In this clip, James Howard, a volunteer Scouter with W.D. Boyce Council in Peoria, Illinois, shares his reactions after a visit to the Summit Bechtel Reserve — the site of the BSA's 2013 National Jamboree. "It's overwhelming with excitement, total excitement for the boys," he says. "It's a Mecca for the Boy Scouts."

The national jamboree is a celebration of Scouting held once every 4 years. As many as 40,000 Scouts and Venturers will gather at the jamboree for high adventure, fellowship, entertainment, and all things Scouting!

Be sure to check out other people's surprise at how far the Summit has come along:

Some of the world's best architects, engineers and high adventure designers have been guiding construction crews, who've been working 2 shifts a day, 6 days a week for much of the time since construction began in late 2010.

The Summit Bechtel Reserve is 10,600 acres of the best of Scouting — high adventure like rock climbing, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, zip lines and ropes courses, even BMX and skateboarding. And, there's all the traditional Scouting action, too: shooting sports, archery, pioneering, leadership, team-building, and more.

Located in southern West Virginia, the Summit is the BSA's fourth national high adventure base, and it's the new permanent home of the national Scout jamboree. In 2019, the Summit will host the World Scout Jamboree.
