Uniform Requirements

There are two types of uniforms. One is the official national jamboree uniform. This uniform will be worn while traveling to and from the National Scout Jamboree, while on tour in Washington D.C. and Williamsburg, and at selected events at the Jamboree such as the Arena Shows. The other uniform is the activity uniform, sometimes referred to as the "Class B" uniform. This will be worn mostly during the day at the jamboree while participating in many of the activities such as motocross, pioneering, trapshooting, archery etc. Class B uniform will also be worn at Busch Gardens. Scouts will be expected to use the laundry buckets provided by the Troop.

Packing for the jamboree requires splitting uniforms and equipment between that which is packed in a duffel bag and sent via truck a week before the jamboree and that which is taken with the Scouts on the pre-jamboree tour in their day packs. Note: put the Scout’s name on everything!
