BSA National Council has just recently released some new information regarding the 2011 World Scout Jamboree which is going to be held in Sweden. The recently just put a registration system up for the Jamboree. The registration system is similar to the online system used for the 2010 National Jamboree. The Fee for youth staff members in $1,750 but that does not include airfare. Youth staff are between the ages of 18 and 25. Adult staff are 26 years old and older. The adult staff fee which also does not include airfare is 1,950. Also the staff fee does not include a touring package. This is standard procedure for WSJ staff. The participant fee is going to be 3,525 it may change slightly but that price is definitely cheaper than the participant fee for the 2007 WSJ. This participant fee applies to adult leaders who attend as Troop leaders and to all youth going as part of a scouting unit.
Another thing is that the BSA will be releasing more information about this event during its May 2009 National ANnual Meeting. Also sometime in May the BSA should have a WSJ 2011 jamboree website up and running.
Until more information is known that is all I have for the first update. Hope to see you in Sweden.
I am also looking for Scouts and Scouters from around the World to share stories regarding there previous jamboree experience. This will be used to promote what a World Scout Jamboree is really about.
