Jamboree On The Trail is an annual day for the World Scout Movement to hike together. All Scouts, whatever their age and wherever they may be in the world, are invited to participate in whatever way they can. Beaver Scouts could visit a local park, walking the trails and playing games. Cub Scouts could visit a local nature trail as part of a weekend camp. A Scout Troop might check out a hiking trail while working on badge requirements. An Explorer Unit might make a Service Project out of restoring or maintaining a hiking trail. In their own way, everyone will be hiking the same direction; towards a better future through Scouting.
JOTT is held on the second Saturday of May each year.
There are only 212 days remaining until JOTT 2018!
The details of your JOTT event are up to you, who, where, what time and what doing are all decisions that are made locally. All we ask is that you participate on the second Saturday in May, give some consideration to the worldwide aspect of the Scout family and to working toward a better future through Scouting.

Yes, JOTT is worldwide. The idea was birthed by a Canadian Scout Troop in 1997 and the first worldwide hike held the year after and every year since. Click here to read about the history of the event.
