·         Mr. Jeff Hummel has a unique opportunity for older Scouts to travel overseas through six countries, learn about their history and culture, and see some amazing sites.  The trip is sponsored by Baton Rouge High, will be from November 17-28, 2017, and will be supervised throughout.

Official description:
Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria
Travel through the Iron Curtain and World War II to Gothic cathedrals and ancient cities that are now more vibrant than ever.
Berlin mixes historical significance, rich culture and an exciting cosmopolitan energy.  Prague, which escaped the bombs of World War II, woos you with old-world charm.  And in Krakow and Budapest, two of Europe’s most underrated cities, architectural gems await around every corner.

Also please see the following notes from Mr. Hummel:
The Trip to Germany is a trip being sponsored by Baton Rouge High and is welcoming of all EBR Parish students. This trip will go through Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, and Serbia most likely in that order. Anybody who wants to attend MUST show proper Scout conduct and be respectful of laws regarding the areas we'll visit.

Please note the following requirements:
Age should be 14 or above
Preferably High School
Ability to speak another Central or East European Language such as German, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Austrian, and Serbian
Willing to behave and show proper conduct

If you wish to attend, contact Jeff Hummel regarding this trip.
