National Scout Jamboree 2017 - FILL THE NETS!

24-Aug-2016 8:43 AM | Michael Brand (Administrator)

A quick up date on National Scout Jamboree 2017 to be held at SBR.

As of today, we have nearly 70% of our Fishing Staff registered for the National Scout Jamboree.  Meaning we have about 25 staff positions to fill. We would like to fill these positions in the next 30 days.  If you have not submitted your application for Staff for the 2017 National Scout Jamboree, we ask that you do so now.  

If you have submitted your application, and you have been confirmed for service, I would like to encourage you to invite a fellow Scouter to share your Jamboree / CAI experience. They need not be a CAI, but consider this an opportunity to recruit a future CAI.

Please be aware that you should have your BSA membership number handy in order to complete the application.   If you have multiple numbers, please know that the number you use for Registration will also eventually be the one that will be tied to your BSA Health & Medical Record (when the time comes to electronically submit these forms).  Also have your credit card available in order to make your $150 deposit.

 Below is the link to the 2017 National Scout Jamboree Staff Application:

 2017 Jamboree STAFF Registration

Once on the website’s landing page, select “REGISTER NOW” to begin your application (see below),


Please also note your CAI #!

If you really want to serve on the fishing staff, please list Fishing as your 1,2,and 3 choice!

Please note that applications must go through a membership verification process prior to Council approval.  This is expected to take several months and we appreciate your patience as we move everyone’s applications along.

We are excited and hope you are too!  We thank you, in advance, for your generosity of time, talent and effort as is needed to “Live Scouting’s Adventure”.
