The 2019 logo is a design born in Friendship and Unity. The colors of the flags of our three host countries are represented by the ribbons forming the globe. The ribbons are reaching out to symbolically embrace the World Scouting community and welcome you to North America.
This is will be the first multi-national hosted world jamboree with cooperation between Scouts Canada, Scouts Mexico and the Boy Scouts of America.

Most amateur radio event stations set themselves up to make as many contacts as possible. K2BSA is different as its primary goal is to introduce as many Scouts and Venturers to amateur radio as possible – and to run as many Radio merit badge classes as possible.
In this video, you can see a class in session and a Fox Hunt station. Fox Hunts are an electronic find me type of game. Low power transmitters hidden around the Jamboree are searched by youth participants with radio direction finding gear. The gear is similar to what wildlife scientists use to track animals released. It’s like geocaching / orienteering – an electronic hunt.
Finally you can see stations active and the antennae they use – all in a spot that offers a great view of the center of the Jamboree.
