The countdown to the 2010 National Scout Jamboree is about to drop into double digits. Just 100 days remain until the jamboree begins at Fort A.P. Hill, Va.
This summer's jamboree isn't just any jamboree. It's “The best, most exciting, fun-filled, safest jamboree ever!”
If you want to get caught up on jamboree-related news we've brought you over the past months, here are a few highlights:
- The National Council and National Capital Area Council will host the Grand Centennial Parade in Washington, D.C., before the jamboree.
- Eight different theme nights will keep Scouts and Scouters full of delicious food.
- Thanks to a partnership with AT&T, everyone can keep connected while at the jamboree. Extra cell phone towers and Wi-Fi hotspots will help with the added load.
Even if you can't attend the jamboree, make plans to watch the closing arena show at 8 p.m. (EDT) on July 31. The show, called A Shining Light Across America, will be streamed online, so you can watch from the comfort of home. Or make the celebration really special by gathering with your unit, district, or council to watch the Webcast together. It will truly be a night to remember.
