July 19-28, 2017 – National Jamboree
IMPORTANT:  Jamboree registration is INDIVIDUAL.  This is not a Troop organized event. Scouts register and pay NCAC DIRECTLY on the NCAC website. Participants are advised to visit the NCAC website and the National Website regularly to keep up on complete event details.  Program information will come from Council… not the Troop.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • ATTENDANCE – If you plan to attend the National Jamboree, please let us know.
  • PAYMENT – A payment of $512 is due to NCAC on June 30, 2016.  See Payment Remittance Slip and visit the NCAC website for details.
  • CAMPERSHIP –  (financial assistance money) is now available.  Don’t hesitate to ask!! Because Scoutmasters must complete the first section of the application, if you are interested in applying, please contact Rich Eitzel prior to June 30, 2016.
  • LEADERSHIP – Rich Eitzel has been selected to attend as an ASM.  There will be one Scoutmaster, 2 Assistant Scoutmasters, and an ASM aged 18-25 for every provisional troop of 36 scouts.  Although it is likely Mr. Eitzel will be placed with our scouts’ provisional troop, it is not guaranteed.  Scout may be attending with NCAC SM/ASMs they do not know.  All adult leadership has been pre-screened and pre-selected.  Additional adult attendees are not permitted.
