2013 National Jamboree Information Sources

The 2013 National Jamboree is in full swing.  This year Jamboree is pretty high tech.

AT&T has charging stations for scout and staff electronics. There are several cell towers throughout camp. Where else could a scout camp and have WiFi?

There is an android Jamboree app to help scouts choose where to go next…as well as scoutmaster to track their scouts.

Scouts with cell phones can text “scout” to 34763 to receive Jamboree texts…such as the heat advisory and suggested fluid intake (Green Flag =1/2 to 1/2qt of water per hour, Red Flag = 1qt of water per hour and limit activity but still have fun).

Those with Twitter accounts can get all the trending Jamboree news at #2013Jambo. Boys Life and Trading Post have photo contests or scavenger hunts using Twitter. And a wealth of photos are also hitting Instagram.
