Burundi to Host the 9th Africa Scout Jamboree in 2024

Congratulations to Association des Scouts du Burundi, on their successful bid to host the 9th Africa Scout Jamboree in 2024. Association des Scouts du Burundi were appointed the Host of the 2024 Jamboree by the 18th Africa Scout Conference following a vote taken in plenary by Member Organizations.

Regional Scout Events such as the Jamboree are high-profile opportunities to bring our Movement together in a unique educational environment where young people and volunteers can participate in Scouting activities, develop new skills, build friendships, and learn about different cultures.

The Africa Scout Jamboree takes place every four years in a different country and is the largest outdoor educational event for young people organised by the Africa Scout Region in partnership with national Hosts. Jamborees can gather thousands of young people from all over the region and beyond and are aimed at promoting peace and understanding. Participants must be between the ages of 14 and 17 at the time of the event. Individuals who are older than 18 years of age can take part as volunteer International Service Team members.

Association des Scouts du Burundi will also host the Africa Scout Day celebrations in March 2024
