Jamboree Scout Meeting in Portland

On Saturday March 6, 2010 I had a Jamboree Meeting with about half of the staff for 50% for Sub camp 7. Sub camp 7 covers the Pacific Northwest. It Primarily Includes the States of Alaska, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Staff comes from as far north as Alaska and as far south as Tennessee to serve with this group for the coming 2010 National Jamboree.

The purpose of the meeting in Portland was basically a meeting to get together, meet the people you are going to be working with, and answer any questions you may have. I learned a lot about my role and what the expectations of a youth staff member are.

As a youth staff member you are expected to serve under any of the Subcamp departments or divisions on a as needed basis. You are basically there to fill in as needed. I know this may seem like a very boring job, or a job that does not have much to do, or a specific job description. The problem with the jamboree is that there is so much going on that there is always so much to do that if you are looking, able and willing there is always something that needs to be done.

That is all I know about the Jamboree for know. I get my medical form and Travel advisory in. My airline change my ticket without warning and I am still having to work through those issues but everything will work out in the end.

And once again, it is only a hour a week, at least that is what we should tell those starting out.

Updates, Medical Issues and Stuff

Sorry for missing the Last couple of Weeks in Regards to Adventure Base 100 Announcements, regular posts, and communications with my regular readers, it has been a very rough time for me. I have been experiencing some medical problems which made me miss a whole week of college. Missing a whole week of college put me seriously behind and I was not able to blog but now that I am on spring break, I will be able to catch up and hopefully blog on a regular basis.

Jamboree is coming up and I hope to provide more and more information as National Releases it but who knows, it seems that National is way behind when it comes to release of information in regards to the National Jamboree.

Well at least I only missed two Adventure Base 100 Stops, hopefully readers were able to get the information from other sources. Those two stops include the Tupelo, Mississippi February 20 and February 21 stop and the March 2 to March 6 stop in Houston, Texas.
