FACE THE CHALLENGE!
The Summit is calling!
The Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve is the high adventure base that will be home to the 2021 Scouts, BSA National Jamboree. Imagine rock climbing, kayaking, over 5 miles of zip line, challenging BMX mountain trails, and whitewater rafting in West Virginia’s New River Gorge! That, and more, awaits you.
Make sure you take a look on-line at jamboree.scouting.org to preview the adventure that could very well be yours!
The Central Minnesota Council has reserved 35 slots for our Scouts to enjoy the 2021 Jamboree. These will be filled on a first come first serve basis…..so act soon. Scouts must be 12 years or older (but not 18 by July 30, 2021) and must have achieved the rank of First Class by July 21, 2021. The estimated cost is $2,500 which includes airfare, equipment, three days of touring Washington D.C. and ten days at the Jamboree. Uniforms, patches and other personal costs may not be included in this fee. Organized fundraising opportunities will be planned, beginning with our 2020 Spring sale featuring Virginia Peanuts and Pecatonica River Popcorn.
