When I went to the 1985 National Jamboree, there were three different places
we stayed in route.
The first was at Camp Tuckahoe, run by the York Adams Area Council in
Pennsylvania (I think the name of the nearby city was Dillsburg). This is
their summer camp. We stayed there on a saturday night (camp was diserted
otherwise) in a cabin. There were showers available. We ate dinner and
breakfast in the dining hall. After dinner, they opened up the trading post
where most of the troop bought something (pins, patches, T-shirts, etc...).
It was a beautiful camp to stay in. It was located about an hour from
Gettysburg (which was our destination the following day). We left Kalamazoo,
MI about 7:00 am EDT and arrived about 7ish that evening. I would suggest you
contact the council for more info (I don't have an address, but I think their
office is located in York, PA).
The second was some sort of dormatories located in College Park, MD. I can't
remember the name, but they were more dormatories. I seem to recall seeing
some sort of ad in scouting for something similar after getting back.
The third was Rickenbacher AFB near Columbus, OH. We stayed in some sort of
dormatories and ate at least one meal in the officers mess hall. I don't know
where to refer you to contact. This, as well as other military bases will put
scouts up for an evening in similar fashion. Mike Walton would probably have
more information on obtaining accomidations.
That's about all I can provide. I hope it give you an start.
