National Jamboree Memorabilia

The national Scout jamboree is a gathering, or jamboree of thousands of members of the Boy Scouts of America, usually held every four years and organized by the National Council of the BSA. Referred to as "Jambo", "the Jamboree", or NSJ, Scouts from all over the nation and world have the opportunity to attend. They are considered to be one of several unique experiences that the BSA offers. The first national Scout jamboree was scheduled to be held in 1935 in Washington D.C. to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Scouting, but was delayed until 1937. The idea of holding the event on a regular basis did not take root at first, and the next national Scout jamboree wasn't held until 1950 in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. 

The national Scout jamboree were then held around the country as a means to promoting Scouting nationally. From 1981 through 2010, the U.S. Army has allowed the BSA to use Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia as the home location of national Scout jamborees. Starting in 2013 the National Jamboree is held at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, West Virginia. A jamboree is held for ten consecutive days and offers many activities for youth participants and the 300,000 members of the general public who visit it. It is considered to be Scouting at its best.

The national Scout jamboree is divided into regions - Central, Western, Northeast, and Southern. Each region is made up of five to six subcamps, with twenty in all. Each subcamp has its own latrines, shower facilities, food commissaries, with one action center per region. Each subcamp contains a number of troops, identified by a three or four digit number depending on the location of the subcamp within the encampment.

Trading Eagles has a large selection of National Scout jamboree patches, National Scout jamboree memorabilia and the World Organization of the Scout Movement
