  • 24th World Scout Jamboree
    For the first time, a world jamboree will be hosted by three national Scout organizations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. These three distinct cultures will join together to host the world Scouting community in a celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship.
  • An Orthodox Jewish Venturing Crew Gave New York-Native Women the Jamboree Experience of a Lifetime
    "Scouting has allowed me to do things that I wouldn't have done otherwise. It has allowed me to be free," says Hadassah Grimaldi, a member of an all Orthodox Jewish Venturing Crew.
  • How a Treehouse Taught Sustainability at Jamboree
    Participants of the 2017 National Jamboree got to relive their childhood through The Sustainability Treehouse. But this wasn't just any old tree house. This was a treehouse that stood four stories tall. Each level had interactive activities, demonstrations, and displays all focused on sustainability.
  • How to Trade Patches at Jamboree
    At the National Jamboree, patch trading has been a surprisingly fun way to build friendships. Some Jamboree attendees even claim they just came just for patch trading, which surprised me. So I dug in and looked a little deeper and found that this is very nearly its own sport at Jamboree.
  • Pro BMX Rider, Mike Escamilla, Advises Scouts to Stop Worrying About Being Good at Something
    "If I could give any piece of advice to anyone that is listening, stop worrying about being good at something and start worrying about how to be good at something. If you can master how to get good at one thing, you can master how to get good at anything. Just know it takes time. The difference between you and somebody else is somebody is quiting at 500 tries when it takes 10,000. As long as you know that, you can go anywhere."
  • The Few, the Proud, the Japanese at Jamboree
    I had no idea there were any Japanese Scouts at the National Jamboree until we heard about Camp Foxtrot. Over and over, I heard it hailed as 'the camp where all the action is at.' Why? Because all the smaller foreign contingents were matched up with U.S. contingents allowing for a camp full of unique cultural, lingual and gastro excitement. (P.S. the Thai camp had the reputation for best food at Camp Foxtrot. Can't say I'm surprised. Thai food is bomb.)
  • The Jamboree Experience
    The 24th World Scout Jamboree unites the world's Scouts to promote peace, mutual understanding and respect.
  • This is how BSA members can participate in the 2019 World Scout Jamboree at SBR
    "We want to let every Scout and Scouter within BSA know about this opportunity and how attainable and accessible the World Jamboree is," Christian says. "This is your opportunity to get involved with international Scouting."
  • Why the Summit is Perfect for the 2019 World Jamboree
    "Besides outdoor wilderness adventure, the Summit has more than five miles of zip lines, a whitewater-rafting circuit, a 120-foot tree house, and a stadium for 85,000 people. That's why he thinks it is the perfect location for the 24th World Scout Jamboree and that is exactly why he brought it here.
  • World Scout Jamboree 2019: Adventure Awaits
    The World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is the most significant event from the World Organization of the Scout Movement. About 50,000 Scouts from more than 160 nations attend. WSJ aims to promote peace and understanding among youth from different places and cultures. Many ventures take place during the event located at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve. The WSJ taking place in 2019 will be the 24th. The original Jamboree took place in 1920 in England.
  • The Future of Scouting in the Utah National Parks Council
    On May 8th, 2018, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced that it would no longer charter Scout units after December 31, 2019. This has led to many questions about what Scouting will look like now and in 2020 in the Utah National Parks Council, which is made up predominantly of LDS units. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions...
