Volunteer Medical Staff Needed at Jamboree

Volunteer medical staff are assigned to respond to camper medical and first aid needs, evaluate potential hazards, and ensure the overall safety of participants, staff, vendors, and program partners. We are looking for EMTs, NPs, RNs, and LPNs on staff.

Adult leaders attending as Liberty Jamboree Volunteer Team Members will be camping/eating/participating with their unit and agree to work a 4 hour staff shift during the Jamboree. In addition to completing this form, Adult Volunteer Team Members must be included and paid for on their unit’s registration form and be on their unit’s roster for the event.

For more information regarding medical staff, contact Bill Schulz, medical operations lead, at billschulz77@gmail.com.

The revised adult applications have been available for about a month.

All Venture program youth ages 18-20 must complete the adult application and youth protection training.  For program purposes youth participation is available to youth 18-20, but they must use the adult forms and process when registering.

The field staff have made them available at the  recent roundtables and these are the only ones that are available here at the council service center and our Mountainside  Scout Shop location

Please be advised that  a supply will be distributed  to each unit  for their use—these will be in the unit mail boxes at the upcoming Tradeshow of Scouting on June 1st. There will also be information informing the units that as of September 1st, all adult registrants must use the new forms when registering. We are accepting the ‘old’ forms until then.
