In just under two weeks we will have our first Montana Council Jamboree Contingent gathering! In addition to sharing the details of the Jamboree trip next year, your leaders have a fun time planned. Upon arrival, you will find out which of our two Troops you will be in and who your Troop Leaders are. At least one parent/guardian is encouraged to attend the Parent’s Meeting on Saturday afternoon to answer questions. Here’s a brief rundown of what you’ll need to bring:
* Tent (you can share a tent with another Scout if you arrange it with them)
* Sleeping bag/gear
* Class A uniform (complete) and 2 Class B shirts (with outdoor shoes/boots)
* Your current BSA Health & Medical Record (to keep with you)
* $20 for food (covers the Scout/Venturer and his/her parents)
Scouts and Venturers will camp with their Troop in the main parade grounds. Parents are welcome to stay at K-M Scout Ranch and will have a nearby separate camping area. Meals will be prepared for us and served in the dining hall. If you have food allergies or anything else we need to be aware of, please send us an e-mail or call one of the Scoutmasters.
