A National Scout Jamboree is a gathering of thousands of Boy Scouts, held every four years and organized by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Referred to as the "Jamboree" or National Jamboree, Scouts from all over the nation and world have the opportunity to attend. It is considered to be one of several unique experiences that the Boy Scouts of America offers.
The first Jamboree was scheduled to be held in 1935 in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Scouting, but was delayed two years. The 2010 National Jamboree celebrated 100 years of Scouting in the US (1910 to 2010). The Jamboree offers many activities for youth participants and the 300,000 members of the general public who visit it. It is considered to be Scouting at its best.
Our mission is to provide the Scouts pure enjoyment in the spirit of Scouting, while creating the very best memories of the National Jamboree, that will last them a lifetime. Involvement at the National Jamboree will allow them to have fun and provide opportunities for them to grow in character and learn values that will help them throughout life.
