The 10th World Scout Jamboree was held 17–26 July 1959 and was hosted by the Philippines at Mount Makiling, Los Baños, Laguna. Dubbed "The Bamboo Jamboree" due to the prevalence of bamboo and nipa palm. There were a total 12,203 Scouts from 44 countries. The theme was "Building Tomorrow Today". It was the first World Scout Jamboree to be held outside Europe and Canada.
From every clime and region, we crossed mount, vale, and sea
We're in the Philippines now for our World Jamboree.
Here East and West are meeting, as Heaven so decrees
We live and work and play in true fellowship and peace.
Mabuhay to all Scouts who are here
Let the message of BP now resound loud, long, and clear.
I am your brother and friend, so take my hand
For God and Country, Mankind and Scouting
We shall stand, forever stand.
