2023 National Jamboree July 19-28, 2023

Posted on Nov 10 2022 - 3:48pm

2023 National Jamboree registration is now open for scouts.  You can discover all the details and register your scout  here.   This is not a troop event .  The event is held at Summit Bechtel Reserve located in West Virginia.

Jamboree is more than a destination. It’s the adventure of lifetime. And there is simply nothing else like it on the planet.

What’s a Jamboree? It’s not camp. National Jamboree is 360-degrees of fun, friends and fellowship with hands-on adventure that takes you places you never thought you’d go and challenge you to try things you never thought you could.

It’s the beginning of your own heroes’ journey that will challenge you to go farther than you ever thought possible. You’ll reach deeper and lift yourself higher to become the best version of yourself.
