2017 National Jamboree: Live Scouting’s Adventure

At the second jamboree to be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, you’ll be able to explore the mystery, adventure, and beauty of a West Virginia summer. And the adventure of Scouting.

You’ll join more than 30,000 Scouts from all over the country, as they enjoy 10,600 acres of wild, wonderful West Virginia at the Summit and find out first hand just what it’s like to Live Scouting’s Adventure.

That’s it! That’s the theme for the 2017 National Scout Jamboree: Live Scouting’s Adventure. In Scouting, as in life, adventure takes on many meanings: high adventure, learning, camaraderie, and simply being part of something bigger.

The 2017 jamboree theme encompasses all of these aspects, and participants will quite literally experience every element of adventure in what will be a mega-event of any Scout’s lifetime.

The Cascade Pacific Council will be sending hundreds of Scouts to the Jamboree during the summer of 2017 and we need the best of the best to apply for leadership positions to lead our Scouts. The CPC 2017 National Jamboree Leader application is available online now! Visitwww.cpcjamboree.org today.

Youth applications will be available soon, too.
