Daily activities will offer fun, challenge, an opportunity for religious resections, citizenship, and the international brotherhood of being with Scouts from other countries of the world. Patrol and individual competitive events will be carried out on a troop and subcamp level.
New methods of practicing and demonstrating skills will be an important part of the jamboree. The skills will include archery, orienteering, challenge trails, marksmanship, boating, canoeing, hunter safety, as well as updated versions of the disabilities awareness trail, competitive events, merit badge midway, and the Technology Quest.
Technology Quest (formerly Arts and Sciences) is a dynamic set of interactive hands-on activities highlighting the Arts and Sciences. The mission of Technology Quest is to excite and motivate youth to acquire the skill sets needed for life and careers in the 21st Century. We will challenge their imaginations and allow them to explore a wide variety of new experiences with the help of our Partners. Our expanding list of Partners includes National Geographic, NASA, LEGO, AT&T, Rockwell Collins, FutureQuest, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, DeVry University, the Automation Foundation, and more. Technology Quest will equip our youth with a vision of the future, and the knowledge that they can play whatever role they choose in shaping that future.

OA Shows - Mysterium Compass What is the Mysterium Compass? An exciting new adventure will launch at the next National Scout Jamboree. The Order of the Arrow will produce an 'augmented reality' game for all scouts called THE MYSTERIUM COMPASS. It will be a live-action adventure combining elements of video gaming with theme-park style immersion, actors, and theatrical settings.
Why? Because life is a mystery: a puzzle full of difficult choices. And THE MYSTERIUM COMPASS provides directions for life. Can you keep your wits - and your values - about you while trying to out-do the competition? Will you choose self or others in facing the challenges of life? We'll help you explore the questions, “What do I know? What do I believe? What do I need to help me find my way?”
THE MYSTERIUM COMPASS will be both absorbing and interactive with loads of stimulating fun and crazy stunts that test your cool under pressure and powers of observation while racing from one station to the next. It blends life-lessons with improvisational actors, theatrical props and special effects. The 2010 Jamboree will be infused with a “heightened reality” of intrigue, mystery and adventure.
Find your way to THE MYSTERIUM COMPASS…where being lost was never more fun!
