2023 National Jamboree July 2023!

Posted on May 5 2022 - 9:35pm

Planning for the 2023 National Jamboree is underway. This is a once in a lifetime event for your scout. It only happens once every 4 years so most scouts only get the chance to go once as a Scout. The National Jamboree will be held at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia in July 2023. The Pacific Skyline Council will be organizing a contingent troop to attend together. It would be great to be able to send a number of scouts from Troop 42/4042 to this event. Take a look at the website and video and contact Ken Lin (kenfused@gmail.com) for more information if you think that this may be something that your scout is interested in. Signups will start this summer and be finalized early Fall 2022
