MT. HOPE - Tuesdays heat didn't stop the thousands of boy scouts in the area from enjoying The Jamboree's opening ceremonies at Summit Stadium
This is the first National Jamboree to take place in West Virginia and scouts were impressed to see the layout. About 40,000 scouts are staying at the summit, making it the third largest city in West Virginia.
Scouts will have the opportunity to do some mountain biking, zip lining, shooting, skate boarding and BMX riding.
The jamboree continues with a full slate of activities. Scouting representatives say Governor Earl Ray Tomblin is scheduled to speak to the scouts again to commemorate West Virginia day at The Jamboree.
