2021 National Jamboree





Dear Jamboree Participant,
It is with great disappointment we inform you that the 2021 National Jamboree has been postponed.  As part of the Golden Empire Council Jamboree Committee we wanted you to hear the news as soon as possible.  
The unpredictability of the pandemic and its impact on scouting and our units, which are key to the success of any Jamboree, are the two main reasons for this difficult decision.
The Golden Empire Council and the Boy Scouts of America is committed to the safety of all youth in our programs. Planning, preparations, and decisions regarding National Jamborees take place months, and even years, in advance. The unresolved issues surrounding the pandemic make it exceedingly difficult to plan and prepare for a premiere event of this size in a way that continues to keep the safety of Scouts, volunteers, staff, and communities at the forefront.
We know this decision brings many questions about your participation and the future of the Jamboree. To assist, the National Jamboree Office has compiled a FAQ at which will be updated as decisions are made and as more information becomes available. If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact either Laura Lovell, Staff Advisor, or myself.  The contact information can be found below.
At this point in time we do not have information regarding if and when the Jamboree will be rescheduled.  We will keep you posted as soon as we have more information. Refund information will be available in the near future, but we hope you will continue to plan on participating in what we hope will be in the 2022 National Jamboree the following summer. 
Like you, we are disappointed that we will not be able to participate in the National Jamboree next summer, but we know this is the right decision. We are grateful for your commitment to the Jamboree thus far and for understanding this extremely difficult choice. We are strongly committed to ensuring that this once-in-a-lifetime experience returns to the Summit Bechtel Reserve as soon as possible.
Yours in Scouting,
