Lessons Learned from Prior Jamboree’s Do not wait until the last minute to get started …………. On any thing!!! Plan before proceeding, it will save time and aggravation. Seek advice from former Jamboree personnel. We already made the mistakes. Do not assume the kids know everything. They usually do but they play dumb! When giving instructions practice HUA “heard, understood, and acknowledged”. Be sure the duty roster is posted and the service crews know who they are, and what time they are to report. Have the SPL do this before the Scouts leave camp, and each night. Post a tenting diagram on the bulletin board so you can find the scouts in the morning who do not report for early food pick up. Stoves can not be placed under the tarp or within three foot of a tent. Allow only the cooking crew in the cooking area while preparing and serving meals. Keep your food area and food boxes clean. Be sure that food boxes are returned promptly. Verify after every cooked meal that each LP tank valve is turned off. Maintain tight camp discipline, this will result in less maintenance that you will have to do. Running through the camp, Frisbee, football, and horseplay in the camp and camp vicinity often results in torn guy lines, ripped tents, or beat up scouts. Smile and have fun. Murphy will always show up, but we “will” adapt and overcome.
