National Scout Jamboree (Boy Scouts of America)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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 Boy Scouts of America. Referred to as ''the Jamboree'', ''Jambo'', 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 Boy Scouts of America offers. The first jamboree was scheduled to be held in 1935 in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Scouting, but was delayed two years after being cancelled due to a polio outbreak. The 1937 jamboree in Washington attracted 25,000Scouts, who camped around the Washington Monument and Tidal Basin. The event was covered extensively by national media and attended by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Following the disruption of World War II, the next jamboree was not held until 1950 in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Subsequent jamborees have been held around the country as a means to promoting Scouting nationally. From 1981 to 2010, the jamboree was located in Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia. Beginning in 2013, jamborees will be permanently held at The Summit: Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in Mount Hope, West Virginia.

A jamboree is held for approximately a week and a half and offers many activities for youth participants and the 300,000 members of the general public who visit it, several days after participants leave, depending on their assignments. Subcamp staff stay in the subcamps with the troops, while other staff stay in the staff camp.

First national Jamboree
The first national jamboree was held in Washington, D.C. for ten days in July 1937, attended by 25,000Scouts, most of whom arrived by train. Region campsites were set up around the Washington Monument and Tidal Basin. The event was covered extensively by radio and newspapers. A press tent accommodated 626news media reporters, photographers, and broadcasters. Sixty-four news releases were issued and the BSA assisted in the making of 11newsreels and 53 magazine articles. The three major U.S. radio networks of the time, NBC, CBS, and Mutual, had broadcasting studios near the jamboree headquarters to produce almost 19hours of live, on site jamboree coverage broadcast coast to coast. Celebrities also visited the jamboree, including well known broadcaster Lowell Thomas and U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. While at the jamboree, Scouts also attended a three game baseball series between the Washington Senators and the Boston Red Sox at Griffith Stadium, as well as toured nearby Mount Vernon.
