The 60th anniversary of Hong Kong Scouting was celebrated by the Diamond Jubilee jamboree held between 22 and 28 July 1971 at the Castle Peak with the theme World Harmony. This jamboree was attended by more than 5,000 Scouts.[19] Immediately following, the 2nd World Scout Public Relations Seminar, and the 5th Commonwealth Scout Conference were held in Hong Kong.
The British contingent to the 14th World Scout Jamboree, led by Robert Baden-Powell, 3rd Baron Baden-Powell, included Scouts from Branches in Bermuda, Hong Kong and Rhodesia.
Hong Kong also hosted the 11th Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Conference with the theme Scouting for the 80's in 1978. It was attended by over 300 delegates and observers from nineteen countries. In 1980, the Administration Conference for Commissioners was held. The Scout Association of Hong Kong has organised activities to echo the International Youth Year in 1985.[20] For these achievements in community development, the association received the Award for An Outstanding Year-long International Youth Year Programme at the 30th World Scout Conference held in Munich, Germany in July 1985. The Hong Kong Diamond Jubilee Jamboree was held at the Kohima Camp (now Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) from 27 December 1986 till 1 January 1987 with the theme March On.
In the early 1990s, the Chief Commissioner Chau Cham-son brought the association into a new era by having planned and completed in 1994 the 25-story Hong Kong Scout Centre, providing the association with a meaningful foundation for its development to be financially self-sufficient. The year 1996 marked the 85th anniversary of the Scout Movement in Hong Kong. The Scout Association of Hong Kong made use of the opportunity to raise more than one million dollars to provide assistance to youth members to attend World Scout Jamborees. The 19th Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Conference with the theme Scouting Beyond 2000 was successfully held in 1998 at the Hong Kong Scout Centre. This was the first Scout Conference held completely on Scout premises.[21]
His Majesty the King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf, Honorary President of the World Scout Foundation paid a private visit to Hong Kong for the 45th Baden-Powell World Fellowship Event hosted by the Scout Association of Hong Kong from 26 to 28 April 2002 at the Hong Kong Scout Centre. The event raised US$385,000 for the World Scout Foundation.[22]
