The new permanent home of the National Jamboree, The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in Mount Hope, WV, is well under way.  The development and planning of The Summit and the Jamboree are continuing. A whole host of new and traditional activities, events and programming will make up the jamboree and Summit experience.  We cannot wait!!

That being said, all the planning, program areas and infrastructure in the world does not a Jamboree make.  It is the volunteers that over see the programs and interact with the Scouts that breathe the life into creating this unforgettable experience.  Thank you to all who have volunteered in the past! 

So if you have been waiting to find out how you can get involved… here is your chance to be part of history and get involved with the future of Scouting.  If you are available, without commitments to your local council, July 11th-25th, 2013 (potentially longer dependent upon service area), then go on line and register now! Not able to commit to the entire Jamboree? The 2013 jamboree staff for particular areas will be able to choose in which of three sessions to serve: Session 1 (the entire jamboree, July 11–25), Session 2 (the first week, July 11–18), or Session 3 (the second week, July 18–25). The jamboree is currently accepting volunteer applications for all 2013 National Scout Jamboree sessions as well as the 2012 Summit Shakedown for a variety of program areas:

·     Programs:

  • Mountain Biking
  • Zip Lining
  • Canopy Tours
  • Challenge Courses
  • Shooting Sports
  • BMX
  • Skateboarding
  • And much more

·     Base Camp and Subcamp Operations

·     Jamboree Retail

·     Jamboree Logistics

Some require more training and experience than others, but don’t worry; all the training necessary to be able to volunteer will be provided. For the zip line/canopy tours, training will be offered throughout the country over the months leading up to the jamboree. These dates are fast approaching, and we want to make sure those interested get a spot in this ACCT Professional Vendor training.

Interested? Here is the next step:

Determine your availability. Go to www.BSAJamboree.orgExternal Link and follow the staff links to review the qualifications, fees, and staff positions.
