They came from all 50 states and from 59 countries. They left with memories they’ll be talking about for decades to come and a greater appreciation for Scouting’s reach. The 2017 National Jamboree welcomed 40,000 Scouts, adult volunteers and staffers to Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia.
During the course of 10 action-packed days, Scouts, Venturers and Explorers met new people, experienced world-class high-adventure activities and performed more than 100,000 hours of community service.
On Saturday, Monday and Thursday evenings, the AT&T Summit Stadium filled with 40,000 Scouts and Scouters who were ready to rock. They were treated to performances by X Ambassadors, country singer Jessie Chris and the Plain White T’s. The closing show’s fireworks and laser display ended the Jamboree with a bang.
In 2019, SBR will welcome 50,000 Scouts and Scouters from more than 160 countries.
