In Scouting, a jamboree is a large gathering of Scouts who rally at a national or international level.

The 1st World Scout Jamboree was held in 1920, and was hosted by the United Kingdom. Since then, there have been twenty three World Scout Jamborees, hosted in various countries, generally every four years. The 24th World Jamboree is to be held in North America in 2019.The next World Scout Jamboree will be in United States from 22 July 2019 - 2 August 2019.

The name "Jamboree" is derived from the Swahili for hello, Jambo!, as a result of the considerable amount of time Baden-Powell spent in the East African region.
