Svojsík's Dream

The World Scout Jamboree was supossed to be held in 1933 in Prague, Czechoslovakia. Unfortunately, the organizers didn’t receive a state guarantee on time, and the jamboree took place in Gödöllö, Hungary. After hundred years we want to fulfil the dream of the founder of Czech scouting A. B. Svojsík.

We want the 27th World Scout Jamboree to take place in the Czech Republic in 2031. It is the best possible advertisement for our country and it is also the best possible celebration of the success of Czech Scouts and Guides. We would like to inspire thousands of young people from all around the world by Czech stories. This is the idea of a group of volunteers - we are talking about this idea across Junák - Czech scouting. The final decision on the possible candidacy will be made in spring 2020.

Project Timeline

Junák – Czech Scouting is steadily growing in the last decade. If the trend continues, we will have 100 000 members by the year 2031. We will have quality leaders and lots of enthusiastic members. As the number of member is growing, so is also our confidence. We are not afraid of big events and Junák - Czech Scouting is also entering the public life. In 2031 we will reach over 40 years of freedom. We are persuaded that the World Scout Jamboree in 2031 should be in the Czech Republic. 

Spring – Autumn 2017

Phase 0
How was it?

The 0 phase of the project was dedicated to mapping of the whole story of A.B.Svojsík (founder of Czech Scouting and his dream of having Jamboree in Prague in 1920s-1930s).

Autumn 2017 – Summer 2018

Phase 1
The future
starts now

The phase 1 of the project was dedicated to the first Project Management Educational Event. And discussions on the topic of the future of the Czech Republic and Scouting that were held in Prague, Brno, Pilsen, Ostrava, Olomouc and České Budějovice. The topic of the future was concluded at the final conference In Prague. There were additional articles and advertisements in scout magazines.

Summer 2018 – Autumn 2019

Phase 2
Let’s try to imagine

The main goal of the phase 2 will be writing of feasibility study. This step can dramatically change the project itself. At the same time we will focus on the Educational Event and its implementation to the official educational system. We will also participate on the preparations of a National Jamboree.

Autumn 2019 – Spring 2020

Phase 3
Lets see.

The goal of the third phase will be preparation of all needed materials for the National Scout Assembly in March 2020. The approval of the national assembly will be essential for the application for organisation of the 27th World Scout Jamboree.

In case the National Assembly will not confirm the application, we will need to revise and consider further steps. 

Spring 2020 – Summer 2023

Phase 4
Lets go!

The main goal of the phase 4 will be preparation of the documents needed for the official application for 27th World Scout Jamboree organisation. Phase 4 will be much more demanding. We expect few organizers to work full-time on the project. There will be a need of proper budgeting dedicated to the event, there will be more detailed project preparations based on WOSM requirements and worldwide promotion. 

Summer 2023 – Spring 2032

Phase 5
...will be in the Czech Republic

The goal of the Phase 5 is to organize the World Scout Jamboree in the Czech Republic. We should host over 40 000 young people from all around the world for 14 days and promote the Czech Republic.

In case we will be appointed as organizers of the event, we expect to organize a National Jamboree or European Jamboree in 2029.

  1. IT WILL NOT BE EASY – the idea of the world scout jamboree can be real. However, we know that the organization will not be easy.
  2. IT WILL COST A LOT OF MONEY – the budget of the world scout jamboree is usually around 1 billion Czech Crowns. 
  3. PROMOTION FOR JUNÁK AND CZECHIA – Junák – Czech Scouting will acquire reputation in the Czech republic together with contacts in commercial, public as well as non-profit sector. Due to the fundraising we will receive a lot of grants and other financial support that can be used for new scout houses or national campsite.
  4. THE WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE WILL BE BEST POSSIBLE PROMITON FOR THE CZECH REPUBLIC – and not just for the country. It will be also the best possible celebration of the Czech, Moravian and Silesian Scouting. Jamboree can inspire and show that we can really make the world a better place.
