2021 National Jamboree

What is a Jamboree?

Held every four years at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, National Scout Jamborees bring together tens of thousands of Scouts from around the US, and beyond, for 10 days of outdoor adventure.

Our contingent troops are led by a Scoutmaster and 3 Assistant Scoutmasters who must meet the adult leader qualifications. Adults interested in serving in these positions should complete our council’s Jamboree Leader Application in addition to the standard Jamboree registration.


In addition to the Jamboree itself, our travel to and from The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia will include several additional activities including a stop to see the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Betsy Ross home in Historic Philadelphia, PA, heading to the Jamboree and a stop at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania after the Jamboree.



Planning the Jamboree is very detailed. Payments for the Jamboree, transportation and related costs are made months before the actual trip and are often non-refundable. Due to this, if for some reason you find that you are no longer able to attend the Jamboree, notice must be made in writing to the Council Service Center. Fees you have paid will not be refundable unless we have a replacement. It is not your responsibility to find a replacement and spaces cannot be promised to others. Replacements will be found from an established waiting list if one exists. Deposits are non-refundable under any circumstance except for those placed on a waiting list for whom Jamboree space cannot be secured. We appreciate your understanding.

Participant cancellations before June 30, 2020 will result in a full refund of fees paid less a $50 administration fee.

Cancellations between July 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021 will result in a full refund of fees paid less a $150 administration fee. No refunds will be given after January 31, 2021. All refund requests must be made using the online refund request form.
