2017 National Jamboree Registration is Now Open

The online registration system is now open for the 2017 National Jamboree!  Please review the participant and leader qualifications below to make sure you meet them and register as soon as possible.  We have requested 3 troops and 1 venture patrol.  We are hoping for one of those troops to participate in just the jamboree and not add on the tour prior and after the event.  There will be a different (lower) cost and payment schedule for this troop.  Details about the trip and exact costs will come out soon.

For those individuals interested in being a part of the adult leadership for the Jamboree we will need you to register as well.  We will conduct interviews for leadership positions based on those who apply through the national registration system.  Deadline for applying for adult leadership positions will be October 31, 2015.  When completing the online registration portion please keep in mind we are using this information to help with the decision so please be as specific as possible with your Scouting awards & honors (including woodbadge and other leader trainings), community participation, and prior jamboree participation.  Once you have registered online we will wait list you until all positions are filled.
