R U Going to Jambo?
The 2023 USA Scout Jamboree dates were announced today - July 19-28, 2023 - and the Jambo website is up and running. Pretty exciting stuff for a Wednesday!
Enter your email at that site to stay informed of details as they unfold. It's not too early to start planning how to get your scouts to this massive Scouting event. The last national jamboree was in 2017 with a theme of "Live Scouting's Adventure" but then the 2021 jambo was cancelled due to, well, you know... that covid thing.
The 1973 jambo is the alltime high record with 73,610 participants, but that was held in two locations. 1960's single location, in Colorado Springs, set the single location record of 56,377. 2023 probably won't set any attendance records, but it has been six years, so who knows?
If that's not enough excitement, how about attending the 2023 World Scout Jamboree in South Korea on August 1-12, 2023? The theme for this jambo is "Draw Your Dream" and it celebrates South Korea's 100th birthday of Scouting. What an exciting year for some Scouts BSA members to attend the National Jambo AND be in the US contingent to the World Jambo the next week? Do you think anyone will do it?
That would be a big time and $$$ commitment, but what a super summer of Scouting!
