2021 National Jamboree “Face The Challenge”
July 12 – August 1, 2021
Summit Bechtel, West Virginia

Twin Valley Council continues to accept applications to become part of the fun at Jamboree 2021.  

In July 2021,  Scouts will be asked to rise to the occasion and “Face the Challenge” by joining in Scouting’s next grand adventure, the 2021 National Jamboree. 

This is a gathering time for nearly 40,000 Scouts and Scouters showcasing everything that is great about Boy Scouts of America. Held every four years at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in southern West Virginia, the National Jamboree provides an amazing opportunity for participants and visitors alike to experience the best Scouting has to offer.  Adventures include one of the longest zip line courses in North America, a world class skate park, ATV offerings, treetop canopy tours, rock climbing, shooting sports, all types of aquatics including white water rafting, stadium shows, and much, much more.  The National Jamboree began in 1937 when 27,000 Scouts camped on the National Mall under the Washington Memorial.  2021 will be the 19th National Jamboree.


For each National Jamboree, Twin Valley Council puts together a contingent (or troop) to represent Scouting from Southern Minnesota. Our contingents consist of Scouts from the units our council serves.  Each contingent consists of 36 youth and 4 adult leaders. The 2021 Twin Valley Council Contingent is scheduled to consist of one male troop, and depending on interest and final Jamboree contingent rules, one female troop.

The Twin Valley Council 2021 Jamboree adventure will consist of a 20-21 day trip which will include many intensive days of touring and 10 days at the National Jamboree.  This will take place the last half of July 2021.  


The National Jamboree is open to all who are in good standing with the council and local troop/crew on a first-come first-serve basis.  Qualifications to attend the National Jamboree include:

  • Registered member of a Scout Troop and has completed 6th grade or will be at least 12 years old, but has not yet reached their 18th birthday, by the end of the Jamboree
  • First Class Scout
  • Live and abide by the Scout Oath and Law
  • Abide by the Council’s Jamboree Code of Conduct


The estimated Jamboree cost including the Jamboree and the touring portion is $2,500 (this is only an estimate and is subject to change after National announces the 2021 costs, and tour details are developed). Out of pocket expenses may include, but not limited to, additional uniforms, patches for trading at the National Jamboree and spending money.

Youth registration will continue to be open until March 1, 2021. A required $100 deposit is needed. This deposit is refundable if you do not attend Jamboree.  Currently, registrants are placed on a wait list and you will be notified if an opening is available.
