Scouts with Valley Forge Handbook

Travel and new experiences were key objectives of jamborees- seeing America en route and living and sharing with boys from all over the nation and world. For many scouts, a Valley Forge jamboree was their first visit to the east coast. Scouts could take train excursions to Philadelphia, Washington DC, and New York.

Valley Forge was the third of the eight American winter encampments during the Revolutionary War. It is the best known of the eight, however, because it is remembered as the birthplace of the Continental Army.
