K2BSA 2023 National Jamboree Team Application

I have had many emails regarding recruitment of the 2023 K2BSA Staff at the National Jamboree (July 16-29, 2023). While the operation plan is not fully solidified at this point, I wanted to start to collect applications so I can fill the staff and leadership positions and see what additional competencies we can bring to The Summit.

Please read and review the full information, pricing, and policies regarding serving on the National Jamboree Staff (JST).

The K2BSA Application does not guarantee you a position on the JST, but it will start the necessary dialog for the selection process. As well, there are steps that you need to complete on your own in the JST registration process and council approvals that determine whether I will see you in the hiring queue.

Please only complete the staffing application if you are planning on registering as JST or have already registered. I hope your interest in serving on the JST goes beyond the scope of K2BSA, but we’d be grateful to have us as your first selection! National Jamborees are an amazing experience as Staff and we’ll be having a lot of fun finally being able to return to The Summit!

K2BSA Operation at National Jamboree 2023

There has been a lot of interest in the upcoming National Jamboree located at The Summit in West Virginia next year, and indeed there will be a K2BSA operation at the event.  We are working on preliminary details of the operation while the National Jamboree Staff get the staff registration open to all.  We are all excited to get back to The Summit and share the magic of Amateur Radio with Scouts and Scout Leaders.

If you are interested in serving on the staff of K2BSA, now is the time to finish getting that Extra Class license and go ahead and update your Youth Protect Training.  We will provide a link for prospective applicants to go through an interview process.  In the meantime keep an eye on the main site for the Jamboree and familiarize yourself with Jamboree Service Team.

 

National Jamboree 2021 Postponed

Communications were received yesterday from the 2021 National Jamboree Executive Leadership Team that the National Jamboree 2021 has been postponed due to the unpredictability of the pandemic and its impact on local councils.

The Boy Scouts of America is committed to the safety of all youth in our programs. Planning, preparations, and decisions regarding National Jamborees take place months, and even years, in advance. The unresolved issues surrounding the pandemic make it exceedingly difficult to plan and prepare for a premiere event of this size in a way that continues to keep the safety of Scouts, volunteers, staff, and communities at the forefront.

Thank you to all the volunteers that signed up to be on staff at the K2BSA Amateur Radio Station!  We look forward to the rescheduling of this event and your continued support of our operations at the National Jamborees.

Jamboree 2021 Call for Operators

We’re getting ready for the largest Scout gathering in the United States coming Summer 2021.  We’re looking for operators to be on staff at the K2BSA demonstration station and Radio Merit Badge area.

The operations plan is in the works.  This time we’re going to be focusing on demonstrating Voice and CW operations on HF/VHF/UHF and satellite.  As well, we will most likely be doing Radio Merit Badge, Morse Code Interpreter Strip, balloon launch(es), and Amateur Radio Direction Finding.

If you think you’re interested in serving on staff at the National Jamboree, please consider applying on the national site by navigating here then fill out our survey here to get in line for interviews.  If you are not sure but still want to interview, please submit the survey.  Training for your position will start towards the end of 2020, but apply early to ensure your inclusion in this event!
