Get ready! The Boy Scouts of America 2013 National Scout Jamboree is scheduled for July 15-23, 2013! The event is filled with serious high adventure activities, such as whitewater rafting, zip-lining, rappelling, mountain biking, hiking, and more! Join 50,000 of your closest friends at the brand new Summit Bechtel Reserve in the wilds of West Virginia.
July 2013 seems like a long way off, but plans are already in-progress, and registration is now open for the Bay Area Council (BAC) contingent that will participate in Jambo ’13! Hurry and register, so you can be one of the first Scouts to ever camp at The Summit! Once selected, participants will be assigned to one of three Jambo Troops within the BAC contingent, and they will be required to attend monthly meethings in preparation for the trip.
ASM Dennis Gittens from our Troop has already been selected as a member of the BAC contingent, and some of our Scouts have already registered to attend.
The BAC contingent will (tentatively) leave the Houston area via bus, approximately 5-7 days prior to the start of camp, stopping along the way for exciting activities (suggested events are stopping in Memphis, TN, to ride and have lunch on a riverboat, and visiting Washington, DC, among others). Though final decisions have not yet been made regarding the trip itinerary, planning is underway.
The cost of the trip for BAC members will be between $2200 – $2500 per participant. This includes the cost of the Jambo, a duffel bag, food and travel fees, and three complete uniforms (provided by BAC).
