There is so much to Scouting, it’s hard to do it all — even in a lifetime!
The 2013 National Jamboree offers a great way to see a slice of everything that Scouting has to offer. The focal point of this event is the collection of exhibits and displays that give Scouts and Venturers a wide-ranging view of the multitude of programs being offered.
You can be a part of this survey of Scouting! Below are 24 different exhibits you can support by joining the jamboree staff:
