YOUR TROOP OR CREW CAN PARTICIPATE IN A JAMBOREE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY

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.  Below is a list of 2020 jamborees in Austria, Belgium, Canada, England (4), The Netherlands, Scotland, and Trinidad and Tobago, 2021 jamborees in Australia, England (2), Norway, Northern Ireland, and Sweden, and 2022 jamborees in Denmark and New Zealand that are open to contingents from individual BSA troops and crews with links to the jamboree web sites..  More jamborees will be announced soon.  This list is updated regularly.  The Michigan Crossroads Council International Scouting Committee would be glad to help you in your planning.  Link here for the October 2, 2019 updated version of Michigan Crossroads Council SUGGESTIONS FOR TRAVELING OVERSEAS WITH SCOUTS AND VENTURERS.  There are special rules for travel to Canada that reduce the cost compared to travel to other countries.  To learn about those rules, link here.

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.
