The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held in July and August in West Virginia, the US. It is to be attended by 46,000 people from 164 countries around the world, with the Polish contingent represented by 450 scouts.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime, amazing event for scouts,” Ms Pospiszyl said. “Some scouts have worked for up to three years in order to save money for the jamboree.”

“Unfortunately, we will not have enough time to see and discover everything,” she added. “There are going to be 6,000 different activities at the Jamboree, it’s impossible to see all of them, one has to choose.”
