2023 Jamboree - Info and Kick Off

Event Details

RSVP VIA LINK in Descritipion


The GNYC Activities Committee is preparing to send a contingent of Scouts to the 2023 National BSA Jamboree!

We'll be having special events to share information and details with interested, Scouts, parents, and leaders. Please join us!


Jamboree is more than a destination. It’s the adventure of lifetime. And there is simply nothing else like it on the planet.

What’s a Jamboree? It’s not camp. National Jamboree is 360-degrees of fun, friends and fellowship with hands-on adventure that takes you places you never thought you’d go and challenge you to try things you never thought you could.

It’s the beginning of your own heroes’ journey that will challenge you to go farther than you ever thought possible. You’ll reach deeper and lift yourself higher to become the best version of yourself.


Dates and Location

The 2023 National Jamboree will be Wednesday, July 19, through Friday, July 28, 2023, at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve. Departure day is Friday, July 28.


The 2023 National Jamboree is being planned for 15,000 Scouts BSA, Venturers, Sea Scouts, Explorers, and unit leaders, including more than 4,000 Jamboree Staff members. Each unit consists of Scouts BSA, Venturers, Sea Scouts and/or Explorers and 4 (minimum all must be 21 or older) to 16-unit leaders, not to exceed a total of 40. Each unit will be made up of groups of 10 that will be grouped together prior to the jamboree to form complete units of 40.
