This weekend is a great time to meet the Scouts & Scouters from Orange County and Los Angeles, who are going to the 2013 National Jamboree. The Shakedown event will be an important opportunity to check out your gear, test the leadership in your Unit, and compare notes about new ways of preparing for the first National Jamboree at The Summit. It is an opportunity to get your campsite set up Jamboree style, participate in a Conservation Service Project, test the zip line and rock climbing walls, participate in Team-Building Games, get introductions to Merit Badges at the Merit Badge Midway, sign-up for the Venture and Scout Ranges, sing and yell at the Spirit Booth, enjoy a variety of Unit & Patrol activities, be blown away at the Saturday night Arena Show, and be reverent at the Interfaith Worship Service. Finally, before packing up camp, we will gather our 12 Units in front of the Albertsons refrigerated trailer, looking sharp in our field uniforms, for a campwide 2013 Shakedown photo.The Shakedown training weekend should: Help the youth get to know one another. Emphasize the place of the Scout Oath and Scout La w at Shakedown and Jamboree.
