Are YOU interested in talking with Scouts from all over the world WITHOUT using a cell phone? Are you interested in learning more about two-way radio, ham radio and work toward earing a merit badge? Then we invite you to join us on October 21st, 2023 at Belk Scout Camp to have FUN! We are partnering with the Charlotte, NC armature radio club W4CQ to help MCC Scouts and Scouters experience JOTA.
JOTA (Jamboree-on-the-Air) and JOTI (Jamboree-on-the-air-International) is the world’s largest digital Scout event taking place online and over the air. The educational event brings together more than 2 million Scouts every year in October for a weekend of Scouting and friendship. Young people can learn about communications technology and connect with fellow Scouts from over 173 countries.
JOTA-JOTI is about the 21st century skills you can learn in Scouting and the values of global citizenship. The event is open to Scouts around the world, enabling young people to connect and communicate with each other using the Internet and amateur radio. JOTAJOTI engages youth in educational activities that build teamwork, cross-cultural understanding, and skills for the future
