What is VOA Lockin? The lock-in is an event where scouts of all ages meet in an isolated area such as gymnasium, meeting hall, recreational building, etc. and interact all night with other scouts.  This is meant to be a bonding moment in which scouts get to know other scouts and play games, sports, watch movies, have a fun evening.

On the second Saturday each May since 1998, all those in the World Scout Movement have been invited to hike together. In their own way, all Scouts – whatever their age, wherever they may be, in whatever way they can – will be hiking the same direction; towards a better future through Scouting.

There is no cost to participate in this international event. Commemorative 2020 JOTT patches will be $4 each. Proceeds of the patch sale support the work of the Northeast Georgia Council International Committee.
