So you're thinking about the Canadian Jamboree? Well that's great! A week full of fun, friends, and camping await! What more could you want!? But before you consider signing up for what is sure to be the best part of your summer, you must ask yourself, are you ready? Are you ready to travel back in time? To be part of prehistoric adventures? To become an explorer? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the Canadian Scout Jamboree is most certainly for you!
Travel to the four worlds where you will discover exciting activities to challenge you and your Patrol. Be prepared to hike near glaciers, dig for bones, raid the castle, and dive for buried treasure! The challenging and exciting CJ'13 program combines some of the best activities from previous Jamborees, with several new ones that are sure to become favourites.
Join thousands of Scouts at Camp Woods on the shores of Sylvan Lake, Alberta for a week of fun and excitement that you'll never forget. Not to mention all the new friends you'll make! Scouts will be coming from all corners of Canada and the world to experience this once and a lifetime event.
Oh yeah, bring a leader or two with you – they'll have just as much fun as you will!
