US Naval Academy Jamboree – Annapolis, MD – Jan 18-20, 2013

2013 Annapolis USNA – NESA Jamboree – January 18-21, 2012



Each January, the 400+ Eagle Scouts who attend the United States Naval Academy (USNA) host an invitational jamboree.  Troop 49 has been invited to attend the 2013 program.  This is a rare opportunity for scouts aged 14 & up to visit the campus of the United States Naval Academy and spend a day with the Midshipmen who are the future officers of the Navy.  The program includes the offering of merit badges in the “STEM” category (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics).  In addition to the merit badges, scouts will get the opportunity to participate in training sessions, view displays, and tour the USNA.

We will be departing Oakland just after schools get out on Friday, January 18th and travel nearly five hours to Letts YMCA camp near to the USNA, where we will camp (cabin).  We will depart no later than noon Sunday, and likely earlier.
