2023 National Jamboree

July 19-28, 2023

Summit Bechtel Reserve

The first Boy Scouts of America national jamboree was scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., in 1935 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Scouting in America. Unfortunately, the jamboree was canceled because of a polio outbreak in Washington. When the first jamboree was finally held in 1937, Dan Beard lit the opening campfire using flint and steel. Scouts from

all 48 states brought the wood that was used in the campfire. There were 27,232 Scouts camped on the National Mall under the Washington Monument. Since that time, an

additional 18 national jamborees have been held, the last in 2017.

Every four years, local councils put together Jamboree units, comprised each of Scouts and adult leaders. Provided there is enough interest and leadership, this year units will include

Male Troops, Female Troops, and Venture Crews.

The Jamboree is open to all who are qualified on a first-come, first-served basis. Qualifications for youth to attend the National Jamboree include:

Registered member of a Scout Troop, who has completed the 6th grade, or will be at least 12 years old (but who has not yet reached their 18th birthday by 8/1/2023) and a first class Scout by July 1, 2023. –OR–

Registered member of a Venture Crew who will be at least 14 years old (but who has not yet reached their 21st birthday by 8/1/2023).

Must live and abide by the Scout Oath and Law.

Adults who are interested in attending or would like to serve on the planning committee should complete the survey at


There are two ways to make this happen:

1. Have a leader get trained and serve as a campmaster for the weekend.

While serving as a campmaster, any leader can invite their unit (up to 12) or family to join them at camp for the weekend and pay no camping fee. Program fees (shooting, COPE, etc.) and camping fees beyond the alotted 12 will not be waived.

2.Complete a service project on the property.

For those units who would like to attend camp and use their time there to perform a day long (6 hour) service project, general camping fees will be waived. Half day service projects (3 hours) will result in half price camping fee. Service

projects must be pre-approved by the the camping department.

Program fees (shooting, COPE, etc.) will not be waived.
