2021 National Scout Jamboree Jersey Shore Council Contingent

The Jersey Shore Council plans to send Two Male Scout Troops (36 Scouts and 4 Leaders) and One-half Female Scout Troop (18 scouts and 2 Leaders)

Once space is filled, a waiting list will be started. If space opens, those on the waiting list will be contacted in the order of their application.

Cost

The current estimated Jamboree cost is $1,845.00. The Council Jamboree committee does their best to deliver value when planning for the Jamboree, however, there are costs that are beyond the control of the Jersey Shore Council. For example, transportation contracts cannot be signed until much closer to the actual Jamboree departure date and prices may change. Costs may also be affected if the Jamboree contingent of 2 Troops is less than full.
