2023 National Jamboree

Scouting’s next big adventure is on the way!

Stay Tuned: More Info Coming soon!
(Dates will be added for travel and touring)

The National Jamboree will only host 15,000 participants in 2023. So, space will be extremely limited and will be very competitive to secure slots. Therefore, we will begin collecting a “hold deposit” of $500. The “hold deposit” is fully refundable – up to March 31, 2022. This will allow the Aloha Council to determine the demand for slots. In 2021, we secured 120 slots – and we were nearly sold out. We will try diligently to secure as many slots as possible, but I assume it won’t be at previous levels. The “hold deposit” applies to both youth and adults.

The overall cost of the experience is still being determined – but should be around $3,800 (subject to change) – full payment will not be due until early/mid 2023. Additionally, we will help scouts fundraise to assist in offsetting the cost.

The Jamboree is open to all qualified youth and adults on a first-come, first-served basis. Adult leaders can apply to be part of the council contingent or as staff at the Jamboree. Contingent leaders will be selected from volunteers that apply for adult leadership roles.
