Adventure Program Tokens

There is a lot to do at the Jamboree and the Adventure Program areas are a highlight. While these areas can handle many participants, there are practical capacity limits especially for Aerial activities. An Aerial Sports Token or Big Zip Token will be given to each youth to insure every Scout/Venturer gets to experience one aerial activity. All other Adventure Program areas (aquatics, climbing, extreme sports, shooting sports) are open to all youth participants to use as often as they wish.

There are also times Adventure program areas are forced closed due to weather (i.e. a lightning risk). To be fair to a Scout that has waited in line, but could not experience the activity, a separate token has been created. Any Scout/Venturer who has waited in line but did not get to do the program due to unforeseen circumstances will receive an Adventure Pass Token. The Adventure Pass Token will allow them to jump to the front of the line at another time when the station is open. If a participant receives an Adventure Pass it may be redeemed at any Adventure Program area, even if different than where it was received.

Big Zip Token


Units will receive six (6) Big Zip tokens, the Big Zip is a highlight area but there is a capacity limit. Unit adult and youth leaders can choose how the six Big Zip tokens are distributed. Venture crews will receive a proportional allocation.

Adventure Pass

Tokens will be distributed by staff for the following reasons:

Closure of the station due to weather:
Alerts received from the Summit safety staff dictate program closures.

Personal Situations:
A Staff member may distribute a token to a Scout/ Venturer who for some other reason needs to stop the activity (fear of heights, not feeling well).

Aerial Sports Token

Every Scout or Venturer not receiving a Big Zip token will get an Aerial Sports token which will permit them to participate in The Canopy, Gateway Zip, Legacy Zip, Action Point - Canopy Tour, Action Point - Challenge Course, or The Ropes. This token can only be used one time.
