2017 National Jamboree

July 19-28, 2017

The Seneca Waterways Council is sending at least two troops to the Scouting event of the year, the 2017 National Jamboree at the Summit. 

Registration is open and troops are forming NOW!  

As of February 1, 2017, 2.5 troops have been formed. We are three participants shy of full. Once these troops are filled we will start a wait list for scouts, we will use the is list to fill any openings that come up.
