2021 National Jamboree Policy
It is the policy of the National Jamboree that all Jamboree Service Team applicants must:
• Have a current BSA membership or international equivalent.
• Complete Youth Protection training for both Scouts BSA and Venturing programs (two separate courses) within one year of jamboree. All Service Team Members must complete regardless of age.
• Be able to arrive on-site at the jamboree up to one week before the jamboree (as deemed necessary by the service director over the area selected to serve).
• Be at least 16 years of age by the first day of the jamboree.
• Submit all registration fees online per the published payment schedule.
• Complete any jamboree-specific training, as deemed necessary by the service director of the area selected to serve.
• File a BSA Annual Health and Medical Record. Instructions to submit the record will be published online by mid-2020.
• Meet the medical requirements.
If accepted in a Jamboree Service Team position, I agree I will:
- Pay the Jamboree fee on or before the payment deadline(s).
- Provide my own transportation to and from the Jamboree
- Provide a complete official health and medical record with a physical exam signed by a certified and licensed health-care provider-physician (MD or DO), nurse practitioner, or physician assistant, dated no more than 1 year before the last day of the Jamboree
- Obtain required immunizations
- Review the following risk factors with my certified and licensed health-care provider:
Factors include but are not limited to: excessive body weight, heart disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, seizures, lack of appropriate immunizations, asthma, allergies/anaphylaxis, muscular/skeletal injuries, psychiatric/psychological and emotional difficulties.
There is no reason why my health would limit full Jamboree participation, or I will document all limitations on the BSA Health & Medical Record
