Scouting’s flagship event is one-of-a-kind. It’s a gathering of approximately 30,000 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!

HISTORY 

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.

Registration to the 2021 National Scout Jamboree consists of two (2) registrations:  2019 National Scout Jamboree administered by Scouts BSA with registration opening in December 2019; and Michigan Crossroads Council (MCC) for package selection and fee payment administered by MCC (open in August 2019).

The Michigan Crossroads Council is offering three ways for youth to join the 2021 National Scout Jamboree.  Each youth selects a package that meets the youth’s needs.  In addition, youth choosing the Jamboree and Adventure package or the Jamboree, Adventure, and Tour package will help in selecting the high adventure experience and tour activities.
