Participation is open to eligible youth (age 14 – 17), unit leaders (18 and older) and International Service Teams (IST) who serve as Jamboree Staff (18 and older).

The focus is on meeting people from different cultures and countries and doing jamboree and high adventure activities. You will have plenty of opportunities to zip-line, kayak, and ride mountain bikes, and even more opportunities to meet new friends and learn what Scouting and life is like in other countries.

WSJ Contingent Leaders have been selected!
For the first time in recent times, two members of TAC have been selected to serve as contingent leaders for the World Scout Jamboree!!! Congratulations to Mattie Coolen for being selected as Scoutmaster, and Dean Menegas for being selected as Assistant Scoutmaster for the combined unit from TAC and Monmouth attending the World Scout Jamboree. We believe these two youth leaders have a wealth of experience and a great attitude that will be an asset to the 2019 WSJ!
