2023 National Scout Jamboree

When the first National Scout Jamboree was held Washington, DC 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.  Since that time, an additional 18 National Jamborees have been held and you have an opportunity to join the 19th National Scout Jamboree at the Boy Scouts of America’s world class facility, the Summit Bechtal Reserve in West Virginia from July 19 through 28, 2023. 

National Scout Jamborees are one of Scouting's pinnacle events.  Jamborees are an opportunity for more than 30,000 Scouts, Venturers, and Scouters, to come together for fellowship, high adventure, and exciting once in a lifetime programs.  Piedmont Council is planning to host two Scout troops for this Jamboree of 36 youth and 4 adults.  Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
