Staffing The Spiritual Side Of The Jamboree

A Scout is reverent.

It’s how we end the Scout Law, and let’s face it: After the adventure, fellowship, and connection with a beautiful place like the Summit, we’re all going to want to spend some time in reflection.

Worship services are an important part of the national jamboree, and it takes volunteers just like you to staff the Chaplain Corps to put it all together.

We’ll need two types of staff:

  • Chaplains — They’ll do all the scheduling, arranging, and officiating of the formal worship services. They’re also at the jamboree to provide counseling and peform other assignments in case of emergency. In addition, chaplain staff help uphold the spiritual ethos at Scout campsites, leading by example.
  • Support Staff — The chaplains can’t do it alone, and these non-clergy staff help with all of the above.

If you’re interested in joining the Chaplain Corps at the 2013 jamboree, be sure to check out the staff application.
