Blog2013 Jamboree: What’s The Deal With Day Of Service?

Posted on February 11, 2013 by
Scouts are all about service.

For one day of the 2013 National Scout Jamboree, you’re doing a day of service.

Here’s the deal with that:

First, you’re a Scout. It’s what you do. Pitching in and helping—it’s in your blood.

It takes work, some sweat, and some muscle, but you’re prepared for the challenge. You’re a Scout.

Second, service projects bring Scouts together in a huge way. Ask anyone who’s been part of a really big, meaningful project.

Or a really small, meaningful project.

The jambo is going to be—no exaggeration—a life-changing experience. Service goes hand-in-hand with that.

‘Nuff said.

Third, and last, service projects are a blast. They’re really, really fun.

And that’s the other thing the jambo is about.

Fun. Lots of it.

Seriously, if you’re not having fun on your day of service, you’re doing it wrong.
