Boy Scouts leadership has mandated a disturbing requirement for its World Jamboree event next year.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held in West Virginia next summer and it seems the World Scout Committee is requiring that condoms be “readily and easily accessible” at the event, according to the Florida Family Policy Council.
The World Organization of the Scout Movement released its health and safety guidelines which require that host organizations, including Scouts BSA – formerly the Boy Scouts of America, “ensure that condoms are readily and easily accessible for all participants and [International Service Team] at a number of locations on the site.”
But that’s not all.
According to the Florida Family Policy Council:
Stunningly, the World Jamboree Guideline 7.3 also has “exceptions,” allowances and instructions for the consumption of alcohol in “confined areas” at the 12-day camping event. (It appears the Jamboree guidelines were drafted after the 2015 World Jamboree in Japan in preparation for the 2019 event and were just recently released in an email.)
Billed as “a celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship,” according to an announcement on the event’s page, the jamboree will be hosted by three national Scout organizations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America.
The “Unlock a New World” theme for the jamboree “speaks to the new adventures, cultures, and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world during the event,” the statement added.
“More than 160 national scout organizations representing more than 200 nations and territories are expected to participate in this massive West Virginia 12-day camping event, which based on recent membership policy changes should include openly-gay boys, openly-gay adult scout leaders, transgendered boys and adults and now also girls,” the Florida Family Policy Council stated.
The organization has faced criticism, most recently over the name change from “Boy Scouts of America” to simply “Scouts BSA” in order to accommodate girls who are joining. And after more than century-long relationship, the Mormon Church severed ties with the organization as their values seemed to continue to diverge.
“In light of the mandatory condom policy, it is not clear how far down the rabbit hole the Boy Scouts will continue to fall,” John Stemberger, Florida Family Policy Council president, said in a statement.
“With the addition of condoms and alcohol, the World Jamboree is starting to sound more like a 1960s Woodstock festival rather than a campout that parents would want to send their children to!” he added.
“All of this should be deeply disturbing to the churches that are chartering Boy Scout Troops. These policies present a clear youth protection problem that the BSA absolutely refuses to recognize. The fact that they are requiring that condoms be ‘readily accessible’ and are communicating this to everyone– including youth participants–shows that the BSA is both anticipating and facilitating sexual conduct between minors at this event,” Stemberger said. “These policies are both outrageous and completely irresponsible.”
