TRANSATLANTIC COUNCIL (TAC)
The Transatlantic Council is one of two Boy Scouts of America councils serving American families abroad. We are based in Brussels, Belgium and serve U.S. families living in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Mid-Asia. We serve 6,100 youth through 2,750 volunteers in 200 Scouting units.
There are two programs held at War Memorial Cemeteries. The British Scouts conduct a ceremony at Bayeux on Saturday. The closing ceremony for the camporee is held at the American Cemetery at Colleville sur Mer on Sunday morning where Scouts will lay a commemorative wreath.
