Due to various circumstances some youth members of the USA Contingent have made the decision to cancel their participation in the world jamboree. There are now four openings and those interested in applying for the waitlist for one of these four positions are encouraged to register at https://events.scouting.org
Youth Participants must be at least age 14 by the first day of the Jamboree, August 1, 2023 and
have not turned age 18 by the last day of the jamboree, August 12, 2023. Spaces will not be filled on a First Come, First Served basis. Instead spaces will be filled from the waiting list according to available spaces in units. It is possible that travel to a departure airport will be required.
Those who wish to join the waiting list will be asked to pay a $4234.00 deposit. This will bring them up to the current amount due for all participants. A final payment of $1867.00 will be due on or before April 30, 2023 to account for the $6100.00 fee. Any not selected will receive a full refund.
To register go to events.scouting.org and be sure you are logged into my scouting using the youth’s account for whom you will be registering.
Please know the goal is to fill every possible available space and ensure that as many as possible who desire to go to this once-in-a-lifetime event have the opportunity to do so.
