Let's learn a bit about the Summit Bechtel Reserve, the site of the upcoming 24th World Scouts Jamboree.
Brian rejoins us to talk about the Summit Bechtel Reserve, Boy Scouts of America's newest high adventure base. This facility, funded my a multi-million dollar grant from a number of major corporations, was the site of BSA's 2017 National Jamboree, and will also be the site of the 2019 24th World Scouts Jamboree, which is being co-hosted by Scouts Canada, Boy Scouts of America, and Asociación de Scouts de México.
Brian also recaps his experiences at the National Jamboree, and discusses why attending the upcoming World Jamboree is an opportunity that should not, if at all possible, be missed out on.
The first shout-out of the night goes to Travis Normand, who sent in a lengthy email inspired by our episode about Philmont. In it, he recapped his own experiences at Philmont, among other things, and then in such detail that it really only makes sense to invite him on to talk about it in a future episode.
And as always, a big thank you to the folks at Scouting Radio for rebroadcasting Scouting Stuff episodes to their worldwide Scouting audience. If you're listening to us on Scouting Radio right now, let us know; reach out and get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
