What’s the Plan?
Our contingent from the Denver Area Council will depart July 8th and tour east coast historic locations in NY, PA, & DC and then join the Jamboree for 10 days, returning on July 24th. Our contingent will include 8 Troops, each comprised of 36 Scouts and 4 Scouters, plus 3 Crew Patrols. We estimate the cost of this event to be $2,700 per scout. Extensive fund raising activity is planned in order to assist all Scouts to cover the costs. Scholarship support will be available on an individual situation basis.
The Denver Area Council is pleased to announce the following Scouters have been selected as Scoutmasters for our Contingent Troops: Scott Markowitz, Henry Dittmer, Jonathan Tarr, Rick White, Joe Black, Bob Bucklin, Jim Auslen, and Jason Pettis; our Venture Crew Advisers are Jeff Hartig and Jim Rooney.
