1st National Jamboree
The First National Jamboree was held in Washington from June 30 to July 9, at the invitation of President Roosevelt, with an attendance of 27,232 representing 536 councils. This site presents over 100 photos, aerial views, maps and articles providing a unique resource for Jamboree history and for this significant moment in the history of the Boy Scouts of America. Most of the material comes from The National and World Jamborees in Pictures published by Boy Scouts of America in 1937 to commemorate the two Jamborees.
