The 2017 National Scout Jamboree, to be held for only the second time at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in southern West Virginia from July 19-28, 2017.
Volunteer Staff Application is available here: http://www.summitbsa.org/events/jamboree/volunteers
We are excited and hope you are too! We thank you, in advance, for your generosity of time, talent and effort as is needed to “Live Scouting’s Adventure”.
The excitement of the jamboree isn’t limited to Scouts. The Summit features a large visitor area, where day-users can try out some of the activities that the Scouts are doing around other parts of the Summit. Also, 2013 was the first year that Venturers, a branch of the BSA that includes young women, were part of the jamboree. Whitewater rafting and kayaking, rock climbing and bouldering, and mountain biking are just a few of the activities offered at the Summit. There’s also skateboarding, BMX, shooting sports, and zip-line challenge courses. And that’s just the beginning.
