Registration Information

registration_info_header

If you have already registered for Jubilee, the registration staff will be putting a packet together for you that will be mailed to the primary registrant in September. In the packet you will find your wristbands, patches and any vehicle park permits you’ve requested. There will also be a map of the park, and general event and check-in information. Register early to ensure that you receive the most up-to-date program announcements.

The 2014 Jubilee will be held October 10-12, 2014 at Mahoney State Park in Ashland, Nebraska (I-80, Exit 426). Registration is open to all Scouts, Scouters, Explorers, Venture Crews, Webelos, Cub Scouts, Tiger Cubs, leaders, and their families. All units and families should register online at www.mac-bsa.org/MACJUBILEE.

All participants must register, including parents, family members, and leaders. The registration fee provides participants with access to Friday night entertainment, event areas on Saturday, Saturday night entertainment, and the fireworks show.

Registrations received by August 15, 2014 will receive a commemorative collector’s patch. After August 15, the patch will be provided while quantities last. All units are asked to carefully consider their transportation arrangements to and from the Jubilee. Carpooling is highly recommended, especially between dens and troops. Fewer vehicles results in less traffic, Scout safety, and less impact on the property.

Upon arriving at Mahoney State Park you will enter the main gate and proceed through the park with the flow of traffic. There will be signage and military personnel directing traffic.

ALL VEHICLES MUST have a current Nebraska State Park sticker to enter the park. These will come in your packet when you register by August 15. They will also be available in Scouter Services at the Durham Scout Center September 1-30. Please purchase them prior to entering the park to make entrance go faster and more smoothly.

Some guidelines to consider:

  • Upon arriving at the camp, all units will be immediately directed to their camping area.
  • District or area campmasters will be responsible for organizing their camping area.
  • We will allow one unit trailer & vehicle to be left at individual campsites if there is no rain. If it rains there will be a plan B. All other vehicles will be directed to a special parking area nearby. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Military members and staff will be available to assist in directing all vehicles to the parking areas.
  • Full cooperation from each unit will assist in maintaining the camp at the high standards to which we’re all accustomed.

Troops must check in with the campmaster and turn in an updated roster before setting up camp. Please check with your Campmaster to see if they have any specific instructions for you or to report any special needs your unit may have.

Cub Packs may camp overnight on Jubilee Hill. Packs will be allowed to camp out both nights. The BSA guideline of youth/adult ratio of 1:1 will apply. There will be Army Reserve Soldiers located throughout the park for your security and assistance.

Cub and family camping is located at Little Creek Campground and Lakeside Campground. Register early – a limited number of campsites are available. Tent camping is recommended. Only four vehicles per campsite are allowed. Cars at campsites are to maintain a minimum of two tires on the pavement.

Carpooling is highly recommended. All other vehicles parking will be diverted to an additional parking lot near Jubilee Hill. Overnight accommodations are also available at Strategic Air & Space Museum on Saturday night.
