Blog2017 National Jamboree Passport Program

Posted on June 15, 2017 by

Throughout the years, the program for many of our National Jamborees has included the opportunity for youth and unit leaders to earn an award for their participation. As its name implies, the participation award is intended for those attendees who visit and see most of what the Jamboree has to offer.Jamboree Participation Award Patch

A variety of forms have been used for this award including small patch segments to place around the official jamboree patch and, in 2013, a special patch with various colored ribbons. For 2017, the participation award will be a special version of the official Summit Bechtel Reserve arrowhead patch with a silver mylar border and a small jamboree emblem superimposed on the bottom area of the patch.

The requirements to earn this award are integrated with the new Jamboree Passport program sponsored by the Pulitzer Center, Scouting Alumni & Friends (SAF), and the Summit Bechtel Reserve Staff Association (SBRSA). The purpose of the participation award and the Jamboree Passport program for the 2017 National Jamboree is to ensure participants are able to experience all aspects of the jamboree. This includes attending the Summit shows, visiting various exhibits throughout the jamboree, and attending one of the faith-based services that will be held during the jamboree.
