Similar to the last jamboree in Alberta, we will divide the camp into six subcamps and we need your assistance in helping us find the key volunteers to take on the role of Subcamp Chief for each. Each of these individuals will be a strong leader, able to build and engage a cross-functional team from across the councils they represent, build a vision for an exceptional participant experience, and deliver a fantastic experience for all involved, both participant and volunteer.
