I saw the pamphlet....your local council should have them by now (that's
where he got his from); if not, write to the Jamboree Staff Service at the
national office and request one.
The process for Jamboree staff is simple: first, understand that ALL staff
pay for their participation. They pay the full staff fee, which may include
a regional fee if they are going to serve as part of a Regional/Area subcamp
The application is completed by you...please place enough information on the
application (or inclose a resume and picture in full Scout uniform) to help
the Regional staff to make a decision. Regions get first crack at you
(unless you send your application DIRECTLY to a national staff member); then
it is sent to national staff service and placed in a pool of "wannabees"
for each staff section to pull out....
The application is approved by your Council Staff person for the Jamboree or
by the Scout/Council Executive. They send it off (or you may) to the regional
office for selection.
If selected, you will receive a selection letter, followed by a bill for your
first payment. Failure to pay the first payment cuts you from the list and
a alternate selected in your place. You have to pay the full fee before you
will get Jamboree patch one, and you will then receive information on the
dress and uniforms and additional Jamboree-related memorbilia to purchase.
Remember that you are a staff person...don't make plans (unless you're in
*real* good with the Camp Director) to work any place else the summer of
'93. Most Councils won't hire you...and all will take a dim view of you
leaving *their* camp for the Jamboree (funny, isn't it: they should be jumping
up and down and getting you on their staff for however long or short the season
is....). The staff reports two days BEFORE the first bus pulls in and leaves
up to five days AFTER the last bus pulls out.
Yes, Ft. A.P. Hill is the Jamboree site...the pamphlet also mentions the same
dribble every Jamboree has...the same events...the same everything...there
is no patch depicted, but we can assume that the illustration with the theme and
the Scouts crossing the bridge will be a part of the patch...
Again, the information IS coming into your Council office...or you may write to
the Jamboree Staff Service at the National Office...
..and now, back to your regular discussion!
