2017 National Jamboree

July 19 to July 28, 2017


It’s the biggest event in Scouting: a national, high adventure gathering of some 40,000 Scouts, leaders, and staff held only every four years.

Boy Scouts and Venturers at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree will enjoy more than 5 miles of zip line and challenge courses, 36 miles of mountain bike trails, and 13 acres of shooting sports ranges, on a sprawling 10,600-acre site in West Virginia designed for excitement! Try out world class venues for kayaking, rock climbing, bouldering, skateboarding, BMX, plus enjoy arena shows and more.

Register now to join the nearly 200 members attending in 2017 from our council. The trip begins with a tour of Washington, D.C. before heading to the Jamboree site.
