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

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.
