Concord, NC boy scout journals about Jamboree for local paper

CONCORD, NC (BY: CALEB WATSON, INDEPENDENT TRIBUNE) – When it comes to Boy Scouts, there are summer camps and weekend outings but nothing comes close to the experience of the National Boy Scout Jamboree.

Scouts from all over the world come together to enjoy the wonderful 19,000 acre scout reserve that’s purpose is to allow scouts to experience all that scouting has to offer.

 On July 19, 50 Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts from the Piedmont region will be joining 30,000 Scouts at the National Scouting Jamboree in Glen Jean, West Virginia. There the young men and women from the Central North Carolina Council will spend ten days enjoying many activities like scuba-diving with Navy Seals, zip lining, rock climbing, earning merit badges and meeting other scouts from around the world.

My name is Caleb Watson and while at The Summit I will be the Independent Tribune hometown reporter. I hope to share the experiences that some of our local boys and girls will experience. For the next two weeks, you can read about the different events and adventures of our local scouts.
