From July 19-28th, 40,000 scouts flew from all over the world to West Virginia to attend the 2017 National Scout Jamboree. Held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, this 10-day scouting experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime. From new faces to fantastic shows and program there was never a dull moment at the jamboree.
After a very exciting and successful year of Scouting and Service, the Western Region is looking forward to an even better 2017. We have formed two new committees to help us to reach that objective; the Finance Committee, and the Camping Promotions Committee. Additionally, the Communications Committee is always looking to add new members, so they are also described below. If any of these look like something you may be interested in, please fill out the Google Form at the bottom of the page. The Finance, Camping Promotions, and Communications Committee needs YOUR help to be successful!
The newly formed Communications and Technology Committee is a group of youth volunteers and adult advisers, along with section secretaries that choose to join the team. The goal of the committee is to engage arrowmen in the Western Region using social media and to create and deliver valuable content that is delivered on the Western Region’s website, which is in turn promoted on social media platforms to keep arrowmen informed of region events, leadership, training opportunities, and more.
From October 21-23, section chiefs, advisers and staff advisers will descend upon Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center in Orange, CA for the annual Western Region Gathering.Read More
