2001 National Scout Jamboree
The National Scout Jamboree will be held July 23-August 1, 2001, at Fort
A.P. Hill, Bowling Green, Virginia. The Jamboree will provide over 500 Arrowmen an opportunity to serve Scouting and showcase Order of the Arrow programs.
The Jamboree is Scouting's largest program event, with over 40,000 Scouts
and Scouters expected for the 2001 Jamboree. The Order is proud to be a
major part of this event that takes place every four years.
Arrowmen will be active in four main areas for the Jamboree:
- The American Indian Village
will consist of a model campsite and dance
arbor where American Indian dance, crafts, regalia construction and games
will be demonstrated. The Village will also teach the Indian Lore merit badge.
- The Outdoor Adventure Place (TOAP)
is an outdoor skills area where
Jamboree participants will learn about "Leave No Trace" camping,
build teamwork through participation in challenge events, sample outdoor
cooking, and see Scouting's entire inventory of outdoor camping gear.
is an event that centers on providing all attendees the
opportunity to visually make the Scout Law come alive in their hearts and
minds via a state-of-the-art interactive show.
- The OA Service Corps will provide
over 150 Arrowmen the opportunity to
provide meaningful service to the National Scout Jamboree. Examples of
services that will be performed by the Service Corps include ushering at all
arena shows, program and administrative support, flag ceremonies, youth
recreation opportunities, and VIP guides.
In addition to directly supporting the Jamboree programs, many Arrowmen will
serve as troop leaders with their council contingents, or on other Jamboree
support staffs. There is no OA Rendezvous Show being held at the 2001
Through many areas, the Order of the Arrow
will help make the Jamboree a success!
