National Treasure Trip

Troop 15 National Treasure Adventure:

Next summer the Scouts of Troop 15 are embarking on an incredible adventure in search of America's National Treasure and a visit to the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree. Beginning with a flight from OKC to Washington DC, our scouts will tour the national mall at night; from the U.S. Capital to the White House to the Lincoln Memorial. Our trip will include two days in Washington; visiting with Oklahoma elected officials, exploring the Smithsonian and the National Archives. From there it's a quick train trip to Philadelphia for a first hand look at the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Then on to the sacred grounds of Gettysburg for a special Civil War program geared specifically to scouts. After camping overnight at Gettysburg, it's on board a steam locomotive for a scenic trip to the Boy Scout National Jamboree in West Virginia. There we'll interact with thousands of scouts from across the country and take-in the BSA's newest high adventure camp at the Summit Bechtel Reserve. From there,Troop 15 will hike a portion of the Appalachian trail en-route to colonial Williamsburg, where our scouts will experience life during the Revolutionary War period...and make a trip to Bush Gardens theme park before departing for OKC.

Ultimately, our scouts will uncover a national treasure more valuable than gold...helping them better understand their calling in this great adventure of America. Make plans to join Troop 15 on this once in a lifetime experience.
