As many of you know, this year at the 2017 National Jamboree the five pronged spear of Operation Arrow played a vital role in enhancing overall participant’s experiences and helping the Jamboree run smoothly and efficiently. The service corps was able to complete over 16,000 hours of service by helping in program areas all across the jamboree and provided security and crowd control at all the stadium shows and base camp bashes. The aerial sports team made sure that all the participants at all of the zip lines and canopy tours had a safe and enjoyable time, the medical transport team transported scouts in need, the trek guides gave scouts the inspiration and drive to reach the top of Garden Ground Mountain, and last but certainly not least the Indian village crew entertained and amazed scouts with their dancing and drumming skills. All in all, the Jamboree wouldn’t have been the same without the amazing service and support of those involved in Operation Arrow. If you ever get the opportunity to join those who make serving others their mission, look no further than Operation Arrow. If you missed out on serving in 2017, remember there’s always next time!
