Join the Program: Attend the event of a lifetime. It's definitely "Superior by Nature". The Program reflects the unique opportunities that abound on the shores of Lake Superior. The Program is designed around eight exciting themes: geology, water, heritage, fur trade, transportation, communication, forestry and fishing. Something for everyone!

Jamboree Program Booklet: Obtain a Jamboree Program Booklet from your local Scouts Canada office. It provides complete activity descriptions, instructions and a booking form. Get yours today.

Jump in the Lake!: Boulevard Lake fills the centre of the Jamboree site. You can't miss it; you're bound to get wet. Have a swim, walk on water, do some canoeing, kayaking or sailing. Your choice!

The Sleeping Giant: Sleeping Giant Provincial Park is a densely wooded wilderness area ideal for adventures: rugged coastlines, awesome cliffs and plenty of lakes. Great for shutterbugs.

Big Thunder: Explore Olympic calibre ski jumps and cross country ski trails. Without snow? You'll have to check out this program!

Scoutship Enterprise: You'll find hi-tech activities galore! Try TV production, some desktop publishing, graffiti art or surf the Net. Rise to the challenge.
