Bidding for the 26th World Scout Jamboree (2027)

The World Scout Jamboree takes place every four years in a different country. It is the largest regular event organised by WOSM, usually gathering up to 40,000 people from all over the world. It is above all an educational event to promote peace and understanding. The World Scout Jamboree includes a wide variety of activities to develop new skills, learn about different cultures, and build friendships through unique camping experience. Participants must be between the ages of 14 and 17 at the time of the event. Individuals who are 18 years or older can take part as International Service Team members.

Motivational statement

We want to host the Jamboree because we want to inspire Scouts to bravely take care of our joint future, our planet, and also ourselves. Now is the time for all young people to be the change, take the initiative and bravely take steps forward. We want to encourage them to walk away from the usual and comfortable path and engage in important discussions. We envision our Jamboree experience to be inspiring but also supporting young people in finding the right self-balance.

The organisation of such a large project as the Jamboree is a great honour but also a real challenge. It is a unique opportunity for development both for Związek Harcerstwa Polskiego as an organisation and for all members.
The most important thing for us is to do the Jamboree as an inspiration for Scouts, a source of ideas and motivation for further action. The Jamboree will be a unique adventure for each participant, a place to exchange experiences and a chance to make friends for life.

We want to show the strength and unity of the entire Scout Movement while emphasising the uniqueness of each of us through getting to know other cultures. Our Jamboree will be the place for all Scouts to grow together, as individuals, as a generation, and as a Movement.
