Registering for the National Jamboree
Let’s get started on your path to the 2017 National Jamboree
Download the Central Florida Councils Jamboree Registation Packet (Download size is 3.5 mb, it may take several minutes).
o This packet contains step by step instructions w/screen shots to enable you to navigate the national registration process.
o Once registration with national is completed successfully, you will forward any forms printed during the application process along with your $100 deposit to Traci Shephard at the council office.
o Once we've received notice from National, a copy of your printed form from the registration process and your deposit, your spot in the contingent will be confirmed.
Traci Shepherd at the council office will be your primary contact for any registration questions you may have. Her e-mail address is Traci.Shepherd@cflscouting.org and she can be contacted via the main number (407-889-4403) at council or if you have an item to fax to her it can be done via 407-889-4406.
All registrations are on a "first-come, first-serve" basis, there are 144 spots for scouts and 16 spots (2 crews of 8) for Venturers. Your attention to the application process should not wait as it’s expected they will fill fast.
All applications will be accepted and should the number of applicants exceed the number of spots a waiting list will be maintained. Should the sign-ups/recruiting show that more troops or venturing patrols are needed, the Jamboree Team will apply to get more.
