It would appear from I have read that everyone going to the Jamboree,Participants and STaff will be required to submit an online application, $10.00 fee which does count toward your Jamboree fee. Once submitted the Youth/contingent leaders will get something to print and give to their councils. Staff will be required to make their initial payment. By the way the $10.00 is non refundable even if you are not selected as a staff memer or a participant.
Here is the exact information
Interested youth, unit contingent leaders, and prospective staff members must complete an online application. It is accessed through www.Scouting.org
for non-BSA employees. BSA employees will access it through www.MyBSA.org
. Applicants will need to use their BSA ID number to access the application Web site. The initial application fee is $10. This fee is nonrefundable and does apply to the registration fee. This will be reflected as a credit on your council statement once your final payment is received.
Scouts and individuals applying to be a part of the council contingent will be directed to print a confirmation and send it to the council with a $100 deposit. The confirmation will state that their application must be accepted by their council and does not guarantee participation. Individuals seeking jamboree staff positions will pay their fees online by credit card to the National Council.
Councils will be provided instruction on accessing the registration reports in a special announcement. The Web site will be activated in June 2008.
