What is a jamboree? Well, if you like shooting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, biking, skateboarding, and archery—this is for you. The jamboree is held in the mountains of southern West Virginia at a place called the Summit Bechtel Reserve. It’s so cool. It has more than 3 miles of amazing zip lines, canopy tours, world-class rock climbing, and more.


There are massive high-energy stage shows, exhibits, live bands, great food, and a lot more. The U.S. military brings the coolest vehicles, including helicopters. Plus, you are there with your friends trading patches, meeting Scouts from all over the nation, and having a great time.


 Every four years the Blue Ridge Mountains Council takes a contingent of Scouts [and Venturers]. Some troops go all together, and the council also places Scouts into jamboree troops that all travel together.

NOW is the time to plan on going, so you can make payments over time until you depart.


You don’t want to miss the national jamboree. It is literally a once-in-a-lifetime event for most Scouts.

The 2017 National Scout Jamboree takes place July 19-28, 2017 at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reservation in the New River Gorge area of West Virginia. The Blue Ridge Mountains Council will take two Troops of 36 Scouts each. Are you in?
