2021 National Jamboree Interest Form

Scouting’s flagship event is one-of-a-kind. It’s a gathering of approximately 40,000 Scouts, leaders, and staff that showcases everything that is great about the BSA and its members. Held every four years, the Jamboree is an amazing opportunity for participants, volunteers, and visitors to experience the best of Scouting, all in one place. Features include; one of the longest zip line courses in North America, a world-class skate park, ATV offerings, treetop canopy tours, rock climbing, patch trading, stadium shows, and much more!



The first Boy Scouts of America national jamboree was scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., in 1935 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Scouting in America. Unfortunately, the jamboree was canceled because of a polio outbreak in Washington. When the first jamboree was finally held in 1937, Dan Beard lit the opening campfire using flint and steel. Scouts from all 48 states brought the wood that was used in the campfire. There were 27,232 Scouts camped on the National Mall under the Washington Monument. Since that time, an additional 18 national jamborees have been held, the last in 2017.



Every four years, Cherokee Area Council puts together Jamboree Contingent Troops to attend the National Jamboree. Each contingent is comprised of 32 to 36 youth and 4 to 8 adult leaders.  This years contingent will consist of youth from male Troops, female Troops, and Venture crews. 



The Jamboree is open to all who are qualified on a first-come, first-served basis.  Qualifications to attend the National Jamboree include:

• Registered member of a Scout Troop, who has completed the 6th grade, or will be at least 12 years old (but who has not yet reached their 18th birthday by 8/1/2021) and a first class Scout by July 1, 2021.


• Registered member of a Venture Crew.

• Must live and abide by the Scout Oath and Law.

• Must abide by the Jamboree Code of Conduct.



A non-refundable reservation fee of $200 must accompany this initial registration. In early 2020, there will be an organizational meeting to discuss a payment schedule, monthly meeting schedules, fundraising opportunities, etc.
