Attend the 2023 National Jamboree with the Denver Area Council contingent!

This website is the source of information for scouts and adults who will participate in the Jamboree as part of the contingent from the Denver Area Council*. 

The U.S. National Jamboree is the premier event for Scouts BSA, and it only happens once every four years. In this case, the gap will be six years because the COVID-19 pandemic forced cancellation of the 2021 event. The Jamboree will take place July 19-28, 2023

Our contingent will travel together from Colorado to the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. It will be 10 full days of the best scouting activities on the planet with the biggest group of Scouts anywhere. It’s an amazing experience!


*As you may know, the Denver Area Council is planning a name change to be announced in the fall of 2022. We’ll be going to National Jamboree using the new council name, of course!

What is the National Jamboree?

The BSA National Jamboree is a gathering, or jamboree, of thousands of members of the Boy Scouts of America, usually held every four years and organized by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Referred to as “the Jamboree”, “Jambo”, or NSJ, Scouts from all over the nation and world have the opportunity to attend.

They are considered to be one of several unique experiences that the Boy Scouts of America offers. The first jamboree was scheduled to be held in 1935 in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Scouting, but was delayed two years after being cancelled due to a polio outbreak. The 1937 jamboree in Washington attracted 25,000 Scouts, who camped around the Washington Monument and Tidal Basin.
