2017 Jamboree Contingent Still Has Room

The online registration system is open for the 2017 National Jamboree! Please review the youth participant qualifications below to make sure you meet them and register as soon as possible.

There are 32 Scout and 4 Venturing youth participants registered so far which means we have only filled half of our allotment of 2 troops and 1 venture patrol. Please sign up soon to make sure you don’t miss out! We will have information fliers at NYLT and all summer camp locations so we could easily fill up the second troop and the rest of the venture patrol this summer.

 Registration Instructions:

You will need your scout’s membership ID number.  You can call the Great Falls office to get it if you don’t have it. Phone: 761-6000

The web address is as follows: http://www.summitbsa.org/events/jamboree/jamboree-registration/

To submit a NEW application, you will need your My.Scouting username and password.  If you do not have a My.Scouting account, please go toMy.Scouting.org and follow the directions to create an account.

If you need technical support, call Member Care Services at (972) 580-2489.

A handful of things to be sure of:

  1. The My.Scouting account needs to be in the name of the person attending the Jamboree, not the parent/guardian that is completing the application for a youth participant.
  2. The My.Scouting account you use should also be linked to your current BSA membership number.
  3. The membership number that you linked to your Jamboree application will be linked to the entire process, including your BSA Health & Medical Record.
  4. All applicants must have a current, non-expired, BSA membership.
  5. Use Chrome, Firefox or IE 10 or above to access the Jamboree application.  Other browsers may not be compatible with this system.

Once your application is complete you will receive an email from National letting you know the council has reviewed your application and has approved your Scout for attending the Jamboree. You will then receive an email with the Montana Council Jamboree trip plan and payment options for the trip. Please fill out and return to the Great Falls Scout Service Center with at least the $100 nonrefundable deposit and if possible the payment amount to catch you up to the payment plan.
