Join us for the Scouting adventure of a lifetime!

For most Scouts the National Jamboree is a once-in-a-lifetime event; it only occurs once every 4 years and the minimum age for participation is 12! 

This event is open to all youth involved in Scouts BSA and adults may attend as participants for the FIRST TIME EVER!

The cost for the Jamboree is $3,700 and includes roundtrip airfare to Washington DC; all meals; deluxe motor coach for half-day sightseeing in DC, overnight accommodations in Pennsylvania, a tour of Gettysburg and transportation to The Summit; National Jamboree fee; Jamboree “swag”.  The only expense beyond the $3,700 is personal spending money. 

Our Jamboree Troop is limited to 40 participants with a minimum of 4 adults required to fill the leadership positions; Scout Master, First Assistant SM, Second Assistant SM, and Third Assistant SM.  Any adult interested in serving in a leadership role should contact Ryan Hansen, Jamboree staff advisor.

Veteran Scouter and Eagle Scout Mark Zimmerman from Bismarck is serving as the Jamboree Scoutmaster.
