2011 World Scout JamboreeDo you ever wonder what Scouting is like in another country? The Western Region is forming an OA contingent to attend the 2011 World Scout Jamboree in Sweden. Over 100 countries and 40,000 co-ed Scouts will gather together from July 27 to August 7, 2011 to share in international friendship and adventure for personal growth and development.

Imagine camping next to a Scout unit from Poland, eating lunch with Scouts from Chile, trading uniforms and insignia with Scouts from Greece, and playing games with Scouts from Thailand. The possibilities are endless and the memories are forever!

Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience to attend the World Scout Jamboree with the Order of the Arrow! Please promote this at your next chapter meeting, and pass it along to other members! The cost of the event is $3,525 (plus a $10 non-refundable application fee). The basic package includes travel from the assigned gateway city, all meals, unit and patrol equipment, and buses for ground transportation to/from the Jamboree site. Cost does not include travel to or from the gateway city. Scouts must be born between July 25, 1993 and July 27, 1997.

If you would like to attend the event and will be over 18 at the start of the Jamboree, consider signing up for International Service Team (IST). More details can be found in the attached brochures.
