The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held in 2019 at the BSA’s new permanent Jamboree home: the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. It will be co-hosted by three Scout organizations: the Boy Scouts of America, Scouts Canada and Asociación de Scouts de México.
A World Jamboree in our country is a once-in-a-generation event. The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be the first held in North America in 36 years (1983, Alberta, Canada) and the first held in the United States in 52 years (1967, Idaho).
Some 50,000 Scouts and Scouters from 167 different countries are expected at the event, to be held July 22 to Aug. 2, 2019. They’ll meet people from around the world while enjoying SBR’s world-class adventure offerings.
The promise of the World Scout Jamboree on American soil is encompassed in the U.S. contingent’s motto: “The Boy Scouts of America wants you to come see the world!”

College isn’t cheap, but for more than 150 worthy Eagle Scouts, it’s about to get a lot more affordable.
The National Eagle Scout Association will award nearly $700,000 in scholarships to Eagle Scouts based on their academic performance, Scouting background, college plans and financial need.
The window for the latest round of National Eagle Scout Association scholarships opened Aug. 1, 2017. It will close for good on Oct. 31, 2017. Scholarship recipients will be notified by mail on July 15, 2018, and money will be disbursed to these deserving Eagle Scouts in fall 2018.
The scholarships are highly competitive. Less than 3 percent of the 5,000 expected applicants will receive a scholarship.
But if you are an Eagle Scout between your senior year of high school and junior year of college, you’ll want to apply and give yourself a chance at earning some cash for college.
All Scouts and Leaders from the Columbia Montour Council are encouraged to attend and/or participate in the Community Day at the Bloomsburg Airport on September 16.
We are still looking for units that will be willing to set-up demonstrations and/or presentations.
For more information contact one of the individuals listed on the Community Day Unit Invitation Letter.

The Columbia-Montour Council is happy to be participating in the second year of the nationwide Lion pilot program in the 2017-2018 Scouting year.
“The Lion program is fun, hands-on and active. It’s simple and easy to implement. It’s age-appropriate, builds character and develops new skills.
"That’s just a glimpse of what parents and youth across the country are saying about Lions, the BSA’s pilot program for kindergarten-age boys."
"Lions answers the call for fun, character-building after-school adventures for boys 5 or 6 years old or in kindergarten."
"Pilot is the operative word here. It means this program is evolving based on feedback from parents and BSA professionals. Based on that feedback, as well as surveys and focus groups, the BSA has some changes to announce for this fall."
