Home > About Us > What Is WashJam

Welcome to the ONLY regional Scout Jamboree in the Pacific Northwest!

We are excited to have members of our Scouting community from Washington, Oregon, Canada, and other states join us for WashJam 2020. The first WashJam was held 15 years ago; and is held only once every 4 years. We are anticipating over 5,000 participants will attend WashJam 2020, making it the biggest Scouting event in Washington State.

Tens of thousands of hours of preparations and effort have gone into the planning and production of this exciting four day event, which started in the fall of 2017.

We hope you will receive a taste of a National Jamboree experience while participating in this awesome event, where you will meet Scouts from as far away as Canada and Oregon. Meet new friends and learn about Scouting in other regions as you camp together with over 5,000 Scouts. Our goal is to provide you with unique adventures so that you will remember that 'I was at WashJam 2020' for many years to come.

This year will feature many activity areas for our participants to enjoy. As they travel around the different 'Lands' of WashJam, they will discover activity areas such as the STEM@WashJam Technology Challenge, Land of Adventure, Cub Scout Adventure World, the Land of Advancement, Leadership Challenge, Survival Challenge, Aquatics Challenge, Rifle and pistol shooting and other themed areas.

Cub Scouts and their families will enjoy the 'Under the Big Top' circus themed area, with activities, carnival games, craft projects, shows, BB guns and Archery, and much more.

WashJam will also include a Mountain Man Encampment, Civil War Reenactors, Roman Legionary Soldier encampment, Vikings, Jousting show with knights in shining armor, military displays, Order of the Arrow Indian Village, archery range, rifle range, food vendor midway, Friday and Saturday night arena shows and a 'Zombie Invasion Night Hike'.

We will also have many of the traditional Scout craft areas to test your skills and practice your team building and outdoor skills knowledge.

We would also like to thank in advance, the over 500 staff volunteers who will help to make WashJam 2020 a reality! Here's to another great WashJam experience, the Ultimate Adventure!
