Face the Challenge
July 21-30, 2021
Participants in the 2021 National Jamboree will learn that character is created when you achieve more than you thought possible.
“Scouting instills confidence, helping young people discover they can achieve more than they thought possible. That’s the uplifting message behind the logo and theme for the 2021 National Jamboree, which the BSA announced today. Using Scouting’s highest-profile gathering to deliver a distinct thematic message signals a bold new approach for National Jamborees. It ensures that the theme, “Face the Challenge,” will leave a lasting impression on Jamboree participants and our entire movement.” -article: Bryan on Scouting
