BSA National Scout Jamboree 2017 Logo

The 2017 BSA National Scout Jamboree will take place at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve (The Summit) in West Virginia, USA from 19th July to 28th July, 2017. Over 40,000 Scouts and Leaders from the USA and beyond will camp, live and work alongside each other. Participants must be aged between 14 and 20 years old on 19th July 2017 – that is those born between 19th July 2003 and 19th July 1997.

The jamboree experience is one of the best Scouting events a Scout can attend. The Summit is the permanent home of the BSA’s National Scout Jamboree. With this in mind, the BSA has built the ultimate Scout playground. The programs include BMX biking, skateboard parks, mountain biking, hiking, challenge courses and so much more.

The Barbados Boy Scouts Association will be sending a contingent to this Jamboree. Mr. Ryan Charlemagne ADC. was been appointed as the Contingent Leader. To qualify to be a member of the BBSA Contingent, interested Scouts must meet the National Criteria for Regional Events by 31st March 2017. The fee for this activity is BDS$5,300.00 per person which includes airfare, Jamboree Fee and camp fee (including meals, travel insurance, and Contingent Kit). The payment schedule is available in Circular #2. A number of fund raising activities are being planned in conjuction with the Canadian Jamboree Contingent to help cover any additional cost and to help reduce the fee.
