National Scout Jamboree Youth Registration and Application Process

Scouts and Venturers from across the Black Swamp Area Council register for the Jamboree as individuals. In September 2022, Scouts and Venturers will be allocated to troops and crews based on the Scout’s and Venturer’s geographic location. This allows Scouts and Venturers from the same troop or crew and neighboring troops and crews to come together to form contingent troops and crews. Contingent troops consist of 40 participants, 36 youth and four adult leaders. Contingent Patrols consist of 10 participants, 8 youth females and 2 adult leader females. 

Registering for the 2023 National Scout Jamboree is a two-step process. You register with the Black Swamp Area Council website to pay your Jamboree fees. You apply to the National Scout Jamboree website to attend the Jamboree. Your application/registration process is not complete until you register on the council website and submit your application on the National website.

Scout Participant Qualifications

  • MUST have a current BSA membership with a Scouts BSA troop.
  • MUST be at least 12 years of age by the first day of the Jamboree (July 19, 2023) and has not reached their 18th birthday by the last day of the Jamboree (July 28, 2023).
  • Be approved by the unit leader and local council.
  • Participate in pre-Jamboree training experience with local council and unit leader.
  • Filed a BSA Health & Medical Record parts A, B, and C with their council within one year of attending the Jamboree.
  • Submit all registrations fees per the Black Swamp Area Council payment schedule.

Step 1:  Youth attending the Jamboree with the Black Swamp Area Council register on the council website and make their Jamboree payments through the same website . 

**For youth Jamboree registrations, be sure to use youth registrant’s BSA Member ID, not a parent’s or guardian’s BSA Member ID number.**

All participant payments are non-refundable but can be transferred to another non-registered participant who replaces a cancelling participant. Additionally, application requires that the Scouts and Venturers abide by the specific policies of the Jamboree and failure of any participant to adhere to those policies will serve as grounds to have their participation revoked (with no refund).

Step 2: Apply to attend the Jamboree on the National Scout Jamboree website, https://jamboree.scouting.org/  when the site is up and taking applications. All interested youth and adult applicants can apply to attend the Jamboree. Youth apply as “participants” (troop/crew members). Adults apply as volunteer staff members. Applicants follow the instructions posted on the National website.

**Reminder for youth Jamboree applicants, be sure to use youth applicant’s BSA Member ID, not a parent’s or guardian’s BSA Member ID number.**
