2017 National Jamboree

Are you looking to learn more about the opportunities and activities planned for the 2017 National Scout Jamboree? Want to know how to sign-up as a participant? Than you are invited to attend our Jamboree Rally Events, hosted by the PPC National Jamboree Committee. Scouts age 12-17 and Venturers age 14-20 are eligible to attend the jamboree.

Though summer of 2017 seems far away, less than 50 spots remain, we will sell out! The jamboree troops and crews will form in April 2016 to begin preparations for 2017. We encourage you to sign up today to ensure that your Scouts spends this adventure with their friends. Every effort will be made to group Scouts from the same home troop or crew into the same jamboree unit. However once a particular troop or crew is full, Scouts will be assigned to another of the Patriots’ Path Council contingent troops or crews that have openings.

The 2017 NATIONAL SCOUT JAMBOREE will be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in scenic West Virginia, from July 18, 2017 to July 28, 2017. Patriots’ Path Council is sending 4 Scout troops and 2 Venturing crews. Each troop consists of 36 Scouts and 4 adult leaders.  Each crew consists of 8 Venturers and 2 adult leaders.

The cost per Scout/Venturer is $1625.00, and is inclusive of round trip transportation, all food, and lodging.  Registration is now open at www.2017JAMBO.PPBSA.ORG

These events are open to all interested Scouts and parents. We encourage Scouts to bring a friend who may be interested in attending.
