All Program Activities


On Columbus Day weekend, 2018 thousands of Scouts, Webelos, and Venturers from Massachusetts and surrounding states will descend on the Cape Cod fairgrounds in East Falmouth, Massachusetts for three days of Scouting fun, exhibits, challenging activities, competitions, entertainment, and fellowship.

Seven councils from Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the Cape Cod Fairgrounds, the town of Falmouth, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are participating in the planning of this event.

The first MassJam was held in 1985 on the grounds of the Tewksbury State Hospital in Tewksbury, MA. MassJam moved to its current home at the Barnstable County Fairgrounds in East Falmouth in 1993. Subsequent MassJams were held in 1999, 2003, 2008, and 2013.

Who Can Attend

Mass Jam is for Boy Scouts and Venturers attending as part of a participating troop or crew. Webelos may attend as guests of a participating troop.

Participant Registration

Scouts, Venturers, Webelos and adults attending as participants will register and pay through your troop or crew. Units will register and pay for all participants from that unit online. Register today at

MassJam is a massive undertaking, and requires a huge number of volunteers to be successful. There are many opportunities for volunteers to get involved.
