2013 Jamboree Review The 2013 National scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve was a wonderful experience.  As a Venturer I was able to white water raft on the lower New River, camp with the international scouts, and participate in many other exciting activities.  My curriculum activity was rock climbing, and I had an absolute blast with it.  It started at 8:00 am and didn't end until noon.  During this I learned how to belay for others and climb on more difficult levels than I had before; rock climbing was probably my favorite activity.  While the rain kept some people down, base-camp Foxtrot made the best of it.  One day we made a slip- and- slide out of extra plastic and the rain; another day we had a lightning watch party were we treated the lightning like fireworks and admired the natural beauty of it.  Some of the other activities I participated in were scuba diving, dragon boats, kayaking, the day of service, etc.  I had one of the best times of my life at Jamboree.  It has opened many doors for me; if it had not been for Jamboree I would not have become a part of VOA.
