National Jamboree

ADVENTURERS WANTED!

Get ready! The National Scout Jamboree is coming and it ain't your father's jamboree. We're talking seriously high adventure, people! Whitewater rafting, zip-lining, rappelling, mountain biking, hiking, and more - with 50,000 of your closest friends at the brand new Summit Bechtel Reserve in the wilds of West Virginia.



SCOUT PARTICIPANT QUALIFICATIONS

Scouts and team members must have a current BSA membership with a Boy Scout troop or Varsity Scout team.

  1. 1. Must have a current BSA membership with a Boy Scout troop or Varsity Scout team.

Venturing members are eligible to participate in the Jamboree. There has been an overlap between this policy being established and the recent publishing of an updated version of the Guide to Safe Scouting which states that only Boy Scout and Varsity Team members can participate. The electronic version of the guide will be updated to reflect the correct information. The hard copy version will be updated at the next printing. Should you or anyone in your council receive questions, please relay the correct information that Venturing members are eligible and encouraged to participate in the Jamboree.
