What is a World Scout Jamboree?

A World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is a gathering of Scouts internationally to promote friendship, peace, and to help young Scouts in the movement learn about other nations by direct interaction.

The event is for Scouts aged between 14 and 18, and happens every 4 years. I was fortunate enough to be a participant at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan. You can read about my experience here.

For the 24th WSJ in USA, I have been fortunate enough to be selected as part of the International Service Team (IST), who help to make the event run (almost as staff). For this WSJ, I will be part of the Jamboree Shows Team as a clarinettist in the Jamboree Band!
