Registration goes live on November 1, 2017

 

 Are you ready to "Unlock a New World?

 

The USA Contingent to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in 2019 will begin accepting applications for participants, adult volunteers, and International Service Team (IST) members in a few days. We hope that you can join us for an adventure of a lifetime.

 

What is the 24th World Scout Jamboree?

 

The World Scout Jamboree is the largest camping event organized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), gathering as many as 50,000 Scouts and leaders from 169 National Scout Organizations. The 24th World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) is co-hosted by Scouts Canada, Association de Scouts de Mexico, and the Boy Scouts of America. The last time the United States hosted a WSJ was in 1967 in Idaho.

 

The WSJ is an educational event bringing together young men and young women from around the world to promote peace, mutual understanding, and to develop leadership skills. The Jamboree will feature the hallmarks of past World Jamboree programs, such as the Global Development Village, the World Scout Centre, a special sustainability initiative, and the socialization elements that allow participants to make lifelong friends from around the world.

 

Participation is open to eligible men and women who are registered members in the Boy Scouts of America. World Scout Jamboree units will be organized on a regional (not Council) basis.

 

The theme for the 24th World Scout Jamboree is "Unlock a New World". This reflects the new adventures, cultures and friendships that will be shared by Scouts from around the world. We hope you can join us!

 

The United States Contingent is limited on the number of people that we can send to a World Scout Jamboree. While we will be able to send more to this Jamboree than ever before, we expect there to be tremendous interest and encourage folks to apply as soon as possible.

 

Dates:

 July 22 - August 2, 2019 (USA Contingent will arrive on July 21, 2019)

 

Location: 

Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve

West Virginia, USA

Eligibility:

 

 Birthday between July 22, 2001 and July 21, 2005

 

  *   Youth participants (boys and girls) must be age 14-17

 Birthday before July 22, 2001 (age 18 and older)

 

  *   Adult unit leaders (age 18 and older)

  *   International Service Team (IST) age 18 and older

 

 When to apply

The USA Contingent application system will open on November 1, 2017.

Application Process:

Participants, adult leaders, and IST will complete an online application. Applications will be reviewed on both a Council and National level. Official information and a link to the online application can be found on the USA Contingent website: https://wsj2019.us/apply<https://wsj2019.us16.list-manage.com/track/click?u=20d9a19d85a67003681c85f47&id=665b6f67a5&e=ad24999f25>

Fees: Total fees, along with a payment schedule, will be published on November 1, 2017.

 

Early applicant discount: applicants who submit a $250 deposit between November 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018 and make all additional payments on time will have a $100 discount applied to their last payment. The payment schedule will be published on or before November 1, 2017.

What is included in the fee:

The participant and unit leader fees include registration for the Jamboree, meals at the Jamboree, tents, and patrol and cooking gear. The fees also cover appropriate travel expenses (including food) between "Hub Cities" and the Jamboree. An appropriate number of "Hub Cities" will be identified across the continental United States depending on the distribution of youth and leaders that make up the various units. Applicants will be responsible for the costs to get themselves to and from these "Hub City" locations.

 

Due to different travel costs, participant and leader fees may vary by Region.

 

The IST fees will include all of these items except for transportation and travel related expenses. Transportation to and from the Jamboree will be the responsibility of the IST member based on when they need to report or depart from their staff assignment.

 

In an effort to reduce costs, there will be NO TOURS pre or post Jamboree.

Selection Process

The Boy Scouts of America is limited to the number of participants and International Service Team Members it can send to a World Jamboree. Based on anticipated participation, space could be limited.

 

Participants - Participants will be notified, by unit leadership, if they have been accepted or are being put on a waiting list. If they are put on a waiting list, they will continue to pay according to the payment schedule. Applicants on the waiting list that are not ultimately selected will receive a full refund (including initial deposit).

 

Leaders - There will be four leaders per unit and acceptance timing will be based on the filling of youth in the units which have been allocated to each Region. Leaders will continue to pay, according to the payment schedule even if they have not been confirmed. BSA area and regional leadership will select leaders based on the leader qualifications. Leader applicants who are not ultimately selected will receive a full refund. If a unit leader applicant is not selected for a unit leadership position, it would be encouraged that they consider modifying their registration status to that of an International Service Team member applicant. Once that modification is made in their application, selection for IST positions would be handled by the Host Committee. Female leadership is important in order to follow BSA policy on co-ed units.

 

IST - Once approved by their local Council and the USA Contingent leadership, the application will be sent to the World Jamboree Organizers (Host). The Host will notify the applicant of acceptance and job assignment. Some assignments will likely be given in 2018 and some in 2019. The applicant will need to continue to pay as per the fee schedule above. If an applicant is not ultimately accepted, they will receive a full refund.

 

Scholarship Program - A partial scholarship will be available based on need - more details pertaining to the scholarship program will be available on or before December 31, 2017. Partial scholarships, if received, will be applied to the final payments.

Other General Information

Prior to the Jamboree, online training for participants, unit leaders and IST will be required for all in the USA Contingent. This will be identified and provided during late 2018.

 

Participants must have a birthday between July 22, 2001 and July 21, 2005 to attend. IST must have a birthday before July 22, 2001. There are no exceptions.

 

A World Jamboree is a coed event and all are encouraged to apply. If a potential participant is currently not a member of the Boy Scouts of America due to current membership age requirements and would like to apply for the Jamboree, they should contact their local council to learn how to register in order to apply for the World Jamboree.

 

The participants and unit leaders from the USA Contingent will arrive on July 21st and depart August 2nd - the arrival day is a day earlier than the other contingents - this is to help the Jamboree Organizers (Host) welcome other participants and leaders from all around the world.

 

Participants and unit leaders must travel with the USA Contingent from their "Hub City" to the Jamboree. "Hub Cities" will be in the continental USA (i.e. those coming from Alaska, Hawaii, Far East Council, and Transatlantic Council will need to provide their own means of transportation to and from the "Hub city").

 

The Jamboree Organizing Committee has the authority to cancel the event due to compelling reasons. If the Jamboree is canceled because of events outside of BSA or the Jamboree Organizing Committee control (e.g., acts of terrorism, natural disasters), the BSA and Jamboree Organizing Committee may not refund the fees collected.

 

Any payment made after March 15, 2019 is subject to an additional $50 late fee.

 

 We hope you'll join Scouts and Scouters from across the BSA for this opportunity to "Come See the World" right here in West Virginia. Scouts will not only enjoy the adventures at the Summit, but will also work with Scouts from around the world in seeking answers and solutions to international questions and problems. Scouts will leave the Jamboree with a wider view of the world, a deeper understanding of world Scouting, and a renewed commitment to Scouting as a whole.

IT’S POPCORN SELLING COMING TO A CLOSE! 

Hello Scouts, Leaders & Troop Parents,

 Hats off to the boys who attended this week's Show n Sell at Pats and E.I. Bagels who grossed $1013 in popcorn sales and donations.  This is a new record for a Show n Sell Sale, so congratulations to all of the scouts in attendance.  The scouts who sold were: Logan Muller, Joseph Falcon, Jack Wodicka, James Buonincontri, Ruelin Man-Martinez, Robert Hilbert, Christopher Dopfel, Vito Giuliodibari, Javier Orellana, Louis Attard, 

Lucas Erhard, Nico Paladino, & Robert Camlet. 

Also, Ryan Gannon and his cub scout brother held a sale at Stanley's.  He sold $430 of popcorn, not to mention more $ in donations.  Between a previous sale combined with this weekend's, Ryan has grossed $1224 in sales and donations. Fantastic job Ryan!

  I would like to thank all of the leaders and parent's who were there to support the scouts and help supervise the sale.  We couldn't have done it without you, so Thank You!

 Remember, I need to collect all of the Form Orders for Popcorn at tomorrow night's meeting, so that I can place your orders.  Please have your items totaled at the bottom of each row on the form.  All $ funds must be handed in with your order form.  It would help me greatly if you could please put your form and money in an envelope with your name on it to keep things organized. If you are not able to attend the meeting this week, please contact me to make arrangements to hand in your order no later than this Tuesday, October 31st!  I will be placing our troop order shortly after that, and don't want to miss filling anyone's sales. 

 If you are not selling popcorn but would like to support the sale, I will have popcorn for purchase at this week's meeting.  Items range from $10-20 and the Troop receives 40% of your donation.

  Thanks again for all of your support and participation.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.

TROOP COURT OF HONOR AT THIS TUESDAY'S TROOP MEETING - Attention all Scouts, parents, siblings, grandparents - come on down to our Troop 205 Court of Honor this upcoming Tuesday evening at Timber Point School, beginning at 7:30pm.

 

IT'S POPCORN SELLING TIME!  A MESSAGE FROM OUR POPCORN KERNEL - COMMITTEE MEMBER ALLIE GOESS:

 

Hello Scouts, Leaders & Scout Families,

 

The scouts are off to a great start with their popcorn sales. Julian Covarrubias and Vito Giuliodibari started with a Door to Door Sale on 9/28 that grossed $204!

 

This past weekend the scouts had two Show n Sell Sales at Costello's Ace Hardware in East Islip.  On Saturday, Louis Attard, Josh Banville, Julian Covarrubias, Christopher Dopfel, Chad Glick & Ruelin Man-Martinez grossed a total of $723 in sales and donations!  On Sunday, Josh Banville, Matt Barra, Julian Covarrubias, Grant Dollmann, Joseph Falcon, Sam Hartnett & Ruelin Man-Martinez grossed a total of $776!  Great job guys!!!

 

Ryan Gannon sold alongside cub scouts at Stanley's Bakery on Saturday and sold $480! Way to go Ryan!

 

I would to thank all of the troop and family members who attended as well.  Your support and supervision is always needed and greatly appreciated.

 

So far the troop has grossed a total of $2183 in sales and donations. Remember the scouts are earning a 40% commission on these sales.  Last year the troop sold a grand total of $8,480.  If we reach this year's goal of $9328 (a 10% increase) the boys will receive an extra 2% in commission (a total of 42%).

 

 

If you haven't been selling, it's not too late!  The Popcorn Sales run through the end of October.  You can pick up an order form at the committee table during our troop meetings or set up an online account to sell to family and friends.  I will have sign-up sheets for another Door to Door Sale on October 15th @ 1:30, as well as another Show n Sell Sale at Pat's Market & EI Bagels on October 28th @7:30.

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.  P.S. I'm still waiting to hear from a few people who would like to join the Popcorn Committee, so don't be shy!

 

                                                       Warm Regards, Allie Goess

                                                       516-660-0315

 

 

P.S.-  I will have popcorn for sale in the back of the cafeteria during our troop meetings.  Prices range from $10-20 an item.  If your  scout is not selling popcorn on his own, you can still help support our sale by making a purchase/donation directly from me at the  meetings including this week's COH.  The Boy Scouts receive 73% of your contribution, and 40% of that goes directly to our troop.

 

Thanks again for your support!

TROOP 205 SCOUT AND FATHER'S MONTAUK FISHING & CAMPING TRIP THIS LAST WEEKEND - A great time was had by all camping, fishing, eating great, and having a super time, despite some rough seas and intermittent rain on Saturday afternoon.  A special thanks for the ASM Activity Captains who ran this event - Chris Dopfel and Marc Muller - along with the logistical help from ASM Tim Bucci who arranged the fishing charter and cooked the fish on Saturday evening.  We also thank Senior Patrol Leader Jacob Arens for the wonderful job in leading our Troop throughout the weekend.

 

A special thanks to all our fine Scouts and Fathers who helped us at the Fire House upon our trip home cleaning up the camping equipment and helping us stack a cord of wood for the Troop.

 

If you have a Troop Tent from the weekend, please return dry and repacked at this week's Troop Meeting.

 

The weekend photos will be downloaded on our site: www.t205.net<http://www.t205.net> very soon, but in the meantime, please enjoy these photos of our Scouts, Parents, and Leaders:

POPCORN  SALE NOW GOING ON:

 

Hello Scouts, Leaders & Parents,

 

I wanted to send out a reminder to let you know that our Popcorn Fundraising Sale is going on now through October 31st.  Please see the attached flyer for more information on the ways you can sell and all of the benefits to you and scouting as a whole.

 

I am also trying to organize a Popcorn Committee this year to help organize sales, help supervise at sales and brainstorm some fresh ideas on how to increase sales and participation.  If you are interested please contact me by text, email or call.

 

There will be signup sheets for Storefront Sales at the troop meeting at the committee table. I need to get some parent volunteers to sign up and supervise these sales with me. I am happy to organize the sales for the scouts to earn more commissions, but Council will not allow me to run these sales by myself.  As a safety precaution, I must have another adult supervisor/parent with the group and myself at all times.  Thank you in advance for volunteering some time ;)

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or suggestions.  Best of luck with your Popcorn Sales!

                                                                   Warm Regards, Allie Goess

WELCOME BACK FROM SUMMER CAMP  – With the dedicated talent of Summer Camp Scoutmaster Larry Grey, along with ASM’s Jim Fitzmaurice, Dave Ehrhardt, and Charlie Klahn – along with our new Senior Patrol Leader Jacob Arens, our Summer Camp Scoutmaster Larry Grey reports the following about our 17 Scouts who attended:

 

“ Out of 92 Merit Badges, 81 were completed outright (88%).  Of the partials, 7 camping and 1 First Aid we knew going in would be partials, and we have three unexpected that need to be completed (2 Fish and Wildlife, and 1 Naturalization). 

 

The Troop also earned the TROOP EXCELLENCE AWARD (attached) for the 2nd year in a row.  Of a possible 500 points in camp inspections, Troop 205 earned 539 points given all of the site projects completed (clearing brush, building rabbit hutches for winter, repairing the rope guide on the steps, and repairing the bear box).  On Thursday we received recognition for the highest inspection score and were awarded the honor of leading the Camp Flag ceremonies.”

 

Congratulations to our fine Scouts and Leaders for another successful Summer Camp experience!   For those who left Summer Camp with partials on Merit Badges, now is the time to get them completed before school starts, if possible.  If you need a listing of merit badge counselors, please reply to this email with the merit badge(s) that you need to complete.

A special thanks to Chris and Allstate Insurance.  When you are need of insurance, please contact Allstate Insurance Agency Owner Chris Bernichon at (revised phone number and email address from last week’s Troop e-Lert) 631-208-0220 or email Chis at chrisbern@allstate.com   Please thank him for making this grant happen and tell him that Troop 205 sent you. 

 Troop 205 is in “Good Hands” with Allstate and Allstate Agency Owner and Assistant Scoutmaster Chris Bernichon

A SPECIAL PRESENTATION WILL TAKE PLACE AFTER THE OPENING OF THIS WEEK’S TROOP MEETING – BY SCOUT AND GO-CARTER NICK CONZO!

 I wanted to talk to the troop about the Go Kart racing I participate in.
I am a member of the Long Island Karting Association and I race in the TAG
Jr. class.  I like Go Karting because I get a chance to work on the go kart
with my dad and we try to improve my lap times.  It also lets me demonstrate
the scout oath "on my honor I will do my best".


I like to speeds that I drive at and I like being at the track around other
racers.  My goal is to constantly improve my go kart racing and eventually
move up to race cars.


Thank You
Jason

A SCOUTING FAMILY IN NEED – A MESSAGE FROM SCOUT AND DEN CHIEF FRANKIE NACCARATO –

 

A Scout is helpful, and right now, one of our own Pack 205 den leaders and Wolf Scouts are in need of some help.  The Timmers family of East Islip had a fire in their home right before February break and suffered an almost total loss of all their belongings.  In fact, they have been displaced in a hotel due to the damage.  We would like to take a collection to help them deal with this difficult situation.  If you are interested in assisting with either cash or a gift card, please bring it to this week’s troop meeting and see Frankie Naccarato, Wolf Den Leader.

 

Thank you,

 

Frankie Naccarato
