GNFC - Camping2013 Boy Scout Jamboree











For the first time VENTURE CREWS will be included in the 2013 Jamboree.

Register now, don't wait space is limited.

There's only one first time - be one of the first VENTURERS to experience the SUMMIT of adventure!

The 2013 Jamboree will also be the first to break-in BSA's newest high adventure camp - The SUMMIT Bechtel Reserve - in West Virginia.  Be there to help. 
The SUMMIT is more than just a place for Scouts; it's Scouting's Next Step.  This is an adventure center for the millions of youth and adults involved in the Boy Scouts of America.

It's the beginning of the next century of Scouting. With incredible facilities and intense outdoor programs, The SUMMIT is a place that takes scouts to the limits of what they think they can do, and then goes further.
