The friendships, experiences and stories of the 2001 National Scout Jamboree will be long remembered by all those who were fortunate to attend.

Scouting's biggest event, held July 23-August 1, 2001, at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia, gave the Order of the Arrow the chance to provide service to Scouting and showcase its programs. Over 500 Arrowmen served on OA support staff for the Jamboree, in addition to the countless Arrowmen who served as troop leaders with their council contingents, or on other Jamboree support staff positions.

Whether you were at the Jamboree or not, you can discover more about the OA's involvement at the Jamboree by reading the following personal memories and comments.

  • The American Indian Village - Within a large dance arbor or under colorful tents, Jamboree participants worked on Indian Lore merit badge, learned how to dance, create crafts, and construct regalia, while studying the lore of the American Indians.
  • The Outdoor Adventure Place (TOAP) - An outdoor skills area where Jamboree participants learned about "Leave No Trace" camping, built teamwork through participation in challenge events, sampled outdoor cooking, and enjoyed great adventure in the outdoors.
  • Scoutopia - Through a state-of-the-art interactive multimedia show, Jamboree participants were given the opportunity to make Scouting's values come alive in their hearts and minds.
  • The OA Service Corps - Over 150 Arrowmen specifically assigned to support the 2001 National Scout Jamboree had the opportunity to provide meaningful service to Scouting while enjoying great fellowhsip and fun.
  • A Visitor's Perspective - An Arrowman's impressions on visiting his first Jamboree.
  • 2001 OA Jamboree Photo Gallery - See dozens of Arrowmen in action across the Jamboree.
