Civil War | 2013 National Jamboree

Jambo 2013

This is the Troop 26 patch from the 2013 National Jamboree, the first at the Summit Bechtel Reserve. The theme of the trip’s itinerary was “Civil War,” as it roughly coincided with the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. Troop 26 scouts who attended this Jamboree were able to participate in a very rainy pledge coin ceremony at Gettysburg National Cemetary at the end of a very rainy trip. Many videos and pictures from this trip can be found on the Troop A229 and Troop C117 pages.

Zombie Apocalypse Campout, 2013

Zombies 2013

The Zombie Apocalypse Campout was an exciting survival experience featuring lots of first aid and survivalist opportunities after a zombie raid of the campsite. Under SPL Austin Hinds, the troop faced the challenges of a true zombie apocalypse by building shelters and utilizing the survivalist techniques they had learned so far in scouts to help them fend off the undead army. In all, it was a pretty exciting campout. If you have any additional stories or information about this patch that you would like us to add to this page, please let us know.
