My council refuses to include me in their contingent unless I am willing to commit double the time and triple the money. They make a 3-week trip of it, and tour around Boston, NY, DC, etc. They stay in fancy hotels, and eat at fancy restaurants. Besides the money, ($3000 x 3) I don't want to tour the country with 700 boy scouts and without my wife.
My sons will be 13 & 15 at the time of the Jamboree, and we have been planning on this one for several years. How do I get us registered? Are there youth staff positions? If there are, will we have time to enjoy Jamboree, or would we be working the whole time? Do I need to find another council that will accept us?
