Join 40,000 other Scouts at the 2017 National Jamboree to be held at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. Participants will experience the 2017 theme, Live Scouting's Adventure, every day of the Jamboree. Whitewater rafting and 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, and zip-line challenge courses. And that's just the beginning. You will find forest canopy touring, buckskin games, SCUBA, rappelling towers, an American Indian village and more. The opening and closing arena shows are not to be missed. It's Scouting at its very best!
