The fee for the 2017 National Jamboree is $1,250. which is the same fee as for the last Jamboree. The National Fee has gone up, but your Jamboree committee is working very hard to keep the fee the same for Buckskin Council participants.

To register on-line, you must have a username and password. The My.Scouting account needs to be in the name of the person attending the Jamboree, not the parent/guardian that is com-pleting the application for a youth participant. The My.Scouting account you use should also be linked to your current BSA membership number.
