The Lead Scoutmaster will be Mr. Sheldon Freidenreich of Highland Park, NJ and other leaders will be announced in the near future. Two Jamboree Troops have been allocated for this Contingent, with each Troop having 36 youth and four adults. Sign up now to reserve your place!
This Contingent will gather at the Forestburg Scout Reservation, Forestburgh, NY on Sunday, July 7, 2013. Over the next days, Scouts will build teamwork and effective patrols, earn Merit Badges while participating in Scout Summer Camp, and complete pre-Jamboree training experiences. Travel to the Jamboree will be by coach bus on Sunday–Monday, July 14–15. The Jamboree runs for 10 days at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, from Monday, July 15 through Wednesday, July 24, 2013 when Scouts will be brought up the East Coast, with drop-offs and connections made for their return home, reaching the NY/NJ area that day. Those traveling to New England will overnight in Highland Park, NJ with a bus to Brookline, MA on July 25.
