Anyone going? Anyone working? I'm working, and my son is going as a Venturer. I'm so excited!

My son just moved from cubbies into Boy Scouts earlier this year. He is just spent a week at our local camp and next weekend he leaves for Danielle Boone. No Jambo this year, may be the next one.

I think it's easier to reason with a CHIMPANZEE than to reason with a tween/early teen!

My DS is going as a Venture scout too this year - camp F813c. He's been in scouts since 1st grade and was a the 2010 Jamboree too.

While he's in WV for 10 days, I'll be in WDW for 5 1/2!

ETA: Is your son taking neckerchiefs? The venturers are next to/in with the international scouts and I've heard they're big into neckerchief trading. DS has a ton of CSP's from boy scouts and he loves patch trading but he doesn't have any of neckerchiefs. I'm thinking we'll hit the scout shop within the next few weeks.

My son is in F610A, and I'll be in Echo Camp.

No, I didn't know about neckerchiefs. He has patches for trading, I'll have to have him look into the neckerchiefs too. Thanks for the heads up!

This is the first one my DH hasn't attended since before we had kids.

My son is going. He is leaving with his troop on July 11th. They are touring DC and have a whitewater rafting trip planned before Jambo.

Sweet! DS's troop toured DC before the 2010 Jamboree. He had a great time! I hope your DS has lots of fun.

Between this week of Scout Camp and a trip to Philmont in Aug, we have no extra weeks to go. Dh is already regretting committing to the Philmont trip as our Disney vacation may be cut short this year with him taking so much time off for Scouting this summer!

Oh well, it is all fun and the boys will enjoy it.

Next time I think we will use some time for Jamboree.

DH & DS are both working Jambo this time. DH worked last one when DS#2 went as a scout. And DS#1 went to the Jambo preceding that one.

Actually DH also went to Jambo when he was a scout (several years ago).

Both DSs had a tour before getting to camp. NYC, Washington DC, Annapolis, Boston, Philadelphia, Gettysburg, plus others, I think.
