The Order of the Arrow is recruiting 700 youth Arrowmen to serve on the Project 2013 corps at the jamboree which includes the Jamboree Trek Guides, the OA Service Corps, and the Day of Service Guides. The corps will provide support to the 2013 National Scout Jamboree working in subcamps, program areas and at the arena shows.
The Order will also host the OA Indian Village providing an opportunity to engage Scouts in the American Indian culture including regalia and dance of tribes from around the country. In the evenings, the Order will lead the staff recreation area providing evening events, programs, and recreation for the jamboree staff.
The Jamboree Trek is an all-day adventure beginning at the troop campsite. On each of five days of the Jamboree, 200 troops, each led by a Guide, will take a four-hour, four-mile hike to the top of Garden Ground Mountain, with interpretive program points along the way. The troops will have lunch at the top, followed by an afternoon of games and demonstrations including the OA Indian Village, Buckskin Games, Civil War presentation, etc. The day ends with a barbeque and bonfire, followed by a bus trip back to camp.
The OA Service Corps creates an environment conducive to servant leadership, cheerful service and a memorable experience while facilitating the needs of the 2013 National Scout Jamboree. The OA Service Corps lives the obligation daily and represents the true meaning of servant leadership. The 2013 National Scout Jamboree is our time to show the nation that we are fulfilling our obligation and are putting its meaning into practice. The OA Service Corps will support many of the program and administrative areas at the Jamboree.
The Jamboree Day of Service is where each Scout will participate in a day of service, either in the local community, in the National River and, perhaps, on the Summit site. On each of five days of the Jamboree, 200 troops will leave their campsites for a project lasting most of the day. The Day of Service Guides will help facilitate and provide leadership to the many projects undertaken by the Scouts.
The Order of the Arrow will be taking the lead on providing evening recreation opportunities for all jamboree staff. The recreation staff will host cook outs, game nights and will plan fun activities each night.
