2013 National Scout Jamboree



Get ready! The 2013 National Scout Jamboree is coming and it ainít your fatherís jamboree. Weíre talking seriously high adventure, people! Whitewater rafting, zip-lining, rappelling, mountain biking, hiking, and more Ė with 25,000 of your closest friends at the brand new Summit Bechtel Reserve in the wilds of West Virginia.


Start planning now to be a part of history at the very first jamboree at The Summit.


Parents can register their Scouts by completing the online registration forms. Once applications are completed online, they must be printed out, approved and signed by the Scoutís Scoutmaster, and returned to the Knox Trail Council (Attention: John Fortini) with a $150 deposit. Priority for selection will be based on date of receipt of completed applications and deposits. The deposit will be credited towards the full payment for participation in the contingent. At this time, the Council Jamboree Committee has not set the final cost or determined the itinerary for the contingent, but it is expected that individual cost for participation in the council contingent will be $1550 +/- 10%, which includes transportation to and from the Jamboree site, food and lodging during travel.


Adult leaders for each troop will include Scoutmaster, and three Assistant Scoutmasters. One of the three Assistants will be between 18-21 years old. Adults register by clicking here; however, final selection of the adult leaders will be accomplished by the Jamboree committee before the end of February 2012. Scouts will be placed into one of the council troops during the Spring of 2012. As the Jamboree Committee determines more complete information for the travel, itinerary, and costs, we will post it on the council website . This Jamboree is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ever, and will bring with it many new firsts. Plan to join us at the Summit!
