BSA National Jamboree
By CODY VOYLES
STARKVILLE – Thirty-six Boy Scouts and four adult leaders left July 14 for the National Scout Jamboree at the brand new Summit Bechtel Reserve near Beckley, W. Va.
This is a contingent Troop made up of Boy Scouts from across the Pushmataha Area Council with Scouts attending from Columbus, Starkville, Amory, Eupora, Louisville, New Hope, Houston, Ackerman, French Camp and Okolona. Boy Scouts attending range in age from 12-17.
The National Scout Jamboree is held every four years and will run from July 15-24. It will be attended by over 47,000 Boy Scouts, adult leaders and staff, along with thousands of day visitors. The Summit Bechtel Reserve is 10,600-acres in size and is adjacent to the New River Gorge National River.
The Summit includes 27-miles of cross-country bike trails, 28,000-feet of ziplines and an X Games-quality skate park among many programs and activities.
After this inaugural Jamboree at The Summit, the next National Scout Jamboree will be in 2017 and The Summit has been selected as the home for the 2019 World Scout Jamboree.
For more information about Scouting, please call the Pushmataha Area Council at 662-328-7228.
