Report to the Nation Recap: Days 1 and 2

 D.C. is covered in snow but that’s not stopping the Report to the Nation delegates from representing the Scouting movement and touring the nation’s capital as they prepare to deliver the great works of the Boy Scouts of America to the government’s top officials.

Venturing VP Jillian Infusino snapped this photo of, as she puts it, “the lovely blanket of snow Washington, D.C. currently has.”


Report to the Nation Delegation Arrives in D.C.

On Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015, the delegation, minus Eagle Scout Alex Call whose flight was delayed due to weather, assembled in the nation’s capital

Our Report to the Nation field reporter, Venturing Vice President Jillian Infusino explained, “Today we got to know each other and had lots of group bonding. We went to Goddard Space Center and had a wonderful tour of the facility.”

Report to the Nation has been a BSA staple since 1916, but Scout selfies are a new tradition.

Day 2 of Report to the Nation

The exciting tour de D.C. continued on Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, as the delegates checked a few other must-sees off their lists.

Delegates attend church service at the United States Naval Academy.


Jillian gave us the following recap of the day:

“Today we toured the snow covered United States Naval Academy, which was beautiful. We also attended church on campus, which was a delight.

“We then headed to the Natural History Museum and got two behind the scenes tours: on the birds floor and on the mammals floor.

“We ended the day with a tasty dinner and visiting some of the historic monuments.”
