SAJ/BSA Friendship Program

February 4 – 13, 2011

The Scout Association of Japan has graciously invited the Boy Scouts of America to their annual SAJ/BSA Friendship Program, and the International Department of the Boy Scouts of America would like to extend this invitation to all BSA councils.

The cost of the trip will be determined in the near future by the cost of airline fares. The Scout Association of Japan will pay for half of the airfare, medical insurance, and all of the expenses while in Japan for all Scouts and leaders attending. The International Department will pay for domestic travel to Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas; hotel in Dallas/Fort Worth; luggage; neckerchiefs; and patches.

28 Scouts and six leaders nationally will be chosen to be a part of this incredible experience. Nomination forms for outstanding youth and leaders in our council are linked below. Please send the completed forms ASAP to Lee Kammerer at (email temporarily removed – will be updated when I get the right address). He will forward them on to National Council.
