Not going to the 2013 National Scout Jamboree as a participant? No problem.

You should visit the jamboree and sample the activities anyway. Yep, you read that right.

Whether you’re a Scout or not, you’ll be able to get a taste of almost all of the activities in 2013. That means you can go zip lining, skateboarding, bike riding and so much more at the Summit Center.

The Summit Center will also be full of places to eat and shop, which makes it a perfect place for Scouts to visit family and friends who want to see what the Summit is all about.

The arena shows will be held in the area as well.  If you haven’t seen over 80,000 Scouts and visitors in one place, here’s your chance.  You won’t soon forget it, either.

The Summit Center isn’t just for visitors.  It will be open for participants in the evening after everyone else leaves and all of the activities will be available, as well. At past jamborees, exhibits and activities shut down in the afternoon. At the Summit, most jamboree attractions will be open to Scouts until 8 p.m., after the visitors have left.

“It’s like being able to go to a theme park after it’s closed,” said Mike Patrick, general manager of the Summit.
