The Chester County Council plans to send two troops (64 youth male, 8 youth female, 6 adult male, and 2 adult female) to the 2021 Jamboree.

Application (coming soon)

If you are interested in being part of the contingent please contact David Mengel, Jamboree Committee Chairman, jamboree2021@cccbsa.org

Cost

The current estimated Jamboree cost is $1,750.00.  The Council Jamboree committee does their best to deliver value when planning for the Jamboree, however, there are costs that are beyond the control of the Chester County Council. For example, transportation contracts cannot be signed until much closer to the actual Jamboree departure date and prices may change. Costs may also be affected if the Jamboree contingent of two troops is less than full.
