Bring your canopy and camp chairs—and of course, your ratties—and join the fun as folks from all over the country converge on the huge, completely fenced Jamboree field at the Sweetwater KOA for two Jam-packed days of games, competitions, and demonstrations. Follow our Jamboree event page on Facebook, and the New Rattitude Facebook page.

The price of admission is the donation of an item of your choice to our New Rattitude fundraising event. For the use of their facilities, the KOA requires all adults and children age 6 or older to purchase a KOA Field Pass wristband for $3. These will be available at the Jamboree registration tent and are good for both days. The cookout on Friday night is free and there is no charge to enter the contests and events.

Tickets will be available for purchase during the Meet & Greet Friday afternoon. Items to be auctioned will be on display at the cookout. If you don’t win your auction item, you can use your tickets for Saturday’s fundraiser and to vote for your favorite King and Queen!


To wrap up the evening, bring your camp chairs and join us at the big fire pit next to the picnic pavilion.

Let the Games Begin!

Saturday competitions include agility, racing, best trick, and other games and contests. There is no cost to enter. All are “for fun” and all dogs are welcome to play. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable experience for every dog and handler, regardless of age, skill, or training.
