1.0 OverviewThe New Hampshire / Daniel Webster Council 2007 Jamboree will be at Gunstock Ski Area. This event only takes place every four years. It is a great oppurtunity for scouts from Hanover to see scouts from across the state. We are also expecting scouts from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine and Quebec!
2.1 DescriptionWe will meet at the Community Center early Saturday morning and drive to the Gunstock Ski Area. After registration and attending the opening ceremony we will set up our campsite and proceed to the many activities available at the Jamboree. Events and activities include a climbing wall, rope bridge, kayak, canoe, fishing, BBs, BMX bikes, Native American Games, knots, orienteering, COPE courses, and much more. Lunch on Saturday will be by indivdual scout, so bring a bag lunch you can eat without returning to the campsite. Saturday dinner will be by patrol cooking, as will Sunday breakfast.
There is a show and fireworks on Saturday evening.
