The ’97 Jamboree returned to Fort A.P. Hill, outside of Fredericksburg, Virginia with the goals of giving Scouts and leaders a clear understanding and a deeper sense of commitment to the ideals of Scouting, demonstrating to America and the world that camaraderie and the objectives of a great youth movement in a free society can be attained, even during a huge gathering, emphasizing physical fitness and conservation of natural resources in today’s world, and establishing and promoting Scouting activities and methods that will find their way into the program of troops throughout the nation. Activities included scuba diving and conservation. The Patch for that year’s Jamboree marked a return to tradition and style of the first Jamboree patches. The compass logo was surrounded by a golden merrowed border with the reminder to “Be Prepared For The 21st Century” embroidered around the top.
