The latest developments at WashJam this week include lots of exciting activities for Cubs and Scouts. Cub Scout Adventure World will include a 'Big Top' circus tent, filled with lots of fun carnival games, live shows, jugglers and more! Lake Disney will be back, with canoeing adventures for Cub Scouts.
Aquatics Challenge: WashJam has once again secured beachfront access to American Lake, with swimming, canoeing, kayaking and sailing.
The Seattle Knights sword fighting and jousting troupe will appear on Saturday, August 22nd, for a live jousting show, with 4 horse mounted knights in shining armor, and on the field of combat: 12 armored knights will charge each other with weapons ready. With a clash of steel, they battle for honor and glory, swords blurring in a flurry of speed and skill that ends only when one of them hits the ground or yields!
New for 2020: Leadership Challenge:
This new themed area will include activities and challenges designed to build better youth leaders. The popular 'Field Leader Reaction Course' will be back, offering a trip through the 'Warrior Forge' challenge course for older Scouts. Pacific Harbor's National Youth Leadership Training team will present an area dedicated to NYLT leadership ideals.
The Travis Manion Foundation will be a key player in this new themed area, using a strengths-based approach to develop character traits through a combination of informal discussions and activity-based learning. Mentors will help Scouts develop character and leadership through experiences, to include team-building exercises, group discussions, and experiential learning challenges.
