Greetings from BSA Jamboree!

We got to meet Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl!

Tread Lightly! is excited to be a presence at the 2013 Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia! This 10-day event is jam packed with high adventure fun, patch trading and most importantly, conservation and outdoor ethics education!

Sam was our lucky winner on Friday! He won a Goal Zero Solar Powered Lighthouse Lantern!

We’ve met people from all across the country; some Master Tread Trainers and some who hadn’t ever heard of Tread Lightly!. We’ve made a lot of new friends who have committed to treading lightly in their part of the country. The positive response has been an overwhelming success.

Troupes from all over the country have signed our Outdoor Ethics Commitment Board!

We’ve been having a lot of fun at our booth, too. Every day we’ve had the chance to give away a great prize to one of our new friends–congratulations to Jack, Dana, Robert and Sam (all scouts or adventurers) who have taken home an Adjust-a-Grill or Goal Zero Solar Powered Lantern.

If you’re currently at Boy Scout Jamboree, please come by the conservation trail area and say hello, grab a bag from Falken Tire and enter to win the raffle! We would love to meet you! Better yet, come sign up as a member and get an awesome flashlight from Goal Zero!

Have a great time, scouts!

–Evan and Jerrica
