MassJam is the Massachusetts state Boy Scout Jamboree. Scouts from all councils in Massachusetts came to participate. There were many scouts that attended; Adam Koropey, Alex Fever, Brent Landquist, Dylan Marat, Eoghan Casey, George Bryan, Jeff Rosen, Joe Suzedell, Josh Rosen, Liam Geyer, and Tommy Olson.
Adult volunteers included: Mr. Hillman, Mr. Landquist, Mr. Marat, and Mrs. Rosen. We left early in the morning, with all the scouts and gear. We arrived in traffic (all of which were boy scouts) and set up camp shortly thereafter. We went to some of the stations, and explored the complex. There were also trading cards given out to everybody. Each of the cards had a different council patch. Later that night, at our camp area’s projection screen, three of us watched the movie ‘National Treasure’ along with other troops from the state. The next day we did a few more stations and traded more cards. Lunch was provided for a low price at the trading post. At night, there was a “celebrity” singer, who had been at other camporees and jamborees before. I say “celebrity” in quotation because nobody had ever herd of her and they dreaded her singing. She also sang a song called “I want to be a girly, girl,” and had everybody sing along. It was a little awkward for her to be here in the first place, but it was fun anyway. We left early the next morning with a small breakfast (cereal, breakfast bars, etc.), arriving soon after. Everybody loved it!
