A payment reminder was recently sent out via email to those individuals who have applied to be on staff. If you haven’t seen it, check your spam filters!
Here are a few highlights:
The second 2010 National Scout Jamboree payment in the amount of $400 per person is due on or before July 31, 2009. Please keep in mind that a late penalty of $50 will apply if payment is not received on or before that date.
All staff payments must be submitted online utilizing the same process that was used when the original application and deposit were submitted. Payments CANNOT be accepted in the Jamboree Department. The only payment method acceptable is electronically.
Complete step-by-step instructions can be found on www.bsajamboree.org under the “Staff” section.
Jamboree Staff Patches:
Each staff member will receive a total of two staff patches. The Jamboree Department will mail the first patch for all submitted staff applications and paid deposits. The letter with this patch very clearly states:
“Congratulations on completing your jamboree staff application. If selected as a jamboree staff member, you will be joined by more than 7,500 Scouters committed to delivering a magnificent experience to our Scouts. The selection process can take some time. We appreciate your patience. In recognition of your first payment (deposit), you will find the official jamboree staff emblem enclosed for you to wear above the right pocket of your BSA uniform.”
The patch is in no way a guarantee of a staff position!
The second staff patch will be sent out starting in late February, 2010, to all accepted staff members who are current on their fees. (Fees should be paid in full by Jan. 31, 2010.)
Youth Protection Training:
Don’t forget your YPT! All trainings must be current within two years of arrival at the jamboree. If training is going to need renewal, take care of it now! Why wait? Training can be taken online at: http://www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx.
Be sure to log in to the Staff EDIT form using the registration code on your jamboree application to update the expiration date upon completion of the renewal.
See you at the Hill!
