      Who said it was too late to attend National Jamboree??? Please make sure this information gets out to your units.

       
      National Jamboree will take place on July 26-Aug 4th 2010. Troop 911 has 8 open spots for youth. It is located in Highlands Ranch. The meetings take place the last Sunday of every month at St Lukes Church off of Broadway and Highlands Ranch Parkway at 1pm. I encourage your scout to attend this Sunday if they are interested.
       
      Here is what you will need to know. The troop will tour East Coast historical sites for 6-8 days prior to the start of Jamboree and then will join the Jamboree for 10 days. Boys must be 1st class and 12 years of age by July 1 2010 but not be 18 by Aug 4th, 2010. The event will cost $2500. This includes ALL airfare, food and the tour prior to Jamboree as well as the Jamboree itself. Fundraising opportunities are available and the scout can earn the entire cost if he so wishes to participate.
       
      This is the 100th year of Scouting and the last time Jamboree will be held at Fort AP Hill in Virginia. It will be an experience to remember and the boys will have a lot of different activities to choose from while at Jamboree. They will also be a part of history and meet scouters from around the country. Rock Climbing, canoeing, orienteering and many other activities are planned.
       
      If you are interested, please go the the Denver Area Council website and search for National Jamboree. Once there, please click on the troop 911 link to sign up at our Council. You will then need to sign up at Scouting.org with your son's membership number. That will be on their blue membership card that they should have received. If you do not have that number, please call the Scout Office at 303-455-5544 and they should be able to get it for you.
       
      If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. This is going to be a once in a lifetime event! If your son is nearing 15, this will be his last chance to attend as a scout. There is no obligation to come to the meeting this Sunday and check it out and meet the Scoutmasters and other troop members.
       
      YIS,
