For decades, the annual Jamboree On The Air - Jamboree On The Internet (JOTA-JOTI) has brought together millions of Scouts around the world to connect through the internet and radio while building friendships, learning new skills, and discovering the international dimensions of Scouting.

This year has been about reconnection for many Scouts as we return to in-person events and activities. We learned how to connect better online, and JOTA-JOTI is an opportunity to combine the best of both worlds! Scouts are encouraged to get together in person with their groups, friends, or families, and connect with the world on our digital campsite.

All young people are welcome to participate in JOTA-JOTI and can register as individuals (13+) or as a group. You can find three tips to get started with registration, discovering activities, and building your own agenda for the weekend.
