National Scout Jamboree is an exciting once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which is coming up in the summer of 2023.
Every four years, Scouts from across the country and the world gather together to share the “greatest scouting experience on earth.” This tradition was started to celebrate the 25 anniversary of scouting and the first Jamboree held in Washington, D.C. in the summer of 1937 (the 1935 Jamboree was cancelled due to a polio outbreak). Beginning in 2010, a permanent home was found in the wilderness of West Virginia to hold the Jamboree at The Summit: Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, an 11,400 acre property.

We will be holding information sessions for scouts and families interested in May. The sign-up deadline for scouts is after that information meeting in May.
If you are interested in applying to go as an adult leader, bringing our contingent troops on this once-in-a-lifetime trip, please contact Mark Hallerman, Mount Baker Council Jambo Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and application.
