Jamboree staffers: Register now!

Wanna get your hands dirty at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree? Pitch in and serve on staff.

There are plenty of cool jobs available to help pull off what’s sure to be a memorable jamboree experience at the new Summit Bechtel Family Scout Reserve in West Virginia.

Want to work at a high-adventure area, behind the scenes at an arena show, or even as a media correspondent for one of the many jamboree news outlets? Go to bsajamboree.org and peruse the open staff positions. Then, make your selection of the top three jobs that suit your interests and skills. Most volunteers are typically placed with one of their selections.

Staff volunteers age 16 to 25 (through July 14, 2013) will pay $425 to register. For volunteers older than age 25, registration is $850. Staffers also have the option of working half of the jamboree for $425 no matter the age of the volunteer.

For more information or to apply online, visit bsajamboree.org or send your questions to 2013jamboree@scouting.org.


  1. FYI, We are going to need losts of full time staffers for the Collections Merit Badge. We already know that we’ll be located in the Arena Activity area.

    If you would like to be on Collections MB staff, please select “Merit Badge” as your first choice when you register for a Jamboree staff position. Please also send an email to craig.leighty@gmail.com and I’ll make sure your name is on the list. If you have any questions, please also send an email.

  2. I was interested in applying for a staff spot, but I am handicapped (Bad feet) and everything I read says you have to be able to hike everywhere. In reality I’m good for about 50 yards tops, and that’s allot. Will there be any kind of accomodations, or options, or ust no such luck?
