WashJam is a regional Scout Jamboree, held once every 4 years in Lakewood, WA.
Started in 2004 as a joint venture between Pacific Harbors Council and Chief Seattle Council, WashJam has been held every 4 years since; in 2004, 2009, 2012, 2016 and 2022.
WashJam is a regional version of a National Scout Jamboree, attracting Scouts of all ages from around the Pacific Northwest, including Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia, Canada.
The first WashJam took place in 2004, at the JBLM Training center north of American lake, where it remained until 2016. The founders of that first WashJam were Alan Billingsley, Jeff Mann and David Ankemann, who were looking for a 'big' activity for the Scouts to do on the years between National Jamborees, which are held every 4 years.
