Setting off fireworks is an unauthorized activity in the Boy Scouts of America, but watching a fireworks display conducted by licensed experts certainly isn’t.

In fact, some of the most exciting fireworks displays in Scouting happen at one of Scouting’s most exciting events: the National Scout Jamboree.

The 2021 Jamboree was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic but, thankfully, the Jamboree is coming back in a big way in 2023. The fun will happen at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, which allows the Jamboree to offer just about every warm-weather Scout activity you can imagine, from rafting to rock climbing, from mountain biking to fishing, and everything in between.

You can sign up for the 2023 Jamboree now. In the meantime, enjoy this photo gallery of fireworks from past Jamborees. (Click any photo to enter the gallery.)

Happy Independence Day, everybody!
