Jamboree-on-the-Internet Introduction

Scouting’s founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, saw the need, in 1920, for a gathering of representatives of Scouting from all around the world to hold a jamboree to promote and foster a worldwide brotherhood of Scouting. The Scouting movement successfully continues to have world and national jamborees every four years, alternating the events on two-year intervals. The jamboree energy fostering Scouting brotherhood is now accessible every year on the third weekend in October, with Jamboree-on-the-Internet.

Tell Me More

JOTI is an economical way of communicating around the world. The event allows Scouts to “meet” other Scouts from around the world through the Internet and share more information than just “Hi.” The exchanges can include such information as name, location of event, Scout rank, age, and hobbies. Some exchanges lead to long-lasting friendships. Another great idea is to incorporate JOTI participation to help fulfill a Citizenship in the World or Computers merit badge requirement!

When Is It?

JOTI will begin on Saturday, October 20, 2012, at 0000 hours local time, and will end on Sunday, October 21, 2012, at 2300 hours local time.
