Boy Scouts of America Hosting All-Council JAMBORAMA Camporee at the Chemung County Fairgrounds

Five Rivers Council Invites Twin Tiers Community to Participate for FREE in Extensive Showcase of Activities for All Ages

Elmira, NY (October 13, 2014) – Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and unit leaders from across the Twin Tiers will be gathering at the Chemung County Fairgrounds this weekend, October 17-19, to participate in the latest JAMBORAMA Camporee hosted by Five Rivers Council.

The JAMBORAMA is designed to be a local version of the National Jamboree hosted every fours years by the Boy Scouts of America.  Held in West Virginia in July of 2013, the National Jamboree draws more than 40,000 scouts from across the globe for a ten-day, high-adventure experience of a lifetime.

This weekend’s JAMBORAMA hopes to attract over one thousand scouts and leaders who want to participate in high adventure and educational activities including, shooting sports, mountain biking, rock climbing, caving, amateur radio operations, team building activities, cooking, first aid and much, much more.  

The event will be open to the public on Saturday, October 18th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is free of charge. Visitors will receive an ID bracelet upon arrival and are invited to participate in any of the planned activities.
