If The Summit’s new Web site doesn’t get you fired up, nothing will

With its attention-grabbing colors, easy navigation, and useful information, there’s a lot to love about the new Web site for The Summit.

Scouts and Scouters will find that it’s a great place for up-to-the-minute information about the BSA’s fourth high-adventure base and the home of the 2013 National Scout Jamboree and 2019 World Jamboree.

The Summit’s new Internet home just launched today, but already there’s a ton of information Scouters will want to know.

Here are some highlights, organized in convenient bullet form:

  • Registration for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree will open in late spring. The event will be held July 15-24, 2013, and it’s open to First Class Scouts (or higher) who are at least 12 by the first day of the Jamboree and haven’t turned 18 by the last day.
  • Do some Scouts in your unit know their way around a computer? Then suggest that they apply for Patrol Z beginning March 1. Patrol Z is a group of Scouts who will share stories, photos, and videos about Scouting.
  • The Shape the Summit Survey is your chance to speak directly to the base’s planners.

The physical Summit is all about exploration, and the Web site is no different. In fact, I’m off to go look around some more right now.
