Very preliminary info is out now, I expect to recieve more info at the
national meeting this month and at Top Hands in August. Key information
should be in the council service center around Jan 1996. Then the local
council can begin forming a committee to plan the trip and select Troop
To begin planning ask around and find out what your local troop contingent
cost in 1993 I have heard of them from $600 to a $1000.
The dates are usually the last day of July or first week of August. I do not
have my info with me on Nationals dates yet each council has their own dates
depending on travel and side trips.
Age has been 13 by August 1 of the year of Jambo. This could change and
some councils do have stricter guidelines.
Ask your local council volunteers and professional staff as they will know
the past history of your council Philmont trips.
