New Assistant Scoutmaster for the 2013 National Jamboree

With all the hoopla around the 100th Anniversary of Scouting, I often wondered what it’d be like to attend a National Jamboree.  This wasn’t something I ever knew about as a kid, and the only exposure I’ve had since was from a neighbor boy who went in 2010.  He had lots of great things to say about the experience – so much that I thought if the opportunity ever came up to go as an adult leader, I’d seriously consider doing it.

Well… an opportunity came up.  And…yes, I seriously considered it.  I sent in an application back in March, completed a lengthy interview in April and found out today, that I was selected to be a 3rd Assistant Scoutmaster for the 2013 Jamboree!  Woo Hoo!!  I’m not exactly sure what I’ve gotten myself in to, but it’s definitely exciting.  I will be working with three other leaders who have done this 4 other times.  Not to mention that I’ll get to go with my own two sons who will be 16 that summer…and… it’s at a brand new location that looks WAY awesome!!  Check it out from this YouTube video:
