Besides being one of your official Jamboree identity credentials, your Novus wristband unlocks a Jamboree-wide Game. There are at least 470 different badges available for the different activities, people, and workshops you should visit and participate in while at the Jamboree. Everything from zip Lines, to Model UN, kayaking, the shooting sports, and The Sustainability Treehouse.

Many different activities will have “Touchpoints” allowing you to “Click” to record your participation. Your wristband also records your completion of the safety briefings required for several activities. When you return to that activity, you will be recorded as being authorized to participate.

Your wristband also allows you to exchange contact information with the new friends you will make during the Jamboree. Remember, you can only “Click” with one person at a time and to abide by Safe from Harm when “Clicking” (adults may only “Click” with adults, and youth with youth). “Click” your bands to exchange information and also to interact or check-in with the activity areas. All of your contacts and badges can be viewed online or through the official Jamboree mobile app. Parents can also view online at
