2023 National Scout Jamboree

July 19-28, 2023

Register

Jamboree is more than a destination. It’s the adventure of lifetime. And there is simply nothing else like it on the planet.

What’s a Jamboree? It’s not camp. National Jamboree is 360-degrees of fun, friends and fellowship with hands-on adventure that takes you places you never thought you’d go and challenge you to try things you never thought you could.

It’s the beginning of your own heroes’ journey that will challenge you to go farther than you ever thought possible. You’ll reach deeper and lift yourself higher to become the best version of yourself.

2023 Pennsylvania Dutch Council Jamboree Contingent Now Forming

The Pennsylvania Dutch Council plans to send a contingent to the 2023 Jamboree. Registration is completed online at https://jamboree.scouting.org/.

If you are interested in being part of the contingent please contact Roscoe van Muylwyk, Jamboree Scoutmaster, jambo2023@vanmuylwyk.com, 717-679-0878 or  Daniel Hanson, Field Director, daniel.hanson@scouting.org, 717-553-4205.

Cost

The current estimated Jamboree cost is $2,250.00.  The Council Jamboree committee does their best to deliver value when planning for the Jamboree, however, there are costs that are beyond the control of the Pennsylvania Dutch Council. For example, transportation contracts cannot be signed until much closer to the actual Jamboree departure date and prices may change. Costs may also be affected based on the total number of participants in our contingent.
