PAYMENT SCHEDULE:

Staff applicants are required to submit a $150 deposit upon submission of the staff application. No further payments are due until a staff position has been offered and accepted. The staff member is then required to become current with the posted payment schedule within 15 calendar days of accepting the staff position. However, staff applicants are welcome to make payments per the payment schedule should they choose to, even if a position has not yet been confirmed. This would prevent the possibility of having to catch up on payments.

Should an applicant not be selected for a position, the deposit and any subsequent payments that have been submitted are 100-percent refundable after the close of the jamboree. Should a position be offered but declined by the applicant, either directly or by not responding to the offer in the allotted time, all submitted fees are refundable less an administration fee of $75.
