3rd Interamerican Scout Moot in Peru
July 27-August 5, 2018
The III Interamerican Scout Moot will be held in Cusco, Peru from July 27 to August 5, 2018. It is an official event of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), hosted and organized by the Scout Association of Peru, for young people ages 18 to 25. There are many international Scouting events each year, with more than 160 member organizations in the WOSM. These events provide a fantastic opportunity for BSA members to connect with the world, to make new friendships as part of their Scouting adventure, and to learn about other countries, people, and cultures.
The Moot will be a privileged space for the exchange of intercultural experiences between participants and members of the community, offering the opportunity to develop collective projects, all participating in Creating a Better World. Activities will include the following three modules: Adventure, Toursim & Scouts of the World.
Along with experiencing the 3rd Interamerican MOOT, the BSA contingent trip will also include an optional day trip to the historic Inca ruins of Manchu Picchu for participants* only! This experience will be in addition to the overall MOOT experience and will take place August 5th and 6th. To join the BSA contingent at the Interamerican Scout Moot as a participant, you must be a registered member of the BSA and age 18 to 25. Members who are over 25, can join the Moot´s International Service Team (IST).
*Please be aware that due to its mountainside location and endless Inca stairways, getting around Machu Picchu may be a challenge for those visitors using a wheelchair or with restricted walking/mobility abilities. Unfortunately, wheelchair accessibility is very limited. There will also be limited view points over Machu Picchu without the ability to traverse steps.

What’s 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. The word moot is Old English and means “an assembly held for discussion.” That’s Moot—a once-in-a-lifetime World Scouting experience!
