SCOUT JAM 2019
REGISTRATION OPENS APRIL 30th!
SCOUT JAM 2019
Scout Jam promises to be far bigger and more action-oriented than any Scouting event in 2019, and to be the NEIC's biggest scouting event in recent history. ScoutsBSA troops, Venturers, Explorers, and Ships should get this exciting adventure on their calendars today. We also strongly suggest that ScoutsBSA troops invite Webelos Dens to camp with them, and for all Scouts to bring a friend!
We are expecting a very large number of participants and many of the featured activities will need to be reserved, so make sure to register early!
Our Premiere Adventures include:
- Mountain Biking (Silver Lake State Natural Area)
- Cycling Obstacle Course (Crown)
- Canoeing (Fox River Park)
- Kayaking (Silver Lake)
- BB/Pellet Gun Range (Crown)
- Archery Range (Crown)
- Wrist Rocket (Crown)
- Fishing Activity and Demonstration (Fox River Park)
- Portable Climbing Wall (Fox River Park)
- Special Needs Activity - Beep Ball & Kickball (Fox River Park)
- GPS Geo-caching (Crown)
- These events will be held in 45 minute blocks to enable full immersion in the adventure and to enable maximum fun!
We also will have numerous videos, tours, and open access exhibits including high adventure opportunities, information about the upcoming National Jamboree in 2021, and things to do as a unit.
Where is SCOUT JAM?
Scout Jam is so big and action packed that we have to have three venues (don't worry, we'll have shuttles). Camp Crown will be one of two main action centers, the other being Fox River Park just north of Camp Crown and "high adventure" activities will be at Silver Lake Park.
The grand finale of the event will be Saturday night, featuring a band and fireworks.
Information and Registration:
The Leaders Guide with all the information you will need to successfully register and participate has been posted. Check often as it will be occasionally updated and will be re-posted with the update date.
Registration will start in April 2019, so be sure to take advantage of early bird registration discounts and early campsite selection. The costs will go up the longer you wait plus the desired campsites at Camp Crown (traditional) and Fox River Park (Jamboree-style) will go fast.
Check back here often for updates! We will also send a council-wide notice to announce the registration opening. See you at Scout Jam!
