WSJ 2011 Update 2

Here is some more information regarding the 2011 World Scout Jamboree that is going to be held in Sweden. This update is from the almost monthly BSA International Division Newsletter. This newsletter can be subscribed to by e-mailing the request to So here is the update:

World Scout Jamboree 2011
International Commissioner Wayne Perry recently announced that promotional materials for the 2011 World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) will be released during the Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA’s) National Annual Meeting in May. This will include the official launch of the BSA’s 2011 WSJ Web site and online registration materials. There will be a special elective held at the National Annual Meeting for International Representatives (IRs). The session will include a presentation about the jamboree site by the jamboree director, special guest Göran Hägerdal. A live demonstration of how to register online will be included in this elective session. All applicants – youth, leaders, and staff (International Service Team members) – will be required to register online. Join us for a jumpstart on this registration process.
National Annual Meeting
Elective at the National Annual Meeting: Sweden in 2011. This elective, presented by BSA’s International Committee, will focus primarily on promotional plans for the 2011 WSJ in Sweden. Meet the BSA’s promotional team and members of the Swedish Scout Association, who will share the most up‐to‐date information regarding site and program preparations. In addition to jamboree plans, learn about other international travel opportunities available for members of your local council.
I just have to include the National Annual Meeting as part of the update because if you are going to the meeting and have the time to slip in the Sweden in 2011 Elective then I would highly suggest that you do so.

I hope to see some of you in Sweden in 2011. I just submitted my Adult Contingent Leader Application for the event and am hoping that Western Region will approve it so I can participate.

Yours in Scouting Service
