2021 National Jamboree Invitation Letter

 

 

THE 2021 NATIONAL SCOUT JAMBOREE

July 16, 2021 – August 1, 2021

Summit Bechtel Reserve, West Virginia

 

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL SCOUT JAMBOREE?

Every four years or so, the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America organizes the ultimate Scout experience, the National Scout Jamboree! The next Jamboree is scheduled in July 2021. Over 40,000 Scouts and Scouters attended the last Jamboree in 2017, and 2021 promises to be bigger and better! All the excitement of past Jamborees will be incorporated into the 2021 Jamboree with new themes and shows.

 

CONTINGENT MAKE-UP AND TENTATIVE ITERNERY

The Gulf Coast Council is preparing to take two full male troops (72 youth and 8 adults), and a half a female troop (18 youth and 2 adults).

 

All participants will be required to travel with the contingent to and from the Jamboree, with an expected departure date of July 16th. On the trip to the Jamboree, the contingent will tour Washington, DC and the surrounding area and attend the National Jamboree July 21-30. The morning of the 30th they will leave the Jamboree and go whitewater rafting on the 31st, and return to the Gulf Coast Council on August 1st.

COST:

We project that the 2021 fee will be approximately $2700. Please understand that this fee is an estimate only and could increase. Every effort will be made to keep this fee as low as possible, while preserving the quality of the Jamboree experience. This fee will cover the National Jamboree fee, travel and tour expenses, meals, lodging, unit and patrol equipment, personal equipment, accident and sickness insurance, the cost of pre-jamboree training, as well as a set of patches, cap and t-shirts. The only additional expense will be for your uniforms, spending money, and any extra patches or souvenirs you want to purchase.
