BSA 2017 National Jamboree

Hello Troop 648

I wanted to remind you that the 2017 National Jamboree is right around the corner. Really!

The National Jamboree is one of the most amazing experiences your Scout can have during their scouting career. 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. 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…

The Grand Canyon Council has formed 7 troops specific for just the Jamboree. Your Scout can choose to be part of a troop that tours a few major cities prior to the Jamboree or just be part of the Jamboree. We have had two Scouts sign-up for Troop 3, Jamboree only.

I’m told signs-ups have been ramping up lately and all slots are near or may even be full. For more info and to register, please click here.

Let me know if you have any questions.
