25th World Scout Jamboree

Think big. Dream wild. Act together

In Summer 2023, more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world will gather in Korea for the 25 World Scout Jamboree. We're so proud that thousands of UK young people aged 14 to 17 and their leaders will be there, we'll call ourselves the UK Contingent.

Our Contingent are more than just travel buddies, they are planners, fundraisers, motivators and mentors. We've got a lot to achieve in a short time but we'll leap at the challenge as we"¦ Think big. Dream wild. Act Together.

We don't just dream. We act.

We dream about a sustainable world, where everyone's welcome. But we're not just about dreaming, Scouts want to see action too. Our UK Contingent won't silently creep round global issues, we'll be trailblazers for getting young voices heard"¦ You're gonna hear us roar.

We know that dreams come true when we work together.
