World Scout Moot


World Scout Moot

The World Scout Moot is a gathering of older Scouts, mainly Rover Scouts, ages 18-26 (although there was no upper age limit for the earlier Moots) from all over the world. Moots are held every four years and are organized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM).

The original name was "World Rover Moot", which was later changed to "World Moot" (because the term "Rover" was less and less used) and later to "World Scout Moot".

The World Scout Jamboree is a similar event, also organized by the WOSM, for Scouts aged 14-17.

The next World Scout Moot was due to be held in Mozambique in 2008, but now it will be held in Kenya in 2010.
