REFUND POLICY: Due to commitments made by the Black Warrior Council, the policy of the
Council’s High Adventure Committee is that the first $250.00 deposit made to attend a Council
sponsored High Adventure activity, including participation in a National Jamboree, is nonrefundable. If a
participant drops out and is unable to attend, any payment made in excess of the $250.00 non-
refundable deposit may be transferred to a new participant less any financial commitments up to that
point which are non-refundable (such as airfare, etc.).
REQUEST TO TRANSFER FEE: For those that request, by January 1st of the year of the activity,
to transfer fees paid from one High Adventure trip to another, e.g.: Philmont to SeaBase, the
amount transferred will be limited to one-half of the paid fee, exclusive of the $250.00 nonrefundable deposit.
REFUND FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND FAMILY EMERGENCIES: If a participant needs to
drop out due to a medical condition or family emergency, they will receive a refund in the
amount of 50% of the total amount paid less the $250.00 non-refundable deposit.
REFUND PROCESS: Approved refunds will be issued during October of the year of the
scheduled activity when all accounts are closed or after we receive credits for the event.

Scouting’s flagship event is one-of-a-kind. It’s a gathering of tens of thousands of Scouts, leaders, and Jamboree Service Team members that showcases everything that is great about the Boy Scouts of America. Over the course of 10 summer days, once every four years, the Boy Scouts of America gathers together. Scouts and Scouters who attend will explore all kinds of adventures—stadium shows, pioneer village, Mount Jack hikes, adventure sports and more—in the heart of one of nature’s greatest playgrounds.
With 10,000 acres at the Summit to explore, there’s no shortage of opportunities to build Scouting memories.
National Jamboree is the best of Scouting rolled into 10 days of friends, fun and adventure! You won’t want to miss out, get ready to move Forward and sign up to attend the Jamboree!
