The Gateway Area Council is now making plans to send male & female SBSA members to attend the 2023 National Jamboree. This may include working with neighboring councils in a shared contingent.

 

Every four years the BSA organizes the ultimate Scouting experience, the National Jamboree, an event that brings together over 40,000 Scouts and adult leaders from throughout the country. It is the ultimate in Scouting experiences where you will be able to take part in mountain climbing, kayaking, rafting, shooting, SCUBA and many, many more activities, while meeting Scouts from around the country.

 

 

Important Details

 
  • Youth attendees must be age 12  and have achieved 1rst Class rank . As the Jamboree was postponed in 2021 - attendees who are over 18 but not yet 21 can attend this Jamboree as a youth member!
  • The Jamboree will occur over 10 days in July. We are planning for a few days travel each way for a trip which could be up to 14 days total.
  • The final fee will likely be between $2,000 and $2,500. However if we opt to travel to the Jamboree without any pre-touring the cost could lessen.
  • A payment plan and fundraising opportunities will be available.
  • Scholarships may also be available from BSA National for families who register early.
  • All costs to attend along with all travel fees (meals, transit, tours, etc) will be included in the fee.
