National Jamboree is Scouting's flagship event. It is a one-of-a-kind gathering of approximately 40,000 Scouts, leaders, and staff that showcases everything that is great about the BSA and its members. Typically held every four years, the Jamboree is an amazing opportunity for participants, volunteers, and visitors to experience the best of Scouting, all in one place. Features include one of the longest zip line courses in North America, a world-class skate park, ATV offerings, treetop canopy tours, rock climbing, patch trading, stadium shows, and much more! It is held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve on over 40,000 acres in the New River Gorge, the permanent home of the National Scout Jamboree and BSA's fourth High Adventure base.

With every Jamboree, the Aloha Council assembles a Jamboree Contingent. The contingent consists of several units, each comprised of youth and adult leaders. Contingents will include male and female ScoutBSA Troops.

The Jamboree is open to all qualified youth 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.
