National Jamboree 2021 CFC Contingent Payment
A national Jamboree is an encampment of Scouts/Venturers plus their unit leaders with the purpose of providing a dramatic demonstration of Scouting’s ability to develop world goodwill, a spirit of friendship, and a source of understanding among young people through fellowship, activities, and adventure. Most of the participants will come from the Boy Scouts of America although most of the countries with Scout associations will have representation. The National Scout Jamboree is the BSA’s iconic event, and one of the most gratifying experiences a Scout can have. Since 1937, the jamboree has provided an occasion for Scouts from all backgrounds, faiths, cultures, and parts of the country to come together around shared values, and to gain invaluable learning experiences through adventure activities. The jamboree is 10 days long and occurs every four years. With Jamboree happening only once every 4 years, chances are scouts may have only one opportunity to attend a National Scout Jamboree.
Here’s how you can lock-in your spot for this unique scouting adventure. The Central Florida Council is working to put together 6 units of approximately 200 Youth. Spots are limited, so we highly encourage you to confirm your spot as soon as possible. Cost will be approximately $2,000. CFC Contingent Jamboree fee includes 10 days at Jamboree plus transportation, side-trip excursion, meals, shirts, hat, shakedown weekend, patches and other spirit items. Camping equipment will be provided by the Summit. $100 will hold your place on Central Florida Council’s 2021 Jamboree Contingent, and is the only cost you have to pay at this time. Final actual cost, and payment plan structure will be communicated by the conclusion of 2019. Utilizing this portal you can continue to make payments at your leisure, until the formal payment outline is posted at the end of 2019.
