The World Scout Jamboree is the largest scouting event organised by the Scout Movement, gathering up to 50,000 people from all over the world. It is above all an educational event to promote peace and understanding. The World Scout Jamboree includes a wide variety of activities and also places great importance on the everyday life and interaction on the campsite. The World Scout Jamboree takes place every four years in a different country.


Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout Movement, invited young people from all over the World and wanted them to exchange cultures and enjoy adventure. It was in 1920 that the first World Scout Jamboree was realized, held in the Olympia halls in Kensington, London. 

In 1991, the 17th World Scout Jamboree was successfully held in 1991 in Goseong, Gangwon-do with 19,093 participants from 135 countries under the theme of “Many Lands, One World.”


“Draw your Dream!” expresses the desire of the members of the Scout Movement to transform the 25th World Scout Jamboree into their own festival and to grow their dreams through the event. SaeManGeum will be shaped into a spacious recreational ground, giving young Scouts from around the world an opportunity to purse their hopes and dreams throughout the Jamboree.

The logo for the 25th World Scout Jamboree symbolises the gathering of scouts from around the world who will come together under one tent in Korea to enjoy the jamboree experience. The logo is designed in the shape of traditional Korean tiled roof(Giwa-jibung) and tents, and embodies the spirits of joyful festivals that take place in Korea.


Scouting for Life

Many of the programme features will engage young people in developing leadership and life skills through Scouting activities, and will challenge participants to learn about global issues and becoming active citizens. These programme elements will incorporate Scouting’s values and methods, as well as ideas around global citizenship education and education for sustainable development. 


Together with global, regional and national partners, the Jamboree programme will be comprised of activities that engage young people in learning about the Sustainable Development Goals and taking action for peace and sustainable development in their communities. Through the Better World Tent and Global Development Village, Scouts will learn how to connect with nature, create a culture of peace and dialogue, promote diversity and inclusion, and more. 

Smart and Scientific

The Jamboree programme will use the latest technology to enable participants and contingents to connect, stay up-to-date with information, and take part in variety of activities through the official Jamboree app. Participants will be able to experience the future through everything from robot technology to virtual reality. A specific stream of the programme will focus on STEAM skills, offering young people the chance to join in activities and learn about the fields of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics

ACT: Adventure, Culture, tradition

The Jamboree programme will offer various adventure activities that use the environment around SaeManGeum, including the mountains, rivers and seas to enable Scouts to connect with and discover nature. The event will also engage participants in cross-cultural exchange to experience the best of Korean culture and tradition from K-pop music to Bibimbap food to the Hangul alphabet, and much more. 

Safe & Secure

The Jamboree programme will be designed to prevent and respond to communicable diseases, natural disasters, and other emergencies, while providing safety education programmes developed by Korea Scout Association. The “Disaster Safety Programme” will not only improve the safety response ability of participants, but will also help them grow into citizens who can act as responders in the case of emergencies. 

Various Award Programmes

Award programmes such as the Hwarang Awards, Clean Awards and Friendship Awards will motivate participants to participate in a variety of course activities at the Jamboree.
