High AdventureBSA Home2021 National Jamboree

Face the Challenge - New Date TBD


The National Executive Committee of the Boy Scouts of America has voted to postpone the 2021 National Jamboree. This decision was made with the safety of Scouts, volunteers, staff members, and communities at the forefront of this committee. Like you, we share a great disappointment that we will not be providing this opportunity in 2021. We are still recruiting for the Jamboree, but we do not have a new date or other new information at this time. Please contact Dan Ksiazek or Glenn Sellers if you have any questions



However, we are still holding promotional webinars on the below days (click the date to signup). The National Jamboree is still going to happen (at a later date), and the BAC will still be putting together one of the biggest contingents to visit. So, signup today to hear about all the great things you will experience at the National Jamboree!


During this time of no in-person unit meetings or roundtables, we have decided to hold a few virtual National Jamboree Rally’s on the Zoom platform to build excitement and answer questions for those who are interested in attending.. These events will cover the once in a lifetime opportunity that is the Jamboree, who can attend, how to apply, and what is to be expected before and during the trip. Each meeting will be limited to 80 participants. Please let us know if you would like us to make a presentation at your District or Unit Event.

A message from Your Baltimore Area Council Jamboree Contingent Leadership Team:

There are two steps that must be taken to register youth for the National Jamboree.

First, on the Baltimore Area Council website, you will need to set up a Doubleknot Account if you don’t already have one (usually a parent account). All Jamboree payments are through the Council, using the Doubleknot “cart” for on-line processing. The initial deposit increases depending on when the registration takes place (the total amount remains at $1,950).

Second, apply on the National Jamboree site (will open in December 2019). The application must be through a youth My.Scouting.org account. The site will walk you through setting up a Scout My.Scouting.org account if your youth doesn’t have one (National Jamboree application may not be done with a parent account.) You will need your youth’s BSA ID number.
