BSA Contingent to
the 2021 World Scout Moot

Join the BSA Contingent to the 2021 World Scout Moot in Ireland!

The Boy Scouts of America has committed to support a national Contingent to the 2021 World Scout Moot in Ireland and more information will be available in Fall of 2019. The contingent will be open to young adults ages 18-25 (at the time of the event) as well as International Service Team (IST) members 26+. Right now we are working out the details and will be announcing those as soon as possible – we know that there are a lot of interested Scouts and Leaders.  

For any other questions, please email international@scouting.org 

What is a “Moot”?

Imagine a high-adventure World Scout Jamboree for young adult Scouts, but on a smaller scale. Learn new cultures and make lasting friendships while participating in a variety of activities designed by the host country. One thing that sets a Moot apart from a Jamboree is that the first half of the program takes place on the trail at sights all around the county and the second half is where all the participants come together in a jamboree-style gathering! The word moot is Old English and means “an assembly held for discussion.” That’s Moot—a once-in-a-lifetime World Scouting experience!

What can we expect from Ireland?

Opportunities to explore the country and explore your limits.  Expect to see beyond the tourist experience and get to grips with real Ireland.  Learn their journey to peace and reconciliation.  Discover the myths and legends of Ireland and challenge yourself in the outdoors.

The 16th World Scout Moot will take place in Ireland from 19th – 29th  July 2021. The entry point to the Moot will be Dublin City. International Patrols will then explore the many wonders of Ireland on a collection of exciting and interesting trails in local countryside. The Patrols will then return to Dublin for the base camp feature of the Moot before returning home.

Invitations and communications to International Commissioners have already begun. Participation is via a National contingent and all bookings are done through the NSO and appointed contingent leader. The cost of the Moot will be confirmed shortly by the World Scout Committee but will be in line with the last Moot in Iceland and the World Scout Jamboree in USA. Ireland is easily accessible via direct flights to Ireland or via major European hub airports. The Moot planning team will also include a pre-moot and post-moot support team for those participants who wish to spend a longer period in Ireland. Pre and post Moot programme will be an additional cost to the Moot fee.

The 2021 World Scout Moot is an official event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), hosted and organized by Scouting Ireland, for young people from ages 18 through 25. Make plans to join 5,000 participants and 1,000 IST (staff) from 80 countries around the world at the Moot. Check out the official Moot website, which offers the most current information.
