Got a hankering for some BIG adventure?
Plan now to attend the 2017 National Jamboree at The Summit! Scroll down for more information about this exciting event that only happens once every four years.
Registration for Jamboree 2017 is now open!
To register, you must 1) complete the online registration, AND 2) put your name on the list and reserve a spot with the Midland Scout office with a $250 deposit.
There will only be 36 spots for boys from the Buffalo Trail Council and they’re filling up quickly.
The 2017 jamboree follows on the heels of the wildly successful 2013 jamboree, the first jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia’s New River Gorge region.
National Scout jamborees from 1981 to 2010 were held at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., a fine jamboree site but not a permanent one. Fort A.P. Hill is an active Army training center, and we as Scouts and Scouters were only visitors there — albeit grateful ones.
The Summit Bechtel Reserve, meanwhile, is a permanent jamboree home, meaning the BSA got to build the ultimate playground for Scouts and Venturers. We’re talking 5 miles of zip lines and challenge courses, 36 miles of mountain bike trails, 13 acres of shooting sports ranges, kayaking, rock climbing, bouldering, skateboarding, BMX and so much more.
The Buffalo Trail Council will be putting together at least one troop to attend the jamboree. Complete pricing for the contingent has not been finalized but is anticipated to be in the neighborhood of $4,000 (including all transportation, food, tickets/fees, site-seeing, etc.).
