2023 National Jamboree

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.

Find general information on the Jamboree here.

The Pine Tree Council has committed to sending at least a crew of 8 males and 8 females to the 2023 Jamboree.

We encourage you to watch the recorded informational meeting from April 14, 2022. After which, the first step is to register online at the Jamboree website.

Once your registration is approved, you will be contacted by contingent leadership.
