(Cockrell Scout Center)

Jamboree-on-the-Internet (JOTI) is an annual Scouting event sponsored by the World Organization of the Scout Movement. Scouts of any age can stop by the Cockrell Scout Center  and talk to Scouts around the world by computer and amateur radio.  Last year, JOTI had almost 16,000 Scouts and leaders registered from 146 countries! Registration is not required. We will have some shared computers available, or we can show you how to use your laptop or mobile device to connect to Scoutlink.net. Sessions are typically about 20 to 30 minutes. 

JOTI @ SHAC is an opportunity for Scouts to talk or email other Scouts all over the world.

Scouts of all ages are invited to participate. Registration is not required. We will have some shared computers available, or we can show you how to use your laptop or mobile device to connect to Scoutlink.net.

The Jamboree-on-the-Internet, or JOTI, is an annual Scouting event sponsored by the World Organization of the Scout Movement and is held the 3rd weekend of October. This event utilizes the internet and the numerous devices that are used to get online, from your home computer to iPad tablets, to link Scouts from around the world. Last year, JOTI had almost 16,000 Scouts and leaders registered in the worldwide Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) - Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI) database in 146 countries!

Scouts of any age can take part, from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts and Venturers. Scouts can participate at home with the help of an adult, or they can participate in a Scout group at a council-wide event. JOTI is an economical way of communicating around the world. 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 the event, Scout rank, age, and hobbies. Some exchanges lead to long-lasting friendships. Another great idea is to use JOTI participation to help fulfill a Citizenship in the World or Computers merit badge requirement!
