National Scout Jamborees are one of Scouting’s defining events. Jamborees are the opportunity for more than 30,000 Scouts, Venturers, and Scouters to come together every four years in a high adventure, high energy, much-anticipated event.

Scouts and Venturers from across Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana will join in an adventure of a lifetime. The Pathway to Adventure Council Contingent Package will depart on July 17th, 2023 before arriving at the National Scout Jamboree held at the Boy Scouts of America’s world-class facility, Summit Bechtel Reserve, in West Virginia from July 19-28, 2023.
