More than 20,000 Scouts and Scouters will explore all kinds of adventures—stadium shows, pioneer village, adventure sports, patch trading, and more—in the heart of one of nature’s greatest playgrounds.

As a GNYC Jamboree participant you will function as a member of a Troop- that means “Pre-Jamboree” events to get to know your fellow Scouts and start working collaboratively. 

Camp life is the backbone of the jamboree, the place where you work and play together with your fellow Scouts. From setting up camp on Day 1 to taking it all down on Day 10, your Troop’s campsite is your home away from home. Experiences like these strengthen units, solidify leadership, and forge friendships.

Partial units will be grouped together prior to the jamboree to form complete units of 40. The 40-person unit is ideal for housing in multiples of two Scouts per tent, and for most tour buses that are 40 passengers in size. Each site in the subcamps is designed to accommodate a group of 40.

Due to limited restroom and shower facilities the 2023 National Jamboree will require units to camp as ScoutsBSA male units or ScoutsBSA female units.  (see picture below)

Jamboree youth participants must currently register with the BSA to access the jamboree applications and be at least 12 years of age before July 19, 2023.

 Due to the postponement of the 2021 National Jamboree; Scouts BSA members that are 18-20 years of age may also register as a Jamboree participant and attend with a Scouts BSA unit.


All participants (youth and leaders) are selected to represent their local councils based on qualifications in character, camping skills, physical and personal fitness, and leadership qualities. Therefore, all adult and youth participants and their parents or guardians are asked to read the Code of Conduct and Statement of Understanding as a condition of participation.
It is with the further understanding that serious misconduct or infraction of rules and regulations may result in expulsion (at the participant’s own expense) from the jamboree or during the jamboree tour. Each participant is responsible for his or her own behavior, and only when necessary, will the procedure be invoked to send a participant home from the jamboree.
