National Scout Jamboree June Open House

There are only 14 months left until the Jamboree, and around the country the excitement is building in Scouting!  Scouts in Patriots’ Path Council that have already registered are busy deciding which adventures they will do when they are there.  Pistol, crossbow, black powder rifle, rock climbing, BMX, skateboarding, zip lines, whitewater rafting and canopy tours are just a few of the 100s of activities available.  Plus stadium shows, patch trading and the chance to meet thousands of Scouts from all over the country.  You can check out all of the latest news at the National Jamboree website.

Our 4 male and 1 female provisional troops are filling up fast, so sign up now if you want to go to the biggest event that BSA offers.

Still have questions?  Come to one of the Jamboree Open Houses in June.  There will be staff to answer any questions, plus activities, jamboree displays, snacks and maybe ice cream.

  The two dates are:

  • June 15th, 7:00pm -8:30pm – Winnebago Scout Reservation – Parade Field, Winter Lodge
  • June 16th, 7:00pm – 8:30pm – Watchung Reservation

If you will be able to attend, please register here so we can have a better understanding in how many light desserts to bring.  Don’t forget to tell your fellow Scouts.

Event Details:

The National Jamboree dates physically at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve are July 19-28, 2023, with an overnight at Concord University on July 18, 2023.

Pricing based on current transportation fares is set at $2,100.*

(*Price may increase because of fuel cost or other factors.)

Upon registration, a $445 deposit ($100 is non-refundable) is required to secure the spot.  Initial deposit can be made directly online, by check mailed to the council service center, or by visiting one of the Scout shops.  Completion of the online registration is required regardless of payment method.

There is an additional 3% charge for all credit card payments, which is the council’s cost.  The 3% credit card processing fee is the same regardless of paying directly online or through the council office and Scout shops.  Payments by cash or check will not incur a 3% processing fee.

Trip Insurance:

Patriots’ Path Council does not provide trip insurance for its National Jamboree participants as it is less expensive for individuals to purchase trip insurance for themselves than it is for the council to purchase a group policy.  The council strongly recommends that each family consider purchasing trip insurance that may best meet their needs.

Council Refund Policy:

Please refer to the Council Refund Policy for more information. The High Adventure and Jamboree Refund Policy is in effect.

Other Important Information:

All participants must adhere to The Code of Conduct and Physical Fitness requirements set forth by the National Office.
