You Ready to Make History?
The Sequoia Council is recruiting youth members
for its National Jamboree Troop and Venture Patrol. Are you ready to
help make history? Join us as we travel in July 2013 to the Summit

will be lead by a team of fully trained leaders.
The Summit Bechtel Reserve is BSA’s newest high
adventure base and the permanent home of the National Jamboree. Ten
thousand acres of camp surrounded by 70,000 acres of National Park
land will offer world class rock climbing, mountain biking, and
rafting opportunities in West Virginia’s New River Gorge.
The 2013 Jamboree offers not just one, but 6
High Adventure Camps including; BMX, mountain biking, and
