Scouting's Jamboree

Baden-Powell's Vision

In 1916, Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting movement, knew what success looked like for the 10th anniversary of Scouting. It was the sight of thousands of youth gathered together to celebrate. The jamboree was born! In his words, "The secret of [Scouting's] growth lies in that indeterminate force which we only know as the 'Scout Spirit' and grow it has!"

2017 National Jamboree

Join 40,000 other Scouts and leaders at the 2017 National Jamboree to be held at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia July 19 - July 28, 2017.  Whitewater rafting and kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing and bouldering are just a few of the activities offered at the Summit.
