Jamboree on the Air and on the Internet
Connect to Scouts around the world during Jamboree-on-the-Air, Jamboree-on-the-Internet
Scouts can participate in two other large Scouting events: the Jamboree-on-the-Air and Jamboree-on-the-Internet. This year’s digital and amateur radio events are slated for Oct. 14-16. That’s when more than 2 million Scouts from more than 170 countries will connect with other Scouts, locally, nationally or globally by logging online or turning on a ham radio. You can register here.
For the Jamboree-on-the-Internet, all you need is an Internet-enabled device, like a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. If you have a ham radio, you should be good for the Jamboree-on-the-Air, too. However, many Scouts opt to visit a local amateur radio operator’s ham shack or a ham shack at a council camp.
