**NOTE: After meeting with Jamboree, state, and park officials, the state has directed us to cancel the 2015 Liberty Jamboree. The Jamboree committee has worked tirelessly to find the best possible way to safely conduct the event, and the safety of our Scouts and leaders has always been our number one priority. In the coming days, council officials will address issues regarding any refunds, rescheduling and more.**

TAPinto.net today announced that it has been selected by the Boy Scouts of America’s New Jersey-based Patriots’ Path Council as the media sponsor of the 2015 Liberty Jamboree, scheduled for October 2 – 4 in Jersey City’s Liberty State Park, overlooking the Statue of Liberty and New York City. 

The Liberty Jamboree will serve as a week-end home to more than 5,000 Boy Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts and Explorers from the tri-state region who will participate in a hands-on, multi-faceted program. The event also serves as Scouting’s first overnight camping experience in Liberty State Park since 2001. In addition to Jamboree participants, the three-day program is expected to draw thousands of visitors, including Cub Scouts, Webelos, parents, prospective Scouts, and the general public.
