JOTI fun begins in Mason City, Iowa

Jamboree On The Internet is the largest Scouting Event in the world!

This event runs in parallel with the Jamboree on the Air Site that is being hosted locally by Northland Amateur Communications Group.

We are trying to work on Extra Computers to set up a special “computer lab” on site… However this has not yet been established. so as on now:

Scouts / units must provide their own Laptops / Ipads / Tablets / Smart Phones to participate. Internet service, and a safe Indoor and Outdoor space will be provided.


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. This event is an adjunct to the World Scout Jamboree.

When is it?

Jamboree on the Internet is held annually the third full weekend in October.

October 15-17, 2021

October 14-16, 2022
October 20-22, 2023

Jamboree-on-the-Internet starts Friday and ends Sunday, but there are no official hours of operation, so you have the whole weekend to make
JOTI contacts.

Tell Me More

Scouts must be at least 13 yrs of age or older to participate in JOTI.
For participants under 13 years old, a parent or guardian must participate with them for the duration of the event.
Scouts can participate at JOTA/JOTI sites such as ours, or at home with the help of an adult. JOTI is an economical way to participate in an international jamboree. The event allows Scouts to “meet” other Scouts from around the world through the Internet and share more information than just “Hi.” The exchanges can include such information as name, location of event, Scout rank, age, and hobbies. Some exchanges lead to long-lasting friendships. JOTI participation fulfills requirements for Tiger and Arrow of Light adventures, the Citizenship in the World merit badge, and the International Spirit Award.
The World Scout Bureau reported that the 2017 JOTA-JOTI had over 1.5 million Scout participants from more than 160 countries.
