Together we’ll journey into tomorrow for the experience of a lifetime that will include a fantastic Pre-Jamboree stop in Hong Kong beginning July 24, 2015. From there, we’ll head to Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan on July 28, 2015 for 11 days of incredible programming and life-changing cultural adventure.

Registration is now open at the Scouts Canada website. By registering and authorizing your Pre-Authorized Payment by December 15th you can take advantage of the $250 Early Bird Discount. You can find more information on payment details at http://scouts.ca/japan2015/fee.php

The cost of participating in the World Jamboree is $5,995.00 plus $400.00 more if your participate in the Home Hospitality program. To be eligible to attend as a participant, you must be born between July 28, 1997 and July 27, 2001.
