Actually, "summer" is the rainy season in Thailand, so this
Jamboree will again be in December-January. The dates are
December 28, 2002 through January 8, 2003.
This will be the 20th World Scout Jamboree, and the theme is
"Share our World, Share our Cultures."
Applications from the BSA probably won't become available until
shortly after next year's national jamboree, although there will
probably be a booth at NJ2001 with information. The Jamboree
Division handles both national and world, and they are currently
focused on our national right now.
For general information, there is now a website for the WJ; the

That sounds about right. The last WJ in Chile was in the $4000-
5000 range; this is will involve a longer plane ride to a more
"remote" part of the world.
