Bay Area CouncilHIGH ADVENTURENATIONAL JAMBOREE 2017

National Jamboree 2017

The Adventure Begins Juy 2017

 

Imagine 50,000 Scouts, Venturers, volunteers, and staff from all over the country, all gathered together for one big celebration of high adventure Scouting. Held once every four years, at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in the mountains of West Virginia, high adventure never looked so enticing with whitewater rafting, zip-lining, rappelling, mountain biking, hiking, camping out with friends, meeting new friends, and learning new skills. For 10 days, there are exhibits, stadium shows with entertainment, opportunities to work on merit badges — there's something for everybody.
