Next year will be the 22nd World Scout Jamboree and will be held in Rinkaby, Sweden.
But, do you know where the 23rd and 24th Jambos will be held?
In 2015, the 23rd World Scout Jamboree is scheduled for Kirarahama, Japan.
In 2019, the 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held at The Summit
in West Virginia - BSA's new high adventure base. This was announced by Tico Perez recently, not just that it was being worked on, but that it would happen. Of course, things can change.
Since 2019 is nine years away current Bear, Wolf, and Tiger Cubs are the most probable participants. It's not too early to have a Scoutmaster talk about this global event at one of your year-end Pack meetings and have scouts start saving their nickels and quarters. It's a great far-distant goal that will creep closer while keeping young scouts motivated to progress. A tiger den that makes a pact to attend the World Jambo together nine years from now - wouldn't that be cool?

I found a link to an article from last November, but it was only speculative at that point: http://www.montgomery-herald.com/local/x546257672/Boy-Scouts-announcement-unbelievable-partnership
I'd also love a link to Tico's announcement. :)
