2020 AND 2021 JAMBOREES IN OTHER COUNTRIES

The jamboree fee for a jamboree in another country is low enough that, even adding airfare, the total cost per person of an overseas trip is similar to the cost of participating in the BSA National Jamboree or a Philmont trip.  You can often arrange to pair with a Scout group from the host country that is participating in the jamboree, share a campsite with them, and borrow group equipment such as tents from them.  Many of these jamborees have age ranges for youth participants similar to BSA National Jamborees and are a week to a week and a half long, which allows you to include time on your trip sightseeing or being hosted by local Scouts. The winter of 2019 is a good time to start thinking about a 2020 trip.  Below is a list of 2020 jamborees in Austria, Belgium, and England (4), and 2021 jamborees in England (2) and Sweden that are open to contingents from individual BSA troops and crews with links to the jamboree web sites..  More 2020 and 2021 jamborees will be announced soon.  The Michigan Crossroads Council International Scouting Committee would be glad to help you in your planning.  Link here for the Michigan Crossroads Council SUGGESTIONS FOR TRAVELING OVERSEAS WITH SCOUTS AND VENTURERS. 

To learn about being part of a National BSA contingent to a jamboree in another country, go to https://www.scouting.org/international/bsa-contingent/ and read the section "Upcoming International and Regional Events With BSA Contingents."  These BSA contingents are open to Scouts and Venturers who will be 15 to 17 years old at the time of the jamboree.
