Liberty State Park Service Project Program

As part of the 2015 Liberty Jamboree, Patriots’ Path Council has developed a program of service projects in Liberty State Park to benefit the park, Scouts and units attending the jamboree.

Each Day of Service is designed as a project for approximately 50 Scouts and adult leaders, with work beginning at 9:00 AM and ending at 2:00 PM.

Benefits for each Scout and unit participating in a Day of Service:

1)      Each youth and adult Scouter who provides a Day of Service will receive a patch/rocker to recognize their Day of Service.

2)      Each youth Scout who provides a Day of Service will receive a speed pass good for one high adventure activity at the 2015 Liberty Jamboree.

3)      For each group of 8 youth Scouts who provide a Day of Service, the unit will receive 1 complimentary parking pass at the 2015 Liberty Jamboree.

4)      Youth and adult Scouters and their units who provide a Day of Service will be recognized at the Saturday evening extravaganza at the 2015 Liberty Jamboree.

For more information and service project dates, see the flyer.

STEM NOVA PROGRAM and AWARDS

These three books support the new NOVA Awards program offered by the Boy Scouts of America. This program incorporates learning with cool activities and exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The hope is that the requirements and activities for earning these awards will stimulate an interest in STEM-related fields as they show how Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics apply to everyday living and the world around them. Counselors and mentors help bring this engaging, contemporary, and fun program to life for youth members.

All requirements may be found in the Nova awards guidebooks, available through our Patriots’ Path Scout Shops—one for Cub Scouts, one for Boy Scouts, and one for Venturers. The requirements can be completed with a parent or an adult leader as the counselor (for the Nova awards) or mentor (for the Supernova awards). Each guidebook includes a section for the counselor and mentor.
