Face the Challenge

The truth is that young people can achieve more than they believe is possible. Scouting uniquely prepares its members to redefine their boundaries, push past them and emerge from the experience with the confidence that no matter the challenge, they can meet it.

Nothing is impossible for the prepared young person — no future is out of reach for a group of committed people who care.

It’s important to signal that the limits people perceive are self-imposed, and that with an embrace and application of the 12 points of the Scout Law and three points of the Scout Oath, there is a bright and positive future.

Participants in the 2021 National Jamboree will learn that character is created when you achieve more than you thought possible.

National Jamboree Task Force
Focus Group Survey

As a part of the Boy Scouts of America’s continuous improvement process, Scouting families and participants are invited to share feedback on the National Scout Jamboree experience. This process will involve coordinated focus groups and virtual surveys. These sessions will start in mid-May and conclude in late July. Once completed, feedback gathered will be aggregated to produce a final report on recommendations for improving the jamboree adventure.

important tips before you apply

  • PLEASE NOTE: We are currently experiencing an issue in the registration system that is preventing BSA member numbers from being recognized, and is only presenting International attendee options. We expect the issue to be resolved by end of day Tuesday, July 14th. Please wait and come back on Wednesday, July 15th to complete your Jamboree application. Thank you for your patience.

  • To review the BSA Privacy Policy please click HERE.
  • Attention JST applicants: We are aware that the balance due reflected on some JST records is not giving credit for the submitted deposit, making the remaining balance due appear more than it should be. Our team is working to correct the issue. The registration fees for JST have not changed. This will be corrected as soon as possible. When making subsequent payments, you can edit the amount you are paying to correctly reflect your intentions. We thank you in advance for your patience.
  • All applicants must have a current BSA membership.
  • All applicants must have their own My.Scouting accounts, regardless of age. You must not add a youth’s BSA member ID to the parent’s My.Scouting account.
  • If the applicant does not have a My.Scouting account, use the “Create Account” button below to create an account first.
  • The username and password to the applicant’s My.Scouting account will be needed to access the Jamboree application.
  • The BSA member number must be linked in the profile of the applicant’s My.Scouting account.
  • The Jamboree application is populated from the data in the My.Scouting account. Make sure your information is correct in My.Scouting before you begin the Jamboree application! The functionality to update profile information only exists in My.Scouting, not in the Jamboree application.
  • Attention International applicants: Verification of membership and good standing by your National Scout Organization is required. Please be aware that there may be a delay of 60 or more days before your application may move into the placement phase.
