2013 National Scout Jamboree

Where the WILD Things Are!

The most epic National Scout Jamboree in the history of the Boy Scouts of America will take place July 15-24, 2013 at The Summit Bechtel National Scout Reserve in West Virginia.

The W. D. Boyce Council is proud to be a part of this historic event, with two Troops and a Venture Crew making the journey to The Summit. We’re making plans now to camp, explore, play, serve others, and have a blast with friends from all over the country, at a brand new facility tailor-made for Scouting fun and adventure.

If you’re going to Jambo, this is the place to be for news, information, documents, pictures, and links to help you get ready for your most exciting 10 days in Scouting. Come back often as we count down the days.


Mandatory Waiver Form For ALL Participants

A new piece of paperwork has been issued by National that must be signed and turned in by ALL Jamboree participants. It has the unmemorable name of "The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve 2013 National Scout Jamboree Medical Consent Acknowledgement Consolidated Form." You should download (in Documents and Links) and review this form carefully, fill in the Scout's name and have a parent or guardian sign where indicated. Then bring this form with you when you visit either the Peoria or Bloomington office to pick up your Jamboree gear after June 15.  We MUST get this form from everyone before we leave, both Scouts and adult leaders, and turn them in during the check-in process at The Summit.
