Photo Fridays: National Scout Jamborees (18 photos)

If you had a time machine, you could set the date to 07-15-13, and the 2013 National Scout Jamboree would start today.

Unfortunately, though, the big Summit event is less than a year away. (Click here to learn more and register!)

In the meantime, let’s instead travel back in time to past national jamborees by checking out 18 photos sent in by real Scouters like you.
