Success on the Path: Start Planning Your Next International Adventure!

For many Scouting youth, a distant adventure to a major event is often a major highlight of their time in a Section. In recent years, thousands have enjoyed amazing Scouting experiences far from home—thanks especially to the 2017 Canadian Jamboree at Camp Nedooae in Nova Scotia and last summer’s Pacific Jamboree at Camp Barnard in British Columbia.

What epic Scouting adventure can your Section look forward to next? Look beyond our borders, and you’ll find your Section is spoiled for choice! There are heaps of international adventures to choose from over the next few years. We’ve collected many of them on the International Events page. Here’s just a taste of the events listed:

Join In Jamboree – Oshawa, Canada: July 31-August 3, 2020
