Join thousands of Scouts at the 2023 National Jamboree to be held at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. Participants will experience the 2023 theme “Forward”, every day of the Jamboree. Ziplines, kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing and bouldering are just a few of the activities offered at the Summit. There's also skateboarding, BMX, shooting sports, canopy tours, and challenge courses. And that's just the beginning. Youth Participants will enjoy these activities and spectacular shows, patch trading, and meeting Scouts from across the country. And in addition to all of the fun, the Jamboree lets kids form lasting friendships and unforgettable memories that they will talk about the rest of their lives.
Crossroads of America Council will take multiple troops to the Jamboree, each one supported by an experienced, skilled team of Scoutmasters and Assistants. The council plans to send troops for both young men and young women.
