Japan 2015

One of the benefits of Scouting is the ability to learn new skills and explore the world. In 2015 the troop is planning to head to the World Scout Jamboree in Japan. While we are on our journey, we will see many sights and taste cultures unknown to the scouts except through books and movies. This is a huge event and will require a lot of planning and work to accomplish.

As the Jamboree will be running from July 28th to August 8th 2015, our plans are to travel during August. 
The initial flyer is here.

Our tentative itinerary is:

Day 1     7/31       Leave Boston
Day 2     8/1         Arrive in Osaka Japan
                             Shopping at Shinsaibashi and
                             Dotonbori for Dinner
Day 3     8/2         World Jamboree, return to Osaka
Day 4     8/3         Osaka Castle, Shitennoji Temple,
                             Hozenji Yokocho
Day 5     8/4         Osaka Aquarium and harbor, 
                             Osaka Boat tour
Day 6     8/5         Day Trip to Nara. Todaiji Temple,
                             Toshodaiji Temple
Day 7     8/6         Travel to Kyoto Nijo Castle
Day 8     8/7         Fushimi Inari Shrine, Golden
                             Pavilion, Gion for dinner
Day 9     8/8         Eikan-do, Toji Temple,
                             Kiyomizu-Zaka Street
Day 10   8/9         Return to Osaka and depart Japan

 

Initially we need to determine who is interested in going on this trip. Attendance for this trip is extended to registered members of the Boy Scouts and Troop 22. Adults may participate and a minimum number will be required to attend for safety reasons.

For those Cubs and Webelos who are currently in Pack 22 and are considering crossing into Boy Scouts, this trip is an option. We will work with those scouts and their families wishing to participate and include them into all fund-raising opportunities to help defray the cost of the trip.

For all those participating in the fund-raising activities, the money raised will be split between all those involved in the activity. If participants change their minds and withdraw from the trip, their funds will be spread among the rest of the group. There is no refund or reassignment of funds raised by the troop to other purposes.
