2nd Worldjamboree 1924






5000 Scouts
34 Countries






August 10 - 23





This was, looking at the number of participants (5000 scouts from 34 countries), the smallest from all Jamborees held until now. One of the reasons was the Imperial Jamboree, which was held a week before in London. New at this Jamboree was home hospitality. After the Jamboree scouts stayed in a host-family. Problems during this Jamboree were the enormous amount of visitors and a flood. 5000 Scouts were housed at the locals. In the Stadium of Copenhagen different games, invented by Baden Powell, were organised. This Jamboree showed that Scouting isnít just a game, but it is a crucial contribution to the forming of world citizens.
