T-minus three days and counting… Time to Go Big. Get Wild.
And ClassB will be there when it happens!
After a much anticipated wait, the 2013 National Scout Jamboree
is almost here!
In less than a week, Scouters from all over the country will gather in Mount Hope, West Virginia to celebrate the new permanent home of the Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Family Scout Reserve. The Boy Scouts of America promise that the new site will play host to some of the most exciting experiences ever offered at a Jamboree before.
This 10,000+ acre facility has been carefully designed to include some of the most impressive high adventure activities in the world. Participants will look forward to 10 days of: zip lines, canopy tours, rock climbing and bouldering, skate boarding, mountain biking and bmx, shooting sports, archery and whitewater rafting, to name a few. From extreme sports and competitions to exhibits and stadium shows, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
Our friends from QBSA Radio
will be “blastin’ stuff atcha” through live broadcasts beginning at 5:30 am every day. Tune in locally to 98.3 FM or download the free app, TuneIn Radio.
As for us, we have always enjoyed attending the Jamboree as visitors; but, this will be our first year going as exhibitors! There will be TWO ClassB tents centrally located at the heart of all the excitement, in Summit Center.
One tent will include our famous carnival style Toss N’ Win game
, offering players some awesome Jamboree swag for prizes. For you avid patch collectors, we have collaborated with several other attending vendors to create an awesome event patch set (sneak peak at left). You will have to embark on a bit of a scavenger hunt to collect them all… and you have to play to win ours!
We’d love to see how you arrange your totem pole! If you get an entire set, take a photo and upload it to our Facebook
page, where we will also be running contests to blow out some of the Jamboree souvenirs we’re giving away.
The second tent will include screen printing
stations for participants to tag their shirts with officially licensed commemorative Jamboree designs. If you plan to attend, stop by for a visit and bring a t-shirt
Eleven of our staff members are super excited to be attending the 2013 National Jamboree and can’t wait to report back! We will be keeping you posted on all the fun we’re having right here on our blog
. Be sure to bookmark the page and check back with us throughout the Jamboree!
If you are planning to attend, leave us a comment to tell us what contingent you’re with and we’ll see you at the Summit! :)
