That's too bad. I never made it to a Jamboree when I was in Scouts, but went to plenty of Camporees, Scout Camps, 50-mile hike as well as monthly campouts (rain, snow, sunshine--didn't matter). I look back on the Scouts with fond memories, and it was events like this that made it all worthwile.
Ok,..... you had fun because adults cared to help the youth with Scouts. So what Scout Council/District/Troop/Pack are you working with now to repay the favor?
