2013 Jamboree: Staff Still Needed, Videos Track Progress at Summit

If you like to be in the thick of things helping out, you’re going to love this.

The Summit is entering the final stretch as it gears up for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree, and we’ve still got openings for excited, qualified staff. Here’s a list of areas where we still need the most help:

Canopy Tour/Challenge Course and Zip Line Staff: There is a training component of three to six days, depending on the person’s prior training (e.g., BSA COPE instructor or director), that must be completed prior to the jamboree. The Summit is organizing this training at various locations across the country. The cost to all volunteers is traveling to the training site. There will be no fees for the training course or for room and board during training. These positions require staff to be at least 18 years of age.

Shooting Sports: The jamboree is in need of NRA-certified instructors for pistol, rifle, and shotgun, as well as Archery USA—Level 1 instructors, and NRA range safety officers. Shooting sports staff positions are for those at least 21 years of age.

Extreme Sports: Wanted: Experienced mountain bikers! No certification is necessary, just knowledgeable hobbyists. Skateboard and BMX staffers also are needed. Knowledge or experience in these areas is a plus but not required. Both youth and adult jamboree staff positions are available.

Aquatics: Experienced paddlers are needed. ACA certification is a plus but not required. Youth and adult positions are available in kayaking and standup paddle-board areas.

    I am a very skilled and athletic boy scout(never made it to eagle scout). I would love to be helpful with any volunteer work I could. It would need to be located near Harlan/Woodbine area for I often do not have much income past living expenses. I am a professional property manager and have multiple skills in maintenance and building homes. I am eager to volunteer because of my eight year old son would benefit greatly from these activities.

      Brian, you should contact your local council to learn about volunteer opportunities in your area. Visit http://www.beascout.org and click on the yellow “Volunteer” tab to locate your nearest council.

      Thanks for your support of Scouting!
