OA and the National Jamboree

Jambo2013_Logo_Circle_300x300Are you between 16 and 21 years of age and would like to attend the 2013 National Jamboree?  The OA is looking for Arrowmen to help with the Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve.  The cost is $425 per person (as compared to $850 for regular staff.  There are also some scholarships available up to $250 for needy Arrowmen.)

Serving on the OA Staff at a National Jamboree is a wonderful experience.   In addition to the Indian Village, they are looking for OA members to be mini-trek leaders and general Service Corps members.  (There will be mini High adventure treks as part of the Jamboree experience.)  OA staff frequently wind up escorting VIPs.  OA staff will also get days off to experience the Jamboree events as well.

You can find out details at http://event.oa-bsa.org/events/jambo2013/  and register at https://summit.scouting.org/en/Jamboree2013/Pages/Staff.aspx .


For adults (not just OA adults) they are still looking for people to help staff the Jamboree.  Go to https://summit.scouting.org/en/Jamboree2013/Pages/Staff.aspx to see what skills are still needed.
