Jamborees

A large gathering of Scouts who rally at a national or international level. The Cambridge dictionary defines "Jamboree" as a large social gathering. Baden-Powell was once asked why he chose "jamboree". He replied, "What else would you call it?", a response that makes sense if the word already means a boisterous gathering.
