2017 NATIONAL JAMBOREE
July 14th to July 28th, 2017
(Includes travel and touring)
Dear Scouting Leader,
Once every four years – about once in a lifetime in Boy Scout years – tens of thousands of Scouts gather in one place for a National Jamboree. The setting for the 2017 Jamboree is the 10,000 acre Summit Bechtel Reserve in the breathtaking New River Gorge of West Virginia. Activities include Mountain Biking, Whitewater Rafting, Zip Lines, Kayaks, and Rock Climbing. Celebrate the adventure of Scouting for 10 days at Jamboree with 40,000 other scouts and leaders from around the country.
Trip Details & Cost
The Greater Wyoming Council is sending a contingent of 36 boys and 4 leaders to the National Jamboree in 2017. The contingent will fly out from Denver Friday, July 14th, 2017, and return to Denver on Friday, July 28th. For five days before Jamboree starts, the group tour through Historic Williamsburg, Mt. Vernon, Monticello, and the National Monuments of Washington DC. The complete two week trip – including National Jamboree fees, travel, touring, and food – costs only $2200 per Scout.
