WashJam 2020 Rescheduled to August 2021

Home > About Us > WashJam News

With guidance from our Board of Directors, volunteers and staff, Pacific Harbors Council has decided to postpone WashJam until August 2021. With these challenging and unprecedented times, we are tasked with evaluating what programs and activities are feasible within local and federal guidelines. Since the safety of our Scouts, volunteers and community members are of the utmost importance to us, we could not in good conscience move forward with this event without being able to guarantee the safety of our attendees and the ability to support these new guidelines and restrictions.

We hope that you take this news with an understanding heart, and put WashJam on your calendar for August 2021.

For disposition of your registration fees, we are giving you three options:

1. Donate all or a portion of your registration fees using the refund form to Pacific Harbors Council to assist us in recovering costs and keeping Scouting strong in the Pacific Northwest.

2. Move your registration forward to next year, (preserving your 2020 early registration discounts).
a. Requests to transfer your fees to WashJam 2021 must be submitted in writing using the refund form by August 13, 2020.

3. A full refund of your registration fees.*
a. Requests received using the refund form no later than August 13, 2020 will receive a full refund.
b. After August 13, 2020, any un-claimed money paid towards the WashJam 2020 event will be used to offset expenses incurred to date.

Fees from WashJam 2020 that are rolled over to 2021 fall under the Council Refund Policy, meaning once rolled over, you can still get a full refund up to August 4, 2021. If your 2020 fees are not rolled over or refunded by August 13, 2020, any un-claimed money paid towards the WashJam 2020 event will be used to offset expenses incurred to date.

* IMPORTANT NOTE ON REFUNDS: 2021 pricing will not include an 'Early Bird' discount, so if you paid the $42/$63 rate, and request a full refund, you will lose your $5 discount when buying tickets to WashJam 2021.

If you would like to receive a refund, roll over your fees to WashJam 2021, or have your registration costs donated, please submit your request on the website: http://washjam.org/refunds.asp and let us know which option you choose along with the name and registration ID# number(s) you received on your confirmation email if possible.

WashJam 2021 Registration Is Now Open! If you haven't signed up for WashJam yet, registration is now open for WashJam 2021, to be held in August 2021.

WashJam 2020 Souvenirs:
As the decision to postpone was made after a number of WashJam 2020 Souvenirs were already purchased, a limited number of belt buckles, neckerchief slides and lapel pins bearing the 'WashJam 2020' logo are available for purchase on the Trading Post website: http://councilstuff.com/612-washjamtradingpost These are sure to become collector's items, and there are limited quantities available, so act now to get yours before they are gone.

From everyone here at Pacific Harbors Council, we are excited and holding on to see you next summer for WashJam 2021.

Chairman, WashJam 2020,
