World Jamboree

Crater Lake Council Invites Scouts to World Scout Jamboree

What is World Jamboree?

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held in the summer of 2019 from July 22nd to August 2nd in West Virginia at the Bechtel National Scouting Reserve. The first World Scout Jamboree was almost 100 years ago and the World Scout Jamboree has only been held in the United States one time in that 100 years. To say this is going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity is an understatement. Come join 50,000 Scouts from more than 150 countries and be part of the largest gathering of youth in Scouting history.

How much does it cost?

The fee is $2,800 and that is for everything, including transportation and participation across 12 days. Scouts and Venturers, male and female, who will be 14 but not over 18 by July 22, 2019 are eligible. Youth need to reserve their spots now. The good news is that payments can be made over time and Scouts can start earning money now. Council fundraisers have already begun! The bad news is that slots will fill up and be gone by summer!

This once in a lifetime opportunity must be seized now – our Scouting area, which goes from Alaska to Northern California only has allotted 252 youth. Mr. Mark Smith and Mr. Kevin Padrick from Crater Lake Council are two of the Scoutmasters selected to represent the Pacific Northwest.
