Does anyone know if there will be a National Jamboree in 2023?  The one in 2021 was postponed and as of now it appears there will not be a National Jamboree in 2022.  I know there is a World Jamboree in 2023 but was hoping there could be a National one as well.  

We are attempting to determine our High Adventure plan for the summer of 2023 and National Jamboree was the top choice.

It is my understanding the bankruptcy documents say 2023. With that said, a few weeks ago I got a survey from national if there should be a jamboree in 2022, 2023, or 2024 if I recall. I don't know if anyone knows for sure.

In the discussion I have been involved it is still up in the air, but...

2022 - is all but officially a no go. In part because the logistical wheels would need to be in full motion at this point and they are not. Could something be pulled together? Possibly, but it would be very high risk of failure. Secondly, it is also NOAC in 2022 which is already in full motion. 

2023 - This is a possibility. First, the US contingent has a limited on how many can go to World Jamboree, but it is still likely several thousand. Second, the cost for South Korea will be several thousand dollars due to cost of flying. There may be some contractual obligations to work out with WOSM about not conflicting, but given Covids impact the last couple of years, it can probably be worked out. Third, it may be a more attractive opportunity than 2024, which is the year before the next SCHEDULED Jamboree.

2024 - Possibly, but not as likely as 2023 or waiting to 2025. Holding Jambo in 2024 would mean not having 2025 and would make the next Jambo 5 years out in 2029. I can see them doing a 2023 and a 2025 and getting Jambo back on a regular schedule.
