Bummed that 13 yr olds cannot go as attendees. My son will be a few months shy of his 14th birthday by the deadline.

We might make the road trip down just to do some day visits.

Stay positive. If your scout really wants to go to the World Jamboree but is too young now, start making a plan to save for South Korea in 2023.

Hah!

Yes, saving would be required for such a trip vs the cheaper road trip we would take to get to it next year.

National Jambo will still set you back a chunk of change. Especially if you also apply and get approved as an ASM or sign up as staff. I give young scouts a very simple strategy: Make yourself useful to your folks to the tune of $100/month. Work on Personal Management MB. Put that cash into savings. Then, by the time an opportunity like this rolls around, you can jump on it. Or, maybe you might pass, but you'll still have a couple of grand for whatever big-ticket item you'd like.

If your son isn't really interested in the whole massive convention thing, and just wants to check out SBR, he should consider joining a contingent bound for the summer programs that they have there. For example, I know a some crews' appetite was sated by Venturingfest.
