2013 National Jamboree
Summit Bechtel Reserve, West Virginia
Daniel Webster Council Contingent Trip • July 13 - July 26, 2013
Daniel Webster Council is currently organizing a contingent trip to the 2013 National Jamboree at the new Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. This trip is open to Boy Scouts, Venturers, and a limited number of adult volunteers and will be the best way for Scouts and Scouters from Daniel Webster Council to participate in the entire Jamboree and see the BSA's newest high adventure base.
The contingent trip will provide transportation to and from the Summit Bechtel Reserve and include sight-seeing with overnight stays on the way to and from West Virginia. All Jamboree fees, transportation costs, and expenses for food and lodging will be included in a single fee, payable to Daniel Webster Council in installments.
The projected fee is $1,800 per person.
This is an estimate based on anticipated travel expenses. Every effort will be made not to exceed this cost, but Daniel Webster Council must reserve the right to adjust the fee based on actual expenses.
Registration is now available!
Registration for participation is online through the BSA's Jamboree website. No payment is required at time of registration. Applicant's will be contacted by Daniel Webster Council after completing the online application. SPACE IS LIMITED, so please register ASAP!
Adult volunteers for the limited number of Jamboree troop and crew leader positions must apply through the same process, and participation will be contingent on qualifications, available space, and approval by the Daniel Webster Council National Jamboree Committee.
