International Events

This is where it all starts. Members of Scouting from around the world get together for Camporees, Jamboree, and Moots. These events are the perfect opportunity to meet others and learn about the world of Scouting. By participating in an international event, you’ll have the opportunity to get out and encounter the entire world all at once.

International Events FAQ

There are so many different kinds of international events, it’s amazing. They include world level events set by the World Organization of the Scout Movement, like World Scout Jamborees or World Scout Moots. They could be regional events like the Interamerican Scout Moot, or national events that invite international groups, like the Blair Atholl Jamborette in Scotland or the Australian Rover Moot. The world is constantly coming together for international events!

Depending on the event, you will be able to either sign up as a group, or as an individual. When you register for an event as a group, it makes it much easier to plan and fundraise. When you register as an individual participant, there would have to already be a Scouts Canada Contingent attending the event that you could join.

There are a couple of ways. On the International Events page, we’ve listed events that already have a Scouts Canada Contingent set up. You could also email intl@scouts.ca to find out more information about an event that you’re interested in. When there is already a contingent, there is already a Contingent Leader, who will be able to provide more information to you, and help you register for the event.

Yes! Scouts Canada has a long history of providing volunteers and support to international events in the form of International Service Team (IST) members. To run smoothly, international events require an army of volunteers, with all sorts of different backgrounds and specialties

The participation or IST registration costs vary depending on the event and the country that is hosting it. As an example, the previous two World Scout Jamborees cost $4,560 and $4,400 in the U.K and Sweden respectively. This included airfare and pre-jamboree gatherings.

Not at this time, but there are countless opportunities to fundraise to help offset costs.

The first step is contacting the International Committee at intl@scouts.ca. We can verify that any event you’re interested in is authorized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement. This way too, we can help you register your group or yourself for the event!
