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.
The 2021 National Jamboree is being planned for up to 32,000 Scouts BSA, Venturers, Sea Scouts, Explorers, and unit leaders, including more than 6,000 Jamboree Service Team members. Each unit consists of 36 Scouts BSA, Venturers, Sea Scouts and Explorers and four unit leaders, a total of 40. Each unit will be made up of groups of 10 that will be grouped together prior to the jamboree to form complete units of 40.
The cost for the NSJ is $1,500. This cost includes the 2021 NSJ registration fee, the Council supplied NSJ patches, nameplates, duffle, day pack, and transportation to and from the Jamboree. Participants are required to make scheduled payments to the NSJ for their registration. These payments are to be made to the Council so the Council can make a single payment to NSJ for all the members of their contingent. To meet this schedule, the Council has established a payment schedule. The initial payment is $175. Participants should then plan on paying at least $100 a month so the final payment can be made to NSJ by January 15, 2021.
