With the size of our troop, we will likely be taking two troops to the Jamboree, same as we did in 2013.  All current first year scouts will be eligible to attend by 2017.  So, I encourage you to signup and claim a spot.  Our troop website has photos and videos from the 2010 and 2013 Jamborees which help tell the story, and you can reference the 2013 Jamboree troop information pages under the Jamboree link on our menu.
 
There are two great videos to look at: a teaser, and a more in depth look.
