The Summit Experience: Join the Wild and Wonderful Adventure
The Summit Bechtel Reserve, a world class, sustainable, Jamboree site, will be the site of the 2019 World Scout Jamboree. The Summit Bechtel Reserve is located in West Virginia, USA, and is comprised of more than 14,000 acres of beautiful forested mountains adjacent to more than 70,000 acres of national park in the scenic New River Gorge area of West Virginia.
Our program will capture the four core values of The Summit Bechtel Reserve: adventure, service, sustainability, and leadership. The foundations of Scouting are as much a part of SBR as the zip lines, mountain bike trails, and BMX ramps.
Nord 2017 is the National Scout Jamboree hosted by The Norwegian Guide and Scout Association, taking place from 1 to 8 July 2017 in Bodø, located North of the Arctic circle where the sun never sets during the camp. The participants can enjoy activities day and night!An Australian Contingent is established and with a post-tour planned you will experience all the great things Norway can offer in addition to the jamboree – you will travel on boats, planes, buses, cable cars, trains and trams and see fjords, mountains and forests.
