Supervisor Resources

Since 1992, the Oregon Jamboree has put on 28 Jamborees (1998 & 2020 were off years) and had more than 6500 volunteers help us out.  Some work for one or two years and we are grateful for their help.  Some stay for the long haul, never missing an opportunity to lend a hand.  Friends talk friends into volunteering.  Parents assign their teenage children so they learn how to give back to the community.  Community leaders join in to serve and have a great time!  We depend on all of them!

These volunteers have stood the test of time and are still volunteering in 2021!  
Please find them at the event and thank them from all of us! (Milestone years receive pins and onsite recognition on Sunday).
