A large area outside of the gate is used for Jamboree style setup. Wood, water and facilities are provided.

The Alafia River Rendezvous is a pre-1840 living history encampment, where participants and re-enactors live in camps portraying and demonstrating life skills of various Early American cultures, i.e.; British, Irish, Scottish, Spanish and Native American. At last year’s gathering, over 1,000 lodges were set up housing well over 1,600 people. Traders Row consists of over a hundred traders selling everything from kettle corn and homemade root beer, to beads, toys and period clothing of all sorts. Are tradition is to welcome any Boy Scout troop to camp outside of our stockade.  A large area is provided where tents can be setup, fire pits can be created and Scouts can spend time with the many troops that make the Alafia River Rendezvous an annual event.  Potable water and portable toilet facilities are provided in the Scout camping area.  For a complete description of rules, costs and other details, you will be able to find them here and download them in October.
