In 1916, Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting movement, knew what success looked like for the 10th anniversary of Scouting. It was the sight of thousands of youth gathered together to celebrate. The jamboree was born! In his words, "The secret of [Scouting's] growth lies in that indeterminate force which we only know as the 'Scout Spirit' and grow it has!"
