Oct 15: Jamboree on the Internet

What Is Jamboree-on-the-Internet?

Jamboree-on-the-Internet, or JOTI, is an annual international Scouting event sponsored by the World Organization of the Scout Movement. Each year, during the third weekend in October, Scouts from around the world gather online to learn about other cultures and the activities in which other Scouts participate. They communicate with each other using Internet-enabled devices such as computers, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. Last year, JOTI had nearly 16,000 Scouts and leaders from 146 countries registered in the worldwide JOTA-JOTI database!
