One Big Change in Store for 2013 National Jamboree

The 2013 National Jamboree is full of changes. Along with the event having a new home at the Summit Bechtel Reserve and new adventure activities, your Scouts will see another big change in scheduling.

The new model is designed to make sure that your Scouts and Venturers experience as much of the Summit as possible. How so? Before the jamboree begins, in early 2013, participants will be able to request the adventure activities they want to try. The jamboree team will take those preferences and work to fit everyone into their top choices. Most participants should get one of their top picks, and the lines and crowds will be way down.

While Scouts will be scheduled for a Day of Giving, a full-day trek to Garden Ground Mountain and two adventure activities, which may seem like a lot, the new model also allows for plenty of free time.

In addition, the activity schedule has been extended by four hours every day. That means it will run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and there will be some days without anything scheduled.

Oh, and did we mention the Summit Center (where you can find samples of all the activities) will stay open for Scouts each night after all of the visitors head home?
