The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will be held in Sweden during the northern summer 2011. With over 30 000 Scouts from around the world, this will be the event of a lifetime.

22nd Jamboree Theme

The theme of the 22nd World Scout Jamboree is Simply Scouting.

Under this theme, we are going to focus on three key elements, that are:

  • Meetings
  • Nature
  • Solidarity

The aim is to give the participants an experience of simplicity when it comes to meetings between cultures and people, relations to nature and solidarity. It is easy to take actions that make a difference.

Jamboree Programme

The programme for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree will be rich and varied. Major elements that have been developed through previous World Scout Jamborees, including the Global Development Village and the Crossroads of Culture, will be there, as well as plenty of new activities from Sweden and other countries.

The day will be full of opportunities to meet and work with new acquaintances, and to work through preconceptions and increase understanding. We will open all the senses, and challenge limits that participants never even knew existed.

The programme will be a combination of pre-booked and join-in-activities. Spontaneous meetings often lead to new insights and lifelong friendships. During the jamboree there will be a few large events when all participants are gathered for memorable festivities.

The jamboree will gather people from all major beliefs; hence there will be plenty of opportunities both for individual reflections and meditations as well as joint religious services.
