The Mountains Are Calling All NESA Members

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” – John Muir

Dust off your hiking boots, restock your day pack and update your Scouting.org account because the mountains, at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, are calling you. It’s time to give your Eagle pride a purpose by volunteering as a Jamboree Service Team member at the 2023 National Jamboree. 

The 2023 National Jamboree is slated for July 19-28. Join thousands of members of the Boy Scouts of America as we Scout Forward. You can register online by visiting the Jamboree website. As a member of the Jamboree Service Team, you help give today’s youth the adventure of a lifetime and continue the mission and traditions of Scouting.
