JOTA-JOTI is the world’s largest digital Scout event taking place online and over the air. It unites more than 2 million Scouts from over 171 countries every year for a weekend of Scouting and friendship. This year JOTA-JOTI will take place from 15 to 17 October.

Due to Covid restrictions we encourage SSA members to participate in JOTI from home, or in Patrols at a central location – SSA Covid regulations observed.  All you will need is internet access, IRC chat, Skype, and the willingness to speak and learn from others.
