Jamboree Lithuania 2018

  • September 26, 2018

Lithuanian scouts marked the middle of their Scouting history by organizing the biggest scout event in the Baltic region. The centenary Jamboree named “Generations of Campfire” took place in Rumšiškės, one of the biggest open air museums in Europe, from 14th to 22nd of July, 2018. This is the second time in history, since the restoration of independence of Lithuania, that all Scouting organizations get together to make such a big event come true. Thus it wasn’t a surprise that over 3300 participants and volunteers showed up to attend such an important moment not only to Lithuanian scouts, but to Lithuania as well. Scouts from 22 countries were present, making up a total amount of more than 500 people. Though majority of the guests came in from European countries, there was a significant number of people from outside Europe as well, including Egypt, Israel, Costa Rica, United States of America and Australia.
