Jamboree District

The Jamboree District was established in 1990 and is named for the 1960 National Boy Scout Jamboree that was hosted within the district boundaries. The open space areas have long since been developed into neighborhoods and shopping areas many of us now call home yet we see reminders everyday of this major event in our local history. There are several streets and landmarks which are so named from this event (Jamboree, Explorer, and Chapel Hills are just a few.) Many local families are familiar with the Chapel Hills Mall but may not realize that it is located where the Scout chapels were during the Jamboree. Similarly, the “Briargate Mustangs” near the junction of Briargate Parkway and I-25 are very near the rodeo grounds and stables for that 1960 event.Today, Jamboree District serves the youth of School Districts 20 and 38 in the communities of Northern Colorado Springs, Black Forest, Monument, and in rural Northern El Paso County.

It is important for us to recognize our heritage but even more so to have a vision of where we are going. The Jamboree District is committed to providing the very best Scouting experience for our Scouts and their families. Every leader and volunteer will do their best to deliver the promise of Scouting. Specifically:

  • Scouting promises the adventure of the great outdoors.
  • Scouting promises friendship.
  • Scouting promises opportunities to work towards the Eagle Scout rank.
  • Scouting promises tools to help everyone make the most of their family, community and nation.
  • Scouting promises experiences and duties that will help each Scout mature into a strong and wise adult.
