The World Scout Jamboree is a World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) event, typically attended by several tens of thousands of Scouts from around the world aged 14 to 17. It takes place roughly every 4 years and is hosted by a different country each time. The last World Scout Jamboree was held in at The Summit Bechtel Reserve located in West Virginia, USA. Over 40,000 Scouts from all around the world joined together at WSJ2019 experiencing different cultures and making lots of new friends. You may have been camped next to a troop speaking a different language but the language of Scouting is the same the world over.
The next World Scout Jamboree will take place from 1 to 12 August in 2023 in Saemangeum, Jeollabuk-do Province in South Korea. SaeManGeum (Ariul), “Land of Opportunities and Hope” is a transformation of two estuaries into a spacious recreational ground (10,000,000㎡), this will become the venue where Scouts from around the world to pursue their dreams throughout the World Scout Jamboree. The theme of the Jamboree is “Draw Your Dream” which expresses the desire of Scouts to transform the World Scout Jamboree into their own festival and to grow their dreams through it. You can find out more about the event on the host country’s website.
