Troop 25 will be taking part in MassJam (Massachusetts Jamboree) to be held October 6-8 (Saturday to Monday) at The Barnstable County Fairgrounds on Cape Cod.
MassJam is a pentennial (held every five years) event involving scouts from all around Massachusetts and Rhode Island – it’s a regional Jamboree and they are expecting a few THOUSAND scouts to attend. Some of our older scouts might have attended the last MassJam in 2013, but most scouts only have one opportunity to attend during their scouting career. There will be chances to meet other scouts, trade patches and take part in some scouting skills stations. Action centers may include: Air rifles, archery, climbing walls, first aid, geocaching, robotics, and rocketry. Each action center will feature activities of varying challenge for all age groups.
On Columbus Day weekend, 2018 thousands of Scouts, Webelos, and Venturers from Massachusetts and surrounding states will descend on the Barnstable Country fairgrounds in East Falmouth, Massachusetts for three days of Scouting fun, exhibits, challenging activities, competitions, entertainment, and fellowship.
Seven councils from Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the Barnstable County Fairgrounds, the town of Falmouth, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are participating in the planning of this event.
