What is a Jamboree?

A Jamboree is the quintessence of the Scouting Movement concentrated into a single event. It is the place where Scouts from all around the country, region or world gather to celebrate the principles and values of Scouting, to meet and get to know and understand each other, to put into practice what they have learned as Scouts.

Because technology and the environment we live in are continuously evolving, we also have to constantly adapt to new conditions. That is why, in order to be prepared for new challenges, it is necessary to learn how to think critically, to think in perspective, to develop connections or how to implement self-directed education. Through this program, over 1000 children and youth with ages ranging from 11 to 24 years old, from all around the country, will be better prepared for the future at a personal, social and spiritual level. By involving themselves in their local communities, they will soon after implement realistic solutions for Romania’s sustainable development.
