Scouting's flagship event is one-of-a-kind. It's a gathering of approximately 45,000 Scouts, leaders and staff that showcases everything that is great about the BSA and its members. Over the course of 10 summer days, over every four years, the Boy Scouts of America comes together. The result is the National Scout Jamboree. The next jamboree will be held July 19-28, 2017. To keep up with the latest information. Visit the Summit PageExternal Link.

A New Venue: The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve

In 2009, the BSA purchased 10,600 acres of property adjacent to West Virginia's New River Gorge National River area in order to create the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve. The Summit is the new home of achievement, adventure, and innovation in Scouting. With world-class facilities and a focus on outdoor action sports the Summit welcomed Scouts to a whole new Jamboree experience during the summer of 2013.

Visiting the Mountains

There are incredible side trips that Scouts and families can take on their way to and from the 2017 National Scout Jamboree. A tour of Washington DC is only a few hours away, and the entire region surrounding the summit is filled with some of the most beautiful mountains in the country. The Blue Ridge is just to the south, and the Shenandoah Valley is a short drive to the east. That's not to mention all of the incredibly scenic areas in West Virginia.

 

High 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 dialing in around other parts of the Summit. 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 is just the beginning.
