Now is the time to make your summer camp plans for 2015! The Scouts that came to Camp Post this summer enjoyed swimming in the pool and kayaking at Lake Alan Henry. Horseback riding and mountain biking will both be available in 2015. We also have expended our older scout program and new backpacking routes are available for the Pecos Packer program. If you would like to attend a South Plains Council camp in next summer, use this FORM and register today for 2015. If you joined us at camp this summer, let us know what you think. Please follow this link to fill out a Camp Survey from the national office. Help not just our Council but every council develop their program and make camps better for your Scouts.
2015 World Scout Jamboree
In 2015, more than 30,000 Scouts and leaders from 161 countries around the world will converge on Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan, for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.
The event will provide opportunities to raise awareness about global issues, explore the environment, participate in community service, make friends from around the world, and deepen understanding of developments in science and technology. The world jamboree is a unique opportunity for participants to experience an exciting program of activities, including: Global Development Village, City of Science, Cross Road of Culture, and the Peace Program.
Participants will live and learn with fellow Scouts from around the world. They will be housed in tents along with the BSA contingent but will soon venture out to mingle with tens of thousands of people for two weeks of activities and adventure. That’s right, a world fellowship exercise on an enormous scale!
We don’t want any of our Scouts to miss out on this life-changing experience. This is where we need your help. Attached are two graphics for your use on your council’s website. We would hope that you help us promote this outstanding event by placing the World Jamboree logo on your website and linking it to www.scouting.org/worldjamboree. Thank you in advance for your help.
