Jamboree On The Trail is an annual day for the World Scout Movement to hike together. All Scouts, whatever their age and wherever they may be in the world, are invited to participate in whatever way they can. Cubs and younger Scouts could visit a local nature trail as part of a weekend camp. A Scout Troop might check out a hiking trail while working on rank requirements. A Rover Crew might make a Service Project out of restoring or maintaining a hiking trail. In their own way, everyone is hiking the same direction: towards a better future through Scouting. JOTT is held on the second Saturday of May each year.

JOTT follows the idea of Join-in events in a World Jamboree year. Jamboree on the Trail is simply a coordinated event where Scouts around the world simultaneously participate in local hikes. This type of event allows Scouts to take part in activities at the same time as other Scouts, promoting the idea of Scouting brotherhood. Participants are awarded a JOTT badge as a recognition of having participated in the worldwide event.
