Once there we will be joining more than 40,000 Scouts from all over the world.

To be eligible to attend in 2023, young people will need to be aged between 14 and 17 at the time of the Jamboree in August 2023 (hence to the dates above). This means that we are looking for both "older" Scouts and "younger" Explorers to apply.
