A message from Your Baltimore Area Council Jamboree Contingent Leadership Team:

There are two steps that must be taken to register youth for the National Jamboree.

First, on the Baltimore Area Council website, you will need to set up a Black Pug Account if you don’t already have one (usually a parent account).  All Jamboree payments are through the Council, using the Black Pug registration for on-line processing.  The initial deposit increases depending on when the registration takes place.

Second, apply on the National Jamboree site (will open TBD). The application must be through a youth My.Scouting.org account. The site will walk you through setting up a Scout My.Scouting.org account if your youth doesn’t have one (National Jamboree application may not be done with a parent account.) You will need your youth’s BSA ID number. 

To register please send an email request to:


Please contact Andrew Lupus alupus@baltimorebsa.org or Glenn Sellers at glennsellers7@gmail.com if you have any questions
