About the Jamboree
The purpose of the Ocean Shores Jamboree is to celebrate our sobriety. We provide a sober environment for all members within the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous; our purpose is to support individual sobriety and maintain unity. We structure activities within the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and the AA Guidelines for Conferences and Conventions.
About Alcoholics Anonymous
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international mutual aid fellowship founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith (Bill W. and Dr. Bob) in Akron, Ohio. AA states that its “primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety”. With other early members Wilson and Smith developed AA’s Twelve Step program of spiritual and character development. AA’s Twelve Traditions were introduced in 1946 to help AA stabilize and grow. The Traditions recommend that members and groups remain anonymous in public media, altruistically help other alcoholics, including all who wish to stop drinking, and do not affiliate AA with any other organization. The Traditions also recommend that AA members acting on behalf of the fellowship steer clear of dogma, governing hierarchies and involvement in public issues. Subsequent fellowships such as Narcotics Anonymous have adopted and adapted the Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions to their respective primary purposes.
