The Scouts Have Left the Camp...
I am most impressed by the slick, glossy style of the daily newspaper. It has a USA Today look to it. The news arrives in the morning food pickup and briefs each on the daily adventures.
You too should be able to view it daily. Check www.scouting.org and click on the 2005 National Jamboree which hopefully is live by now.
Official attendance: 43,063 (31,788 Scouts, 3,532 Leaders and 7,743 Staff). Unofficial camp rumors are saying this is the largest attendance at National or World Jamboree.
There are flags posted announcing the heat danger - similar to our red flag / burn ban back home. Green tells scouts to drink at least 1 pint of water between meals, Yellow equals 1 quart and red equals 2 quarts with all activities shut down.
