Sample the Pioneer Life at 2013 Jamboree


Are you excited for the 2013 National Jamboree and the Summit Bechtel Reserve? Good, because we are too!

And to make sure the excitement continues to build, the volunteer team leader for all program activities at the 2013 jamboree, Russell Smart, is providing us with monthly updates on the Summit BlogExternal Link.

Last month, Updates from Team SummitExternal Link featured the popular buckskin games.

At past jamborees, buckskin games were part of regional action center activities. But on top of Garden Ground MountainExternal Link, these games will be expanded and will include a new area called highland games.

There, Scouts will have the chance to shoot black-powder rifles, throw tomahawks, toss a caber, and do many other fun and challenging activities. The staff working in these areas will be in period costumes and can answer questions about what it was like to live back in the “pioneer days,” when America was still expanding its Western frontier.
