Circle Ten Council Contingent

Live Scouting’s Adventure

It’s here! The 2017 National Jamboree will be held at The Summit Bechtel Reserve located on the New River and nestled in the West Virginia Mountains. Circle Ten Council has the largest contingent of Scouts and Leaders attend in the whole United States and we would like to offer you the opportunity to be a part of this once in a lifetime event, where you will join more than 30,000 Scouts from all over the country as they find out first-hand what it’s like to Live Scouting’s Adventure!

Circle Ten Council has 17 Troops and 1 Crew reserved. Each unit consists of forty participants, including 4 adult leaders and 36 youth who travel together. Leadership opportunities will be afforded to the troops that can recruit the most Scouts to attend the Jamboree and are approved by the Council Jamboree Steering Committee. Scouts must be at least a First Class Scout, 12 years of age by the first day of the Jamboree or an 11 year old that has graduated the 6th grade, but has not reached their 18th birthday by the last day of the Jamboree. Scouts who turn 18 years old during Jamboree must register as a Venturer or Junior Assistant Scoutmaster to attend. http://www.summitbsa.org/events/jamboree/participants/
