What is it?

Rocket Jamboree is a weekend event for Scouts to launch solid-fuel model rockets in a safe and legal environment. Hosted the first or second weekend of October since 2000 (except 2013) by the Tres Ranchos district of the San Francisco Bay Area Council, it is open to all registered scouts in California or Nevada BSA units.

This year's event features five launch sessions - Morning and Afternoon on both days, and a night session on Saturday. Registration is required for each session that you want to launch. The event is for Boyscouts, Seascouts, Venture Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Cubscouts. Rocket Drag Race These events allow Cubscouts to fly model rockets with age appropriate motor sizes from "A" through "D" (older scouts through "G"). Each session will cap registration so that wait times will be reduced.
This year you can save money by purchasing Estes, AeroTech and other rocket kits and motors at a discount for your scouts from The Rocket Jamboree Trading Post - contact Mike Gentile.
