The event will take place July 26 through Aug. 4, 2010, at Fort A.P. Hill, in Richmond, Virginia. The Jamboree will be the highlight event of the Boy Scouts 100th anniversary.

More than 40,000 scouts and adults will attend the 10-day event. Twenty medical clinics that will be staffed by physicians, NPs, PAs, and RNs will provide care around the clock. Physicians can volunteer for the entire jamboree or for half of the event.
The Boy Scouts are hoping for a large emergency physician presence to help provide “the best care ever.”
