Once your registration form has been completed, you will have a chance to review your data and accept it as entered. A printable confirmation will then be displayed. You should print it out and bring that page with you to the Jamboree. Once our limit of 450 has been met, online registration will be closed. You should arrive at the FHJ at 08:00am and report to the registration desk to check-in. You will then be given a program that includes a map of the building so that you'll be able to find your class rooms.
A complete booklet is available that contains all of the handouts for all of the classes. This saves a lot of note taking.
