All Skill Levels Welcome At The 2013 Jamboree

Many people are familiar with the icons representing difficulty levels at a ski resort. You know, those little colored shapes that indicate how hard a particular slope is to descend?

All the activities in the Adventure Areas at the 2013 National Jamboree will be much the same; each will be rated with the equivalents of green circles (beginner), blue squares (intermediate), and black diamonds (advanced).

What does this mean?

Well, it means that if there’s an activity that you’ve never tried before (say, stand-up paddleboarding , for example), there’s no need to be an expert before you take the paddle in your hands. You can start with beginner exercises and work your way up.

It also means that if there’s a jamboree activity at which you’re already an expert, you don’t need to waste your time with beginner lessons, and can jump right into a more advanced experience. Check out this video about how this relates to mountain biking at the Summit.

At the 2013 jamboree, it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner, an expert or anywhere between- there are activities that will perfectly suit your hunger to go big and get wild.

Which jamboree activity are you most looking forward to the most? Which are you hoping to try for the first time? Let us know in the comments.
