The ultimate event is a Scouts life is to attend a Jamboree. This year Scouts and third year Cubs, will have the opportunity to attend the 12th Canadian Jamboree. CJ'13 will be held Camp Woods in Sylvan Lake, AB, which is 30km west of Red Deer.
The cost per participant is estimated to be $1,400. To help subsidize the cost, the Scout Troop will be hosting several fund raisers throughout the year which will include selling Scout Popcorn, Bottle Drives and E-waste drives. Youth interested in attending will need to submit a registration with a $100 non-refundable deposit by Oct 30. Youth will be selected to go based on their participation in Troop events and fundraisers.
An information package is available here for Scouts interested in going and their parents.
