The World Scout Moot 2022 is an international gathering of 18 to 26 year olds from around the world. Every four years, the Moot takes place in a different host country.   This time, 6000 people, 5000 participants and an International Service Team of 750 – 1000, are expected to attend.

Participants and IST

We know an important aspect of the postponement announcement for many was to confirm the age ranges for the event. Following consultation, the organisers have confirmed that participant age range has been extended to include those aged 18 – 26 years old on the first day of the Moot.

The following age ranges will now be applicable for the event:

Participants: Aged 18 to 26 on 18th July 2022
(Born between 19th July 1995 and 18th July 2004)

International Service Team: Aged 27 or over on 18th July 2022
(Born on or before 18th July 1995)


Patrols and Tribes

The theme for this Moot is Le Chéile (leh kay-la) which translates to ‘together’.  The programme will begin with an opening gathering in Dublin city centre. From there, International patrols will spend six days on trails around the Irish countryside.  Each trail has been carefully designed to provide opportunities for community interaction, cultural exploration, adventure activities and exposure to nature.  Patrols will then return to basecamp in Dublin for four days of activity and programme.  Base Camp will have a Global Development Village where various workshops will be hosted, a contingent village where you can learn about the different countries and cultures coming together at the Moot, a big central area for ceremonies and social events and various food houses where you can try local cuisine from around the world.

International Patrols of 10 participants will be formed before the event and they will have time to get to know each other via social media.  A tribe of 4 international patrols will travel together during the trails section and live together back at base camp.

The UK Contingent base fees are:

£995 per participant

£895 per International Service Team (IST) member


UK Contingent have reopened applications for a limited time. Whether you didn’t manage to submit an application first time round, can now attend due to the new dates in 2022 or have had a change in circumstances, we are delighted to be able to provide an opportunity to submit an application as either a Participant or IST member.

The second round of applications will then be entered along with the first round into the ballot which will be drawn using our Scouting Criteria. We then intend to confirm places no later than the end of October 2020.

All the information on submitting an application and more is available on our How to apply page. Applications close at midnight on Sunday 20th September, so don’t leave it too late!

A number of add on packages may also be available – you can add on travel, a pre-event programme in Belfast and/or post event programme in Dublin (participants only) and additional tours.

The UK Contingent are committed to reducing financial barriers as much as possible. As such, for the first time there is a grant application process alongside recruitment.

Places will be allocated via a ballot system. It is expected that there will be 500 UK Contingent participant places, plus IST.
