National Scout Jamboree Bus Trip

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

We just received word about the new Jamboree visitor policies – including a whopping $10 Jamboree admission charge.  PLEASE NOTE:  Your registration through Pack 883 will include this admission charge – we will not raise the price of the trip to accommodate this “surprise” registration fee.

The registration deadline (June 1) is fast approaching.  If you are planning to go, please send your registration as soon as possible.

Given the complexity of having to pre-pay the admission charge to the Jamboree via snail mail, early registration will guarantee you a spot on our buses and a ticket to the Jamboree.  Please register before the June 1 deadline.

Not sure what a Jamboree is?

Bottom line:  you and your son will meet people from across the US and around the world, see Scouting at its finest, and have FUN!

The attached article was in Reader’s Digest this month. Many boys will grow up to outstanding citizens, husbands, fathers, and role models – with our without Scouting. However, some young men will become outstanding citizens, husbands, fathers, and role models because of their involvement in the Scouting program. Here is one of those stories…

It shows why so many leaders devote so much time to the Scouting program – for the boys.
